Over the years, the Nigerian nurses like all other professionals have been fed with a wage only sufficient for them to wake the next day to slave away and again. Despite the poor wages and conditions of work, they have toiled to achieve whatever health outcomes we have today. They deserve respect and dignity of labour; all that we as a party have explained in our manifesto for total liberation. 



Our attention has been drawn to a post believed to be a press release emanating from the intra-party advisory council (IPAC) in Ogun state, wherein some elements endorsed the Governor for re-election.

We want to state unequivocally that the African Action Congress (AAC) is not part of such charade, as a separate party or as a member of IPAC. Our party is distinct in ideology and principles and would not endorse a Governor that does not represent any pro-people agenda.


Dapo Abiodun is one Governor who should be apologizing to Ogun state citizens and not campaigning. This is why we find it ridiculous that an advisory council who should actually act as a constellation of major opposing voices, would have anything to do with meeting the Governor, let alone endorsing him for re-election.


From dishing out crumbs as governance and littering the states with half-completed projects yet launched , the “contract percentage” Governor has failed woefully to deliver good governance to the people and should not be rewarded with another term.


The AAC seizes this medium to restate its commitment to stay the course and to assure the good people of Ogun State that help is on the way. Our candidate remains the indefatigable Mr HARRISON ADEYEMI and we urge every electorate who is tired of the misgovernance of Mr Dapo’s 4 ruinous years to vote the AAC.

Liberty is on the ballot.

Sowore kicks as INEC raises concerns over 2023 elections

Sowore kicks as INEC raises concerns over 2023 elections

Omoyele Sowore made this known while stating his position on the statement released by inec, in an interview with sunrise daily channels tv. There is always a conspiracy against democracy in this country, he said.

“We had a meeting as party leaders with security agencies in the country at the IG’s office a few weeks ago and we did raise this issue but they as usual downplayed it.

“What has happened to Nigeria this year is that Nigeria has failed successfully in the security area. We found out that a lot of non-state actors are in control of territory.

“They deactivate the public interest in elections. There is always a secret agenda in every electioneering cycle. There have been rumors to have an interim government and now INEC is coming out to say the election may not hold as planned because of security issues.

“We have always known we have a security issue but having pushed Nigerians into a point where everybody is now ready for an election and now saying in a few days to the election that it won’t go as planned is basically to make people lose interest in the election itself.”

He said the ruling class have other plans not for the sake of Nigerians but their personal interests.

“The Nigerian presidential election has always been postponed for one reason or another, but this time around, I see no reason why the election should be postponed. Inec should be well prepared by now because. It is 46 days until the election. The election should go on as planned unless there is something beneath that has not been told to the public.”

He said there is more to this than the media eyes.
Proffering solutions to the security issue he said, “There is a problem of militancy, that is why we can’t sell more than a million barrels of crude on a daily basis.

There is a problem of agitation for nationhood in the southwest and southeast, banditry in the northeast, terrorism in the northwest and above all, there is also governmental terrorism sprouting from the ideal of killing people who participate in peaceful protests.”

He said he will look at all these areas as the president of Nigeria and bring out what will fit each peculiar security challenge.

“For southwest it will be dialogue, for the bandits it will be stick. For the militants it will be further dialogue on how to fix their environment and the issue that is making this militancy come together.”

He said, without solving the socio-economic problem of the people, we can’t get the kind of security that will be needed.

“The damage done by the government to its citizens is what we are reaping from. If you have done justice to the southeast after the civil war nobody would be agitating for Biafra.

The AAC presidential candidate said leadership must be applied in solving the dislocation in society. He also said any kind of terrorism that lasts more than 10 years requires more than shooting at people.

Speaking on his ambition, Omoyele Sowore said his political party led the transformational and innovative style of campaign. There are multidimensional ways of campaigning and that’s what his party has engaged in.

He also said the media doesn’t cover them as they do other ‘big pockets,’ he said he is relying on the people. “We are bringing ideas to bear on a political process. I am sure ideas would win one day in this country.

“Nigeria has a foundational problem that is why people are asking for restructuring. Nigeria is about to tip over if drastic decisions are not taken, Sowore said while addressing the issue of decision-making as the president.

“Creating a brand new constitution that will take into consideration, cutting down the governance by getting rid of the senate, right people would be put in charge of security and his government will aggressively pursue electricity.

“Within my few days in office, I want to sign contracts to put this country out of darkness and that would be by generating twenty thousand megawatts of electricity, he said.”

To put people out of poverty, we have to industrialize and produce, to produce we must have electricity. It is impossible to experience the industrial revolution without electricity. The rest with infrastructure, healthcare, and agriculture to feed the nation would be adequately pursued and attained.

”Nigerians shouldn’t pay more for fuel”: Sowore on fuel subsidy.

”Nigerians shouldn’t pay more for fuel”: Sowore on fuel subsidy.

Nigerians shouldn’t pay more for fuel: Sowore on fuel subsidy.

The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, has said: “Nigerians shouldn’t pay more for fuel and it should be their right”.

Sowore said this during an interview on Arise tv morning show while replying to a question on fuel subsidies. When asked if he would keep the subsidy despite the deficit budget that’ll be inherited.

He also made a revelation that the supposed subsidy on fuel is a fraud. According to Sowore, every country in the world is giving the best to their citizens.

“Norway has some of the best welfare for their citizens. Like free education, and free healthcare. Nigeria is the only country at this level of oil producing stage that is punishing its citizen with the lie of oil subsidy. What has not happened is to have a leadership in place that can check the fraud,” he said.

Sowore described many of the companies that are involved in subsidy removal in Nigeria as “scammers”. According to him, they’ve been proven to be scammers, adding that many of them are facing international sanctions, especially those in Switzerland and other places. “They have been made to pay huge fines to the US government when they are not even doing the kind of businesses they are doing in Nigeria,” Sowore said.

Sowore further said, “Even when you remove the subsidy, they’ll figure out a strategy again to come back and say they need more. They are holding the country by the jugular until their hands are removed and the country controls the resources. He said, he’ll nationalize the NNPC to follow up on that”.

Sowore said he would not remove but keep the subsidy despite the deficit budget that’ll be left by Buhari’s administration.

“What they parade as subsidy is how the economic cabals in the system have figured out how to get themselves paid for a job not done. Jonathan’s administration was forced to find out that those who were collecting subsidies were not delivering fuel to Nigeria. One of the badges claimed to be bringing subsidized fuel to Nigeria had sunk twenty years before. All these perpetrators were before the court, and none of the cases to my knowledge has reached conviction till today.

“Those of us who have that experience on the lies that have been told to cover up subsidy know it’s a lie that is told from time to time,” he added.

Suggesting a way forward, Sowore said to have the availability of these (fuel) products, the government should fix its own refineries instead of investing in private refineries like that of Dangote in Lagos.

He said: “According to the government, the only product that is subsidized is petrol. Even though diesel, kerosene, and aviation fuel are not subsidized, there is no effect any benefit from it. In fact not only that they can’t be found on a daily basis, but their prices also keep fluctuating”.

He concluded, “If the subsidy is removed without any plan to support the poor people of the country that means petrol will go to #1000 naira and people who are being paid #30,000 minimum wage wouldn’t be able to survive.

Government should not exist to make life miserable for the citizen. It should exist to find solutions to problems that are afflicting the populace. Government should not exist for palliatives but concrete leadership to bring about the planned development.”

My activism birthed Nigeria’s democracy

My activism birthed Nigeria’s democracy

The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, speaking on the topic ‘Why youths don’t participate in Nigeria politics,’ in an interview with Super screen TV said
“A lot of politician lies and sugarcoat, that’s why I don’t like to be called a politician cause it makes me feel I’m part of them.”

He said he is different in character, he has made sacrifices and has scars to show for it. “Nigerian people gained democracy as a result of my activism. That was the most important thing when I was young. The goal was to drive the military out however, it is very disappointing that the democracy turned out to be fake.”

Sowore said the people that were driven out in the 90s are now back, citing the example of president Muhammad Buhari who was the head of state in 1984 and still the president in 2023.

“In 1925, young people created Nigerian youth movement to fight for Independents. People like herbert Macaulay, Okoli, and young women of then are not excluded. Over time, young people are being relegated to the background and now, young people are being engaged in thuggery,” Sowore said.

“Young people are running to abroad to find greener pastures. What society does to it’s young people is to educate them, provide another opportunity for people who are not interested in school, provide jobs, that’s how to get society developed,” he said.

Sowore said enforcing a digitized economy would tackle corruption and allow transparency and accountability.
