“Some of us will leave Nigeria if Sowore becomes president” – Abdulsalami Abubakar

A former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (retd.), has jokingly said that he and some of his contemporaries will flee Nigeria in the event Omoyele Sowore, Presidential Candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), becomes president of the country.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that during the National Peace Committee (NPC) meeting under the leadership of Gen. Abubakar on Friday in Abuja, the AAC candidate was asked by the former Nigerian leader to “reconcile” with Action Alliance (AA) candidate, Major Hamza Mustapha.

However, Sowore stated that his disagreement was political, adding that “I have issues with all the military people that annulled the June 12, 1993 elections including him (Gen. Abubakar).”

Replying, the elder statement said: “Sowore, you are talking about 20 years ago. By the time you become the president of this country, I think some of us will leave this country.

“I think quite honestly, let bygones be bygones. What has happened has happened. Let’s go on with what is in front of us.”
