Sowore, I personally do not think you have what it takes to be President – #DukeOfSomolu

Dear Mr. Sowore, thank you so much for joining our group. I personally do not think you have taken the right decision in wanting to be our President. You lack all basic qualifications and exposure required of such a high office. My thoughts are that you should kindly seek a more credible candidate like a Moghalu or Donald Duke and put your weight around them.  Then you would be given an appointment and from there, you begin to understand governance.

My brother, governance is not railing and ranting against the system. Better exposed and matured people have floundered when they were given the opportunity to leave criticism and serve – Wole Soyinka at FRSC and Tai Solarin at Peoples Bank to mention a few.

We are a big country with serious challenges – trillions of naira in infrastructural deficit, decay in vital sectors and an economy that needs to be reflated. This is not time for comedy. Millions of lives are dependent on this election.

What you are doing is distracting the opposition from building a viable platform to wrestle power from the powers that be.

So Mr. Sowore, I really think you should go back to your strategy room and pick a credible candidate and pray that he accepts your rash and abusive style and learn.

I repeat this is not a joke and you are joking with us.

This is a candid advise from the Duke of Somolu to Omoyele Sowore who just joined a political WhatsApp group.
