The Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore has said he was not intimidated by the moneybag politicians and as such would not jettison his presidential ambition.

According to NAN, Sowore made the strong submission in an interview on Saturday in Lagos.

The presidential hopeful said that the mandate which he was pursuing was sacrosanct to the development of the constituency he represents, therefore, adoption of a consensus candidate by political parties won’t deter him.

“I have a passion to fix Nigeria which has been there since I was younger. I am working on how this country can achieve the desired greatness.

“I am propelled by the appalling situation of this country that in spite of its abundance, we have yet to achieve anything; the older generation has failed the country.

“I am aware of some presidential candidates stepping down or the coalition of political parties having a consensus candidate. I won’t step down for anybody.

“I am not stepping down for any candidate because we don’t have anything in common. We are in the injury time before the election, so no stepping down,’’ he affirmed.

Sowore said he was not scared, adding that his desire to fix Nigeria was the driving force of his presidential ambition.

“I am not scared of Nigeria’s political terrain. If the military dictatorship did not scare me, I can’t be scared off when we are in democracy though not in the right concept.

“I am not scared of the moneybag politicians; not scared of acceptance from Nigeria because I have travelled all over the country, including 34 states of the federation and Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

“I fully understand the terrain and I have what it takes to take Nigeria to the desired promise land. I don’t want to be bogged down by any political arrangement. “I have been part of the political process in the country and my mission is to rescue Nigeria.”
