Why I Rejected Buhari’s Invitation In 2015 After He Won Election – Sowore; A Presidential aspirant on the platform of African Action Congress (AAC), Mr Omoyele Sowore
Said, he declined President Muhammadu Buhari’s request to see him after he was tagged into office in 2015 general election.
Sowore spoke at the weekend when he featured as a guest on the presidential hopeful interview talk show on 90MinutesAfrica.
Responding to a question on how he and other Nigerians helped Buhari win the administration in 2015, the activist said he didn’t work for his palm.
According to Sowore, he has noway met Buhari and he declined his request to see him when he was elect as Nigeria president.
Goodluck Jonathan misruled Nigeria so poorly that Buhari came seductive to people who were looking for an volition, he said.
“ Indeed when Buhari visited the United States after he won the election, he requested to see me but I declined. I’ve noway met Buhari ahead and I do n’t have any plans to meet him.
Sowore said Nigerians must be involved in demanding a change, noting that only also will the country be better for citizens.
I understand that Nigerians are slow with taking in new ideas, but we’ve to be harmonious and patient in telling them about the need for this revolution.
We ca n’t go to sit down and anticipate effects to work out themselves, he said. In March, Omoyele declared his intention to run for Nigeria number one position in 2023.
In April, a court of appeal in Abuja voided a ruling confining his movement to the Abuja city.
Ijeoma Ojukwu, judge of the civil high court, had in October 2019, granted bail to Sowore but asked him not to address any rally or public gathering and not to leave the FCT.
Sowore was arraigned in September 2019 on a seven- count charge of treasonable felony filed against him by the Nigeria government.
But the case has been stalled owing to the disinclination of the government to do with it
