Sowore Denounces Atiku/Obi Alliance, Calls It a "Mega Fraud"

Human rights activist and former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, has categorically rejected any potential alliance with Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, labeling the proposed merger as a "mega fraud."

In a recent interview with Pulse, Sowore emphasized that while he had not been approached about the alliance, his stance was clear. "Obi’s alliance is clear.

 He’s with his elder brothers, Atiku and the rest of them," Sowore stated. "I don’t crave Obi’s followers, and I cannot be in an alliance with him. If people who were misled to join him now feel that they have seen the light and want to join us, I’m happy to welcome them."

Sowore criticized Obi's ties to the PDP, recalling Obi’s role as Jonathan’s economic advisor. 

"His heart is with the PDP, which ruled this country for 16 years. Obi was Jonathan’s economic advisor when the PDP stole the most money during their tenure," he said.

 Sowore dismissed the narratives that support traditional political figures, describing them as distractions from good governance.

Further expressing his disdain for the concept of a mega party, Sowore accused Pat Utomi and other proponents of the idea of being entrenched in the same corrupt system. "I cannot be part of a mega fraud. Pat Utomi, who is trying to form a mega party, is Tinubu’s boy. 

There is a video of him dancing with Tinubu in his house. I have never been to Tinubu’s house before," he declared. Sowore described a mega party in Nigeria as a "coalition of mega political criminals."

Sowore also made it clear that he would not support any efforts to retain the APC in power or bring back the PDP. "I cannot be a part of anything that will retain an APC in power or bring back a PDP—never!" he asserted.

When asked about his plans for the 2027 presidential election after previous losses, Sowore remained skeptical about the current electoral system.

 "I’ve only contested elections twice, in 2019 and 2023... Is it true that I don’t believe in our electoral system as it is presently composed? Yes, I don’t. 

But by contesting this election, we are also throwing up the contradictions in the electoral system," he explained.

Sowore stressed the need for a revolutionary approach to governance in Nigeria. 

"We’re not going to change the country without people taking the next step further by saying, ‘Look, we know how the system works, and we’re going to defeat it.’

 And that’s where my own revolutionary idea starts," he concluded.
