Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, AAC, has challenged Nigerians to stop voting for analogue brains into power

The ACC candidate noted this among many others at the second phase of the Town Hall Meeting organized by Arise TV and Centre for Democracy and Development, CDD, in Abuja on Sunday.

He said, “Stop voting for analogue brains, enter into the digital; vote for the future and stop voting for the past,”

Sowore who had showed disgusts through his tweets last week on his exclusion from the first phase of the debate, as reported by IsL, also seized the opportunity to sought an apology from the organisers of the presidential town hall series – Centre for Democracy and Development and Arise Television, for allegedly excluding him from the presidential debate which was held on November 6, 2022, in Abuja.

“I must state that last week should have been the day we should all be here, but for some reason, you decided to invite the leads within the presidential race and we think you owe us an apology for that because Nigeria should stop bringing people who have no ideas to talk to Nigerians when those who have ideas are relegated to the background. That is where we have gotten it wrong all these years,” he said.

Recall that IsL had earlier reported that CDD and Arise TV last week invited Bola Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party for the debate.

IsL had gathered that their (organizers) claim was that the four candidates were selected based on the performance of their parties in an online survey by the organisers during which all the 18 political parties were listed in alphabetical order.

“The result of this survey informed our decision to invite the highest four scoring parties – LP, APC, PDP and NNPP to the town hall,” the Director of the CDD, Idayat Hassan had earlier said in a statement.

“All 18 political parties were listed in alphabetical order. After the survey was closed, nine parties did not receive a vote.

“The remaining nine received the following percentage of votes- African Action Congress – 20.7 per cent, APC – 86.2 per cent, All Progressives Grand Alliance – 6.9 per cent, LP – 96.6 per cent, NNPP – 51.7 per cent, PDP– 82.8 per cent, Peoples Redemption Party – 6.9 per cent, Social Democratic Party – 6.9 per cent and Young Progressive Party – 13.8 per cent.”

However, in the second phase of the Town Hall Meeting, other presidential candidates were invited to participate in the debate, they include Sowore of the AAC, Adebayo Adewole of the Social Democratic Party, SDP, Sani Yabagi Yusuf of the Action Democratic Party, ADP and Umeadi Peter Nnanna of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA.
