The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, has described the endorsement of his counterpart in the Labour Party, Peter Obi, by former president Olusegun Obasanjo as an “endorsement of failure.”
Reacting on Monday via a Facebook post, Sowore described Obasanjo as an overrated Nigerian ruler who “fetsihised the rumination of Nigeria.”
He said rather than an Obasanjo’s endorsement, he would rather be satisfied by ‘the ‘people’s endorsement.’
“Obasanjo’s repeated endorsement of Peter Obi shows once again that the overrated three-time Nigerian ruler fetishises the ruination of Nigeria.
“Failure endorsing Failure. For us, we crave and are satisfied with the endorsements of the people,” the AAC standard bearer said.
The endorsement of Obi by Obasanjo on Sunday sparked reactions across rival political camps, with the All Progressives Congress describing it as a ‘worthless’ political move, adding that it would not affect the ambition of its presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu.
The Peoples Democratic Party also made similar remarks.
