The African Action Congress (AAC) presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, declared on Saturday he has the capacity to transform Nigeria if elected as president in 2023.
The activist stated this when he featured in an interview programme on Arise TV in Lagos.
Sowore, who decried the high rate of poverty in Nigeria, said Nigeria deserves new leadership that would show great interest in its growth and development.
He said: “I have better credentials than any other candidate. When I contested for students’ union president, Atiku Abubakar was contesting. This shows how old these people are.”
He described the 2023 elections as an inevitable watershed in the history of Nigeria and urged Nigerians to vote aggressively for a better country.
The elections, according to him, provide the perfect to rescue Nigeria from its hijackers and treasury looters.
Sowore added: “Nigeria doesn’t need only an election. It needs elections that can produce desired results and the change the country deserves. I’m coming out to canvass for revolutionary elections where a definite turning point will be made.
“We must rescue the country from its hijackers and looters and move in a new direction. The system has been dominated by moneybags who do things as they wish at the expense of innocent citizens.”
