OSUN 2022; OLUFEMI JOHNSON OF THE AAC IS OKAY

OSUN DESERVES A NEW DAWN

We use this opportunity to inform that our candidates for the Governorship and Deputy Governorship offices in the Osun 2022 Elections are:

Olufemi  Eniola JOHNSON (Governorship)

Olugbenga Justus Odunewu (Deputy-Governorship)

Both are the properly elected candidates of the party in the forthcoming elections. The Sogbadero Team will bring a new spring of radical change to the whole of Osun, and save our people from the current fear of voting between the devil and the deep blue sea!

We condole with all Nigerians that are under the scourges of massive insecurities. We call on the Buhari government to stop trading with the lives of Nigerians through its inept, impune, and incompetent rulership of the country.

We believe that Nigerians should obtain their voters cards, engage massively in civil actions and take their destinies into their hands by voting the People’s Candidates and standing against all oppressions!

Another Nigeria is Possible!

NIGERIANS HAVE BEEN DISAPPOINTED, BUT NOT FOR MUCH LONGER

Dear ever-enduring Nigerians

I do not need to ask if you are fine for it won’t be surprising if you are not fine at this moment, especially after watching this most distasteful of engagement any leader could have with his/her citizens. We understand how you all felt after watching Buhari and Osinbajo speak at the just-concluded town hall meeting organized by NTA/DariaTV and sponsored by MacArthur Foundation.

We understand that many of us burnt fuel to watch the ‘talking down’ because of the unrivaled darkness they keep expending our collective resources on without any tangible results.  Many had to stream live on their gadgets with very costly data rates – such expensive rates can only be found in a country with no solid economic leadership. This is not adding the fact that you probably had to pray to God for the reception of a man-made network to work fine.

We are not oblivious to the fact that the President could not answer your questions correctly. He lied about a lot of issues, about questions bordering on corruption and security. And for those he did answer, the questions had to be repeated, an average of three times each. The anchor had to continually stretch forward while asking her questions and, at a point I consider to be her threshold, she had to ask if the President was okay to run for office again. This situation of extreme lethargy is completely unacceptable from anyone who wants to lead an energetic country, a country with 70% young people, whose energies have been refocused to less productive things by unproductive leaders with disastrous results.

Can we crave your indulgence to bear with NTA for the time wasted as you have always been known as the most enduring people in the world?

On the 23rd January, 2019, Omoyele Sowore and Dr Rabiu Rufai of the AAC will be having the most  honest and brilliant engagement with you all on how to take the country back and place it on a revolutionary path in order to take it to the highest level.

Stay tuned!

OMOYELE SOWORE, NEDG AND BON IN COURT ON PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE.

THE EXCLUSION OF AAC FROM THE 2019 PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE.

John Momoh, the chairman of BON, has been knocked off as a hiccup factor in the court proceeding to determine the inclusion of African Action Congress and Omoyele Sowore in the upcoming presidential debate.


In a press release after the court session today, January 8, 2019, the legal adviser of African Action Congress, Inibehe Effiong, has stated that there is no reason to worry and that the party has achieved a remarkable feat with the urgency with which the court has treated the case. This is owned to the fact that the case in question has limited timeline. He is currently tasked to follow up on the reassignment of the case by the Chief Judge, Abuja.

Prequel to the court proceeding, Nigerians and some other candidates have provoked shifting responses from the debate organizers, and yet, we are to be included for the upcoming debate. Different polls results, including the online polls by NEDG and BON, placed AAC at one of the top three positions. This established the growing interest of Nigerians for an alternative voice and a basis to consider the AAC exclusion from the debate as malicious and/or an attempt to stifle robust political engagement in Nigeria.

We are hopeful to get justice before the date of the debate which is January 19, 2019. We also hope that the judiciary ceased this opportunity to set an important precedent to strengthen democracy.
