AAC has more political structure than the Labour Party — Sowore tells Peter Obi

Omoyele Sowore, presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), says the Labour Party (LP) has become an orphanage for displaced politicians.

In a video shared on his Twitter handle, Sowore, the publisher of Sahara Reporters asked members of LP and supporters of Peter Obi to join the AAC, saying the former has no structure to win an election.

Obi left the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) for LP after it was clear he will not secure enough votes to win the PDP presidential ticket.

The former governor of Anambra won the LP presidential primary election days after he joined the party.

“The Labour Party has become an orphanage for politicians that are homeless. It didn’t take long before our man ran there when he became homeless,” Sowore said in the viral video.

“The Labour Party should not have in its company somebody who managed 13 months of workers’ strike in Anambra state.

“The reason Obi left PDP was that they outplayed him with transactional politicking. Where is the structure of the Labour Party? You should ask yourself.

“In 2019, the Labour Party presidential candidate got 5,000 votes. I was allocated 33,000 votes. So even if you want to look at the structure, a structure that delivered 33,000 votes is probably bigger and better than that of 5,000 votes.

“The Labour Party and the Peter Obi people should come and join us. We are the ones who know how to stand up for you.

“I am not here to do ethnic politics, I’m not here to do religious politics. I’m here for the liberation of the Nigerian people.”
