The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore has confronted the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) Kashim Shettima for representing the party’s flag bearer Bola Tinubu, who was conspicuously missing on Thursday as the presidential candidates signed the peace pact ahead of the 2023 election.

Naija News reported that Kashim Shettima, represented Tinubu at the occasion which was organised by the National Peace Committee and saw the attendance of Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP), and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) amongst others at the signing.

However, the video sighted by this publication, captured the moment Sowore confronted Shettima for taking Tinubu’s place at the Presidential “Peace Accord” signing in Abuja.

According to the AAC flag bearer, he had questioned the APC vice presidential candidate on the reasons why he was seated in place of its presidential candidate despite his absence from the peace accord signing.

He further noted that if he was already seated, he wouldn’t get up for Shettima, as the seat was originally preserved for presidential candidates and not for VPs.

Sowore also challenged former Chief Security Officer to late head of state, Gen. Sani Abacha, Major Hamza al-Mustapha, who is a presidential candidate at the peace signing.
