Former presidential candidate and Revolution Now convener, Omoyele Sowore, has kicked against calls from some Nigerians who want Vice President Yemi Osinbajo and former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, to join the presidential race, describing it as dead on arrival.
Sowore, in a Facebook post, also described the presidential aspirant, Bola Tinubu, who declared recently, as a “Jagaban of corruption”.
He wrote: “Three weeks ago you would think the election had been decided when Jagaban of Corruption, Bola Tinubu “declared” his intention to run but as soon as he discovered that his ambition was Dead on Arrival, he took his ambulance and fled to London!”
On Osinbajo, he said: “Then #MinimeBuhari showed up, I am referring to the cowardly VP Professor Yemi Osinbajo, you would think he’d won the election but soon as he was challenged about his current abysmal assignment, hope began to fade for the law professor who constantly claimed his hands are tied.”
On Obi, who was the running mate to former vice president Atiku Abubakar in the 2019 presidential election, Sowore said his presidential ambition is also dead on arrival, calling him “Chinese Pandora paper man”.
He said: “It is now the turn of the #Chinese Pandora PaPer man, Peter Obi! Ah, he’s gonna open a Gofundme to finance his campaign after all the funds looted from Anambra during his tenure as Governor! This too is dead upon discovery just as transparent dodo!
“The truth is that we’ve changed course, no more hanging our patrimony to deceitful, decrepit conmen that ruined Nigeria. We are not apologetic about it. The organic structures have taken over from the criminal transactional structures of the terminators.”
