Omoyele Sowore, the African Action Congress (AAC) presidential candidate, has revealed that he assisted Peter Obi in becoming the Labour Party’s presidential candidate.

Sowore recalled how he and activist lawyer Femi Falana assisted LP in choosing Obi when the party had difficulties.

The AAC presidential candidate stated that he and Falana pursued legal action to support LP, revealing that that there were calls that Obi should not be presented for the role.

He spoke at the memorial lecture held in honour of the late human rights lawyer and activist, Chief Gani Fawehinmi, in Lagos on Monday.

Sowore revealed that they got a court judgment that Falana used in defending LP.

“When the Labour Party ran into a problem, there was a member of the LP who insisted that the LP could not present the candidacy of Peter Obi. They had a legal problem.

“We went and obtained a judgment in court, from the Court of Appeal and handed it over to Falana to use it to defend the Labour Party, and by extension, Peter Obi’s candidacy.

“Yes! I’m just telling you that we’re in the business of saving people,” Sowore said.
