Omoyele Sowore with Femi and Yeni Kuti; At the New Afrika Shrine.

Omoyele Sowore, the Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, AAC, was at the NEW AFRIKA SHRINE with Femi and Yeni Kuti, the children of the great Afrobeat icon, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, the musical taliban and an ardent Pan-Africanist.
The celebration at the shrine last night was lit and filled with absolute fun and communal spirit of love for Africa and show of patriotism for Nigeria.
Femi and Yeni Kuti had some wonderful time on the couch at the New Afrika Shrine with Omoyele Sowore.


During the conversation, Femi talked about the poor situation of the Nigerian health system and how it is probable that even President Buhari could not boast of his safety at the presidential villa, Aso Rock.


He was quoted saying “Buhari does not trust his own life in Aso Rock”.
While the discussion was ongoing, Yeni scornfully pointed out to viewers that Atiku Abubakar, without remorse, vouch to sell NNPC to private individuals, his friends in particular.He said, during one of his interviews that he would enrich his friends.Replying an interviewer, Atiku was quoted saying rethorically “Are my friends not entitled to be rich?”.


Meanwhile, Femi while talking about the poor state of the Nigerian health institution, related a story of what ensued at the Lagos state University Teaching Hospital, LUTH in Idi-Araba, Mushin Loca Government Area.

He talked about the situation at the hospital at Fela’s death, how there was no space in the morgue to store the corpse of the Afrobeat and revolutionary icon prior his burial.He recounted that there were so many corpses on the floor in the morgue and there was no place to put Fela, the personnels in charge had to pull out a corpse from the freezer in replacement for Fela’s corpse, in respect of him.
Femi described the incident as infuriating, but he was disgusted and flabbergasted, so he could not say nor do anything about it.
This reminds us of one of Fela’s best songs titled “CONFUSION BREAK BONE” with the chorus “DEAD BODY GET ACCIDENT”. May his soul rest in perfect peace.
Femi and Yeni Kuti also raised concerns about the African culture, especially how a lot of Africans are living with a colonial mentality and how so many white men and women make jest of Africans for being inferior and glorifying other people’s cultures above theirs.
Femi recalled a condescending event that took place in a certain white country while he was traveling back to Nigeria sometime ago. He recounted that some white women were mocking some black women for wearing artificial hair all in the bid to look white. I was not happy with what i witnessed, i noticed it, but i don’t think the black women noticed it, he said.
The Afrobeat musician said, if he would endorse any candidate for the presidency, it would be Omoyele Sowore.
The general elections is scheduled to hold this Saturday, we therefore urge Nigerians to not only vote, but to vote the right candidate, Omoyele Sowore, and not limit our options to the devil and the deep blue sea.
It Is Time To Take Our Country Back, with Omoyele Sowore of the African Action Congress, AAC.

Buhari and Atiku APC/PDP; Two Sides Of The Same Coin; Omoyele Sowore’s AAC, The Only Alternative For A Better Nigeria.

Amidst the rumbles of the upcoming 2019 general elections, in the hope of electing a new President for the most populous country in Africa and the 7th most populous country in the world, with an estimated population of

200,962,417 and a yearly change of 2.60 percent [ according to worldometers ]. Nigerians all over the world [ including the international community] are very much concerned with the outcome of the upcoming general elections on Saturday, the 16th of February, this year.
Meanwhile, The Guardian Newspaper, London, published a very interesting article on Monday, the 11th of February, 2019. The article read thus;


Nigeria’s 84 million voters will go to the polls next weekend to give their verdict on Muhammadu Buhari. The country is Africa’s most populous, and by some measures has the largest economy on the continent. Nigeria celebrated Mr Buhari’s election in 2015 as not only a resounding rejection of the unpopular Goodluck Jonathan but also the first democratic transition since the return of civilian rule in 1999.

Unfortunately, the highlight of Mr Buhari’s presidency appears to have been the gaining of it. The economy struggles, and his pledges to curb rampant corruption have been applied to political opponents. Insecurity remains a pressing issue: notably, Boko Haram appears to be resurging despite the government’s repeated assurances that it has beaten the extremist group, and a spreading herder-farmer conflict has killed thousands. The president’s extended absence overseas, for medical treatment, prompted such persistent rumours of his death and replacement by a body double that he felt obliged to tell voters: “It’s the real me, I assure you.”

A country with a median age of 18 faces, it would appear, an uninspiring choice between two septuagenarian political veterans. The slate of candidates is lengthy – helped by a 2018 reform which lowered the age limit for presidential candidates to 35 from 40. But the only serious rival to Mr Buhari and his All Progressives Congress party is the business tycoon and former vice-president Atiku Abubakar of the People’s Democratic party. Both men are Fulani Muslims from the north, and have chosen running mates from the south. Mr Buhari headed the military junta in the 1980s and now describes himself as a “converted democrat”. But Mr Abubakar has won the backing of an influential bloc including former military heads of state. Supporters portray him as an energetic contrast to the ineffective incumbent; opponents highlight corruption allegations, including a 2010 US Senate report which said that he and one of his wives had wired $40m of “suspect funds” into American accounts. Mr Abubakar denies the claims.- The Guardian UK, Monday, 11th February, 2019.

While it is obvious that neither of the candidates of the ruling All Progressives Congress and the former ruling Peoples Democratic Party is capable of making Nigeria a nation to be proud of in the league of developed nations.

Omoyele Sowore, of the African Action Congress, AAC is the only Presidential candidate among all, that is prepared and determined to make Nigeria the true giant of Africa and a country to be reckoned with in the world, especially in the United Nations and among developed countries of the world.

AAC; TAKE IT BACK!!!

AAC RALLY IN IKORODU, LAGOS.

Omoyele Sowore, Oluwaseun Ajireloja, and Francis Shonubi [Mani Congo] rallies with Nigerians in Lagos!

Omoyele Sowore, the Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, AAC, Mr. Oluwaseun Ajireloja, the gubernatorial candidate and the Lagos East senatorial candidate of the party, Mr. Francis Shonubi and other party loyalists were present at the rally in the Ikorodu area of Lagos state on Wednesday the 6th of February 2019.

The party through the Presidential candidate reiterated to Nigerians its plans for the spontaneous development of the country if elected into office.

The party was warmly welcomed in Ikorodu by some royalties and their chiefs.
Many Nigerians who have been admirers of the AAC Presidential candidate voluntarily followed the party members all around Ikorodu in excitement.
This event took place less than 48 hours after the party held the most organic mass-filled political campaign in Nigeria since the country became a republic in the year 1963.

As the February 16th 2019 general elections draw near, millions of Nigerians yearn for a genuine change not just of those in government but also for the failed system of governance, especially the Nigerian constitution which harbors a vacuum to protect corrupt government officials and politicians and also restrict citizens from holding corrupt responsible for their ineptitude.

The Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress who have being in the Nigerian political space for about thirty years as an activist and an investigative journalist who has been fighting for democracy and good governance and the eradication of corrupt politicians from our political sphere have been proven by antecedent to  be the only credible candidate worthy to be the next President of Nigeria by June 12th 2019 when the democratically elected President would be sworn into office after the February 16th general elections in less than two weeks from now.

Only You Can Take Your Country Back; Now!!!

Nigerians over the years have had so many bad governments, whether during the military regime or in this current democratic dispensation that began in the year 1999, after so many years of military dictatorships and coups, and more importantly, a military coup which toppled a democratically elected government and got so many innocent Nigerians imprisoned without trial.

Nevertheless, history will never forgive us and posterity will definitely condemn us if we fail to teach our children and inform Nigerians in general about the atrocities committed by these people, especially that of Muhammadu Buhari who was in fact one of the worse military dictators in Nigeria, whose fascist government and narcissistic character gruesomely subjected Nigerians, unfortunately, to gross cruelty with impunity.

“Buhari enslaved the nation. He gloated and gloried in a master-slave relation to the millions of its inhabitants. It is astonishing to find that the same former slaves, now free of their chains, should clamour to be ruled by one who not only turned their nation into a slave plantation, but forbade them any discussion of their condition.” ~ Prof. Wole Soyinka.

Just as it is today, so it was in the military era, except that the two other arms of government, the press, and rights activists are at least somewhat free due to democracy

A lot of atrocities have been committed against the Nigerian people and without doubt, it is time for us as a people who have been collectively battered, dehumanized, denigrated, starved, and dejected to rise up, stand as one and take our country back from these oppressors who still live with us and in fact still govern us with ineptitude and feel no remorse whatsoever for their mis-governance and maladministration and the long term retrogression into which they have sunk our dear country.

The government of the day is a government whose corruption fight is only against opposing political voices and persons, it is a government that harbors corrupt politicians within its own party yet go extra miles to bring every political oppositions and even opposing voices of concerned citizens to judgement with lawsuits and imprisonment.

“Driver Get Accident, Na Conductor Buhari Charge Go Court” ~ Fela Anikulapo.

The 2019 general elections is here in less than a month and the people would go vote at the ballot for a new President and a new government, but while we are at it, we have to put into cognizance all the problems facing us in the country which is majorly due to the inept character and the maladministration by our politicians in government over the years.

Hence we have to vote them all out come February 16th, 2019, and take our country back by voting in credible candidates with worthy antecedents who have the will to make our country a great place for us wherein we would have no reason to leave our country and become illegal immigrants in foreign lands, and some becoming victims of xenophobia or ending up in a precarious situation in Libya.

These are part of the reasons why am soliciting for votes from the electorate l plan to represent in my Constituency.Having had 15 years of engineering experience in my working carrier will enable me to perform oversight functions on committee(s) in my capacity.


Ade-Adedeji Adeyera LAGOS:IKEJA

Having worked as a Legislative Aide at the National Assembly and with a working knowledge of legislative doctrines and policies, I consider myself eminently qualified to be a Lawmaker. Most of all the old guards we seek to dislodge have seen Public office as a place to corruptly enrich themselves. That’s why a Lawmaker can earn so much and not sponsor a single bill in his years in office. However, all that’s about to change because we’re out to rewrite the history of governance and policies through qualitative and truly people-driven representation.


Ishola Olatunde Abraham LAGOS: SHOMOLU

I considered myself as the people of Zone 7, the knowledgeable disenfranchised Nigerian. I have live more than 13 years in a country that have one of the world best constitution and societal system of government. With my direct experience of modern society. I want to represent my people in creating a better society for all.

#TakeItBack from looters. Nigeria is at the verge of anarchy, nothing is working. Good and accountable governance would build the masses confidence and reduce the level of corruption and poverty to minimum ravaging the country.

Taiwo ibironke

I consider my candidacy a call to liberate and fight for a dividend of democracy denied to the people of my constituency. I am in this race to win and nothing else. I process the ability with experience to deploy strategic strategies using the knowledge of the constituency I know very well growing up as a child. At the moment, the main political parties PDP and APC are far from winning as both have disappointed the citizens in the past and people are wiser now. Our party AAC in the grass root of my constituency stands an advantage for voting power.
