Drama As Sowore Protests Sitting Arrangement At NPC Meeting

KANO – Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, created mild drama at a one-day roundtable meeting organised by the National Peace Commission (NPC) as Sowore protested the sitting arrangement at venue of the event.

It took the intervention of Abdulsalami who persuaded Sowore to sit down when he threatened to remain standing or leave the meeting to return normalcy to the meeting.

“The sitting arrangements should have been alphabetical. I note that this happened at the ICC during the signing of the peace accord and this is not fair,” Sowore said.

It would be recalled that the National Peace Commission (NPC) has subjected presidential candidates and their political parties to fresh commitment to the peace pact they earlier signed ahead of the polls.

This is just as co-chairman of the peace committee and former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, appealed to the 18 presidential candidates to stop overheating the polity and causing tension in the country.

Abdulsalami stated this recently during a one-day roundtable meeting of the peace committee with the leadership of the nation’s 18 registered political parties and their presidential candidates.

The former Nigerian leader had on Wednesday, January 18, 2023 told politicians to restrain from their utterances in order not to incite violence in the coming general elections.

Abdulsalami who spoke in Kano where eight political parties and their candidates signed a peace accord noted that Nigerians are disturbed over the likely outcome of the forthcoming 2023 general elections due to their fear that the polls might be inconclusive and marred by violence.
