2023 Election: Sowore Promises Referendum If Elected

The presidential campaign council of the African Action Congress (AAC) has assured that if its presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore is elected to preside over Nigeria on February 25, he will call for a referendum on the constitution.


Newsonline reports that the party said under the APC administration of President Muhammadu Buhari, Nigerians’ lives have worth more than nothing.


African Action Congress spokesman Onyinye-Gandhi Chukwunyere, in a statement on Thursday, said, “In summary, life for Nigerians under Buhari and the APC has become brutish, nasty, and short.”

Chukwunyere promised that if Sowore is elected, he will turn the country around for the betterment of the citizens.


He assured that education, healthcare, electricity, shelter, and employment will be basic rights of the citizens. He added that transparency and accountability will be enjoyed under the government of AAC.


The statement added further, “We wish to assure the Nigerian people that with their support, this terrible state of affairs will soon be over. The presence of the AAC and our presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, on the ballot in 2023 presents a unique opportunity for our people to reclaim their country and put the ruinous years of this APC government and its equally culpable predecessors behind us.


“The AAC manifesto which is essentially a blueprint for the revolutionary transformation of Nigeria proposes bold political, economic, and social interventions to immediately halt the national decline, and set the country on a solid path to rapid socio-political and economic development.”


Speaking on how the Sowore government will achieve a better country for the citizens, Chukwunyere added, “For a start, we’ll aggressively seek a referendum to facilitate the birth of a new people-oriented Constitution which will address the lingering political and economic injustices at the root of major conflicts in the country. We’ll create and strengthen sustainable institutions to heal and unite the people of Nigeria.


“We’ll democratically socialize the economy in order to bring it within the ownership and control of the Nigerian people. We’ll protect the national treasury and commit collective resources towards strategic investments in energy, healthcare, education, and national security which, taken together, would transform our backward mono-economy into a modern industrial and technological hub, eliminating unemployment and boosting living standards.”
