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.
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.

We are making appreciable progress in our bid to put up party offices across the country. I am elated that our members are responding positively for the call in this regard.
I also thank all that have donated offices and also assisted in equipping them. I salute Chief Ugo Ireoche, who has offered and actually provided funds to equip the party office in Umuahia. I commend Crespo Alemo, Chief Akin Olaosun for the Alimosho and Oyo Offices respectively. Others that have also answered this call, we thank you all.
Building a new political party is not an easy task. It is tortuous, hugely demanding. We need to exercise a lot of patience, and deal maturely with every body.
This journey will task us more in the days and weeks ahead and require that we put our heads straight to overcome all the stumbling blocks.
Comrades, we are doing everything possible to get the necessary tools you all require to undertake this task of ‘taking back our country Nigeria’. We crave for your understanding during this trying period!
As we make efforts to erect these offices I appeal further that intending donors should consider the States ‘ Capitals as it will help impact the project more. Symbolic and strategic importance for this, far outweigh every other consideration. This is not to diminish the value of LG Office erection.
We will soon make public additional progress in this regard in the days ahead.
Thank you all,
African Action Congress
