News Africa : What Sowore discussed with Ex-Ghana President, Jerry Rawlings

What Sowore discussed with Ex-Ghana President, Jerry Rawlings
Presidential aspirant, Omoyele Sowore during a closed door meeting with former Head of State and President of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings in Accra, Ghana, asked him if the reason young generations are not in power was due to money politics, to which he responded that, Nigerians are still in love with their ‘oppressors.’
Ths was contained in a statement by the Director, PR, Media and Communications of the Sowore 2019 Campaign Organization, Rachel Onamusi-Kpiaisi, who noted that both men spoke on a wide range of issues that bordered on youth and leadership in Africa, and about corruption and effective solutions to the menace.

The statement reads in part: “It was a closed-door meeting, but one of the things that came out of it was that Rawlings said, ‘Chief, you know your generation should be the ones in power but there is huge problem, things are gonna be tight!’

“Sowore quickly interrupted, asking if it was about ‘money politics’, after which Rawlings took a deep breath and after a long drawn silence, stated: ‘You know, Nigerians are still in love with their oppressors.’
“If there is a reason that our leaders buy up luxurious apartments and send their children to school in Ghana, it is thanks in no small part to the tireless, uncompromising work of JJ Rawlings.”
It added that before leaving Accra, Sowore also held a town hall session with Ghana-based Nigerians.
