“If I win the election, Buhari will not attend the inauguration.” — Sowore

The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has stated that if he wins the 2023 presidential election, President Muhammadu Buhari will not attend his inauguration ceremony.

Sowore made this statement on Friday during an interview with Politics Hub, a political show on Vanguard Online TV.

He said, “When I win the election, Buhari will not come to the swearing-in. I think some of them would have left before the day of swearing-in, and I’m serious about it. I just want you (Buhari) to know that you have a constitutional duty to hand over power.”

Meanwhile, Sowore dismissed claims that he supported Buhari prior to his election as president of Nigeria in 2015.

When asked at what point he stopped supporting Buhari, Sowore said, “I never supported Buhari. You can never stop supporting someone you never supported in the first place. What has prevailed over these years is a well-calculated campaign to blackmail me by saying I supported Buhari because I was against Goodluck Jonathan.

“What I have always done in my entire life is be opposed to terrible governance. It didn’t matter who was in charge, even if it was my dad, I would have opposed him if he was acting like Jonathan.

“But this is how to solve the puzzle. If I asked you to provide just one evidence that I supported Buhari, you will say you want to go and check, and you are supposed to know it because I never did.

“There was no time in my life that I campaigned for Buhari, wrote an article, or approached anybody individually and say, “Vote for Buhari.” I didn’t vote for Buhari because I didn’t register to vote until 2018. The first time I voted in my life in this country and probably in the world was in the 2019 election,” he said.
