Human rights activist, publisher, and politician, Omoyele Sowore has called out Vice President Yemi Osinbajo over the statement made during his official declaration to join the race for the 2023 presidency.
He accused the Vice President of insulting Nigerians with some of the submissions made in his declaration speech.
Naija News recalls after months of keeping Nigerians in the dark, Professor Osinbajo on Monday officially declared his intention to run for the presidency in 2023.
As part of his declaration speech, Osinbajo had promised to continue what the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari started.
“I am today, with utmost humility formally declaring my intention to run for the office of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on the platform of APC,” he had said.
He added in the video of his declaration that “If by the grace of God and the will of the people, I’m given the opportunity, I believe that first we must complete what we have started, radically transforming our security and intelligence architecture, completing the reform of our justice system, focusing on adequate remuneration and welfare of judicial personnel and ensuring justice for all and the observance of the rule of law…”
The submission however didn’t sit well with Sowore who pointed out that the Buhari administration has not recorded any success worthy of being continued.
He stated that what Nigeria and Nigerians have witnessed under the current government is insecurity, terrorism, lawlessness, and economic disaster which must not be allowed to continue.
“@ProfOsinbajo VP Yemi Osinbajo declaration is the most nauseating set of lies ever packaged! He even said he plans to build on the success of the @mBuhari regime. What an insult? Buhari’s successes are insecurity, terrorism, lawlessness, economic disaster. #WeCantContinueLikeThis,” Sowore wrote on Twitter.
