“The level of poverty in Nigeria is alarming,” Sowore criticizes Tinubu

African Action Congress 2023 presidential candidate Omoyele Sowore has criticized President Bola Tinubu over his leadership style and the level of poverty in the country.

Sowore spoke in Benin, Edo State capital, on Friday, at the party’s campaign launch ceremony ahead of the state’s gubernatorial election on September 21.

He said Tinubu has failed to make a significant impact on the development and economic growth of the country.

He said that, almost a year into his administration, people are grappling with poverty and the pain caused by policies that have made them even poorer.

He said: “President Tinubu’s leadership style is bad and the poverty people are experiencing is alarming.

“Tinubu has failed to make a significant impact on the development and economic growth of the country after almost a year of his administration, as the people struggle with poverty and the pain caused by policies that have further impoverished them.”

However, he expressed hope that one day the country would recover if the people were allowed to take charge of their affairs.
