Ahead of the forthcoming general elections in Nigeria, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has maintained his stand that if after the 2023 general elections, he does not emerge as the winner, he will be happy because he has been an inspiration to younger Nigerians.
The AAC presidential flagbearer, who was on New Central’s Politics HQ on Thursday night said he is a blend of optimism and pessimism, while adding that “What is more important is my interest in making this country work. Politics should be a service. My kind of optimism is different. I expect the worst and hope for the best. I’m an optimist for the future. Even if we don’t get to be in charge directly, new generation would emerge that would not accept this kind of condition of existence and that we would have inspired them.
He also added that: “Whatever little contribution we can give or any sacrifice we can make now that will even make people in power think twice sometimes when they make decisions or policies are not bad for me. The fact that we are seeing younger generation of persons who are getting radicalised as well and promising that this system will catch hell one day if it continues this way is for me an optimistic engagement.”
