Today, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, Omoyele Sowore, and his running mate, Dr. Rabiu Ahmed Rufai appeared in court for the hearing of the lawsuit brought against the Nigerian Elections Debate Group (NEDG) and the Broadcasting Organizations of Nigeria (BON) regarding the exclusion of the AAC from the upcoming presidential debates.
After an intense day consisting two court sessions where the defendants tried every trick in the book to delay and postpone the case, the judge finally ruled for the case to be postponed to settle some legal technicalities. The case will be assigned to a different judge and the new date will be announced shortly after full legal procedures have been met.
The AAC has always demanded to know why we were excluded from this debate. It is inconceivable that a debate stage will hold five presidential candidates and the most persuasive voice of the nation, the AAC is not included.
Several phone calls to Eddie Emesiri, the executive secretary for the NEDG has not yielded a conclusive response; choosing instead to hurl insults and allegations at the party and its founder.
We have never thought the road to freedom would be easy. We are well aware that those who have gained from the rot and decay of Nigeria would not take lightly to our demands for freedom. But the revolution has begun and Nigeria MUST progress.
We will see the NEDG/BON in court.
