Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) on Wednesday said that ‘it is a matter of time before an injunction is granted that opposition groups can’t campaign in the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC’s) stronghold’.
Sowore’s remark was in reaction to a court order ruling against occupying Lekki Toll-Gate on October 1.
The Labour Party’s #ObiDatti23 Forward Ever Rally scheduled to be held on October 1, 2022, suffered a setback on Wednesday as a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos ordered the party and its supporters not to converge on the Lekki Toll-Gate.
The court ruled that supporters of the Labour Party can pass through the Toll-Gate for its rally but must not converge on the facility.
Sowore disagreed with the verdict and also castigated the complainant.
“It is completely wrong for anyone to have gone to court to stifle a legitimate political gathering by @PeterObi supporters at #Lekkitollgate and equally dangerous that a judge gave an order stopping the gathering.
“It is a matter of time before a crazy injunction is granted that opposition groups can’t campaign in @OfficialAPCNg stronghold.
“I totally condemn these acts. Nota Bene: No one should construe this as an endorsement of any candidate other than @YeleSowore of @aacparty #WeCantContinueLikeThis,” he wrote on his verified Twitter handle.
