Omoyele Sowore, human rights activist and presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 general elections, stated that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu lacked preparation for ruling and governing Nigeria.
The AAC presidential candidate revealed this in an interview with Daily Sun Newspaper.
According to him, apart from the electoral theft during the last elections, President Tinubu’s newly unveiled list of cabinet ministers consisted of the same individuals who had previously failed both Nigeria and its citizens, adding that it would be business as usual for them.
Sowore also noted that a government of national unity should be the one that appoints credible and competent citizens.
He added that Tinubu “who is a beneficiary of electoral theft can’t set up a government of “National Unity.
The human rights activist said, “I have made it very clear that the 2023 elections were a charade. One in which the Nigerian people were once again taken for a ride and their rights to free, fair elections were once again denied. Having said that, what I have witnessed since the beginning of the Tinubu administration has been that of a government that is unprepared to rule or govern.
“Major policies like foreign exchange deregulation and fuel subsidy removal, student loans, were rolled out without planning or preparation.
“The resulting effect has been skyrocketing inflation. The naira has lost almost half its value in just eight weeks. In the midst of all this economic pain, school fees for federal secondary and tertiary institutions have more than doubled, while workers’ wages have remained stagnant.
“The list of ministers that was just released was full of the same characters that have failed Nigeria and Nigerians and demonstrated conclusively that for this government, it will be business as usual.
“Nigeria’s concept of government of national unity is a government that appoints or accommodates non-members of political party into government.
“In real terms, a government of national unity should be the one that appoints citizens to organise credible elections. A person who is a beneficiary of electoral theft can’t set up a government of “National Unity.”
Sowore further stated that what Nigeria needs is clinical revolution.
