Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) has slammed his Labour Party (LP) counterpart, Peter Obi, for supporting the Central Bank of Nigeria’s (CBN) new naira policy.
Information Nigeria earlier reported that Obi, in a series of tweets on Sunday, begged Nigerians to endure with the policy, saying it would benefit them in the long term.
The former Anambra State governor, however, appealed to the apex bank to make the new notes available to Nigerians, especially those in the rural areas.
Sowore, in reaction to Obi’s stance via his Twitter handle on Sunday, said the LP candidate was in the presidential race to distract Nigerians from true liberation.
He further likened Obi to his counterparts in the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and Atiku Abubakar respectively.
Sowore tweeted, “This what we keep telling Nigerians about Peter Obi, this is the candidate ‘owners’ of Nigeria presented to distract Nigerians from truest liberation so that they can remain in the shackles of oppression and perpetually in bondage. At the end, he is the same as his mentors!”
