Sowore reacts to Peter Obi's trip to Egypt

Reacting to Obi’s tweet, Sowore stated that Obi’s trip to Egypt was a clear indication that the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate is unprepared.

He said:

“Heard that Peter Obi travelled to Egypt to learn on how to fix Education/Power problems. This is exactly the problem with unprepared candidates. It’s nine months to the election and a two-term governor and former vice presidential candidate wants to go and learn something from Egypt in three days. Wow!”

In another reaction to Obi's trip to Egypt, Sowore shared a video via his official Twitter handle of 733, 000 followers where he urged members of the Labour Party to join his party.

He described the Labour Party as where displayed politicians go to seek refuge after an unsuccessful political sojourn.

He said:

“The Labour Party has become an orphanage for politicians that are homeless. It didn’t take long before our man ran there when he became homeless.
“The Labour Party should not have in its company somebody who managed 13 months of workers’ strike in Anambra state. The reason Obi left PDP was that they outplayed him with transactional politicking. Where is the structure of the Labour Party? You should ask yourself.
“The Labour Party and the Peter Obi people should come and join us. We are the ones who know how to stand up for you."
