The 2019 ambition of Omoyele Sowore suffered setback on Wednesday after GoFundMe suspended his bid to raise $2million towards his ‘Take Back Nigeria Movement’.
the Sahara Reporters publisher on Wednesday night said he could not immediately say why the crowdfunding platform suspended his account, but said he would not be discouraged. “I woke up this morning and got an e-mail saying saying they’ve suspended the campaign."

He said the request was most likely due to the popularity that his campaign had garnered from those supporting his presidential ambition online. But the campaign also elicited resentment amongst his antagonists, especially for its apparent success within the early hours of registration. “I think they started reporting us as soon as we opened it and they saw we made $1,000 in one hour."

Mr. Sowore, who lives in New York from where he runs Sahara Reporters, first unveiled his presidential ambition during one of his regular visits to Nigeria last month. "There is no going back!” He said in a Facebook update informing his followers of the development shortly after 11:00 a.m. Wednesday.
