Sowore to sue Channels TV boss for excluding him from Presidential debate

The African Action Congress has written a letter to the Chairman of Channels Television, Mr. John Momoh, threatening to sue him, the Broadcast Organisation of Nigeria and the Nigeria Elections Debate Group if its Presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, is not listed among those that will participate in the Presidential debate.

The NEDG, organisers of the presidential debate in collaboration with the BON, had revealed that it selected five candidates on “character, conduct and other things of the candidates”.

Those invited include: President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party; and a former Minister of Education, Mrs.Oby Ezekwesili of the Allied Congress Party of Nigeria.

The two others invited include: the Presidential candidate of the Alliance for New Nigeria, Fela Durotoye; and Young Progressives Party candidate, Kingsley Moghalu.

However, in a letter signed by the National Legal Adviser of the AAC, Mr. Inibehe Effiong, the party described the exclusion of Sowore as a breach of Section 100 of the Electoral Act which states that all political parties be given fair representation and media exposure.

The party said if Sowore was not included, the AAC would go to court to stop the event from holding.
