African Action Congress presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, has picked a lawyer from Kano State, Haruna Magashi, as his running mate.
Sowore, who is also the leader of the #RevolutionNow Movement, said Peter Obi’s Labour Party does not exist in Kano, which boasts of the highest voters in past elections.
He also noted that his party would defeat the ruling All Progressives Congress and main opposition Peoples Democratic Party in next year’s election.
Sowore, who made the announcement on Thursday in Abuja, said that his running mate has what it takes to deliver Kano, his home state, for the AAC during the 2023 general election.
He said, “We hope to defeat APC over there because the governor has messed up; we know that we will defeat PDP, that’s the party that’s in crisis as we speak.
“We don’t need to talk about the Labour Party in Kano because the party doesn’t exist,” the AAC candidate said.
“We know that we will defeat Alhaji Kwankawso and his party, the NNPP in Kano because we have got someone who is from there.”
The AAC had earlier submitted Magashi’s name to the Independent National Electoral Commission.
