THE presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2023 general elections, Omoyele Sowore, has promised Nigerians that his administration will pay keen attention to education and will in the same way make education free at all level if he is elected president, come 2023.
The AAC presidential candidate made this vow on Sunday during his live interview on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
It will be recalled that one of the key points in his manifesto is free education.
In his words, Sowore said that “The money is there. I keep saying this to Nigerians and I say it with that knowledge of how they manage Nigeria’s economy”.
He also that the money which embezzled to other countries could have been enough to support free education in Nigeria for 50 years or even 100 years from now.
He further compared Nigeria with other oil-producing states, especially the United Arab Emirates (UAE), noting that Nigeria is behind.
In his words: “They provide free education for everybody. They even pay people to get married and we all started with the same oil that we are selling,” the activist-turned-politician said.
“But what we have been doing in Nigeria is corporate welfare and individual powerful people welfare.”
