Renowned social critic and presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has taken aim at a group of former governors known as the G-5. Sowore, known for his outspokenness, ridiculed these politicians who recently visited President Bola Tinubu at the Presidential Villa in Abuja. In a scathing series of tweets, Sowore labeled them as “G-String hustlers united” and highlighted their supposed degradation from influential G-5 governors to “perforated G-String ex-governors.” Let’s delve into the details of this political controversy.

Sowore Mocks Former G-5 Governors as They Transition from Power to “G-String Hustlers United

The meeting between a group of former governors, popularly known as the G-5, and President Bola Tinubu has sparked a sharp response from Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress. In a series of tweets, Sowore mocked the governors for their perceived transition from power to “G-String hustlers united.”

Sowore spared no criticism as he singled out Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, and Governor Okezie Ikpeazu of Abia State. According to Sowore, these former governors have degraded themselves from influential G-5 governors to “perforated G-String ex-governors.” Governor Seyi Makinde of Oyo State, who won a second term election, was exempted from Sowore’s scathing remarks.

The social critic expressed his disdain for the G-5 governors’ visit to President Bola Tinubu, claiming that it showcased their self-centered interests rather than a genuine commitment to the welfare of their constituents. Sowore’s tweets highlight his belief that the former governors have abandoned their principles and transformed into mere “Hustlers United.”

Sowore specifically targeted Governor Nyesom Wike, questioning the sincerity of his governance and referring to his “wicked and corrupt existence.” He did not spare Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, whom he labeled as “Isi-Slippers,” alluding to the governor’s alleged inability to address critical issues in Abia State. Furthermore, Sowore criticized Governor Samuel Ortom, accusing him of using the “Fulani” issue as an excuse for his lackluster performance, including the failure to pay workers’ salaries.

It is worth noting that during the general elections, the G-5 governors refused to work for their political party and its presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, as they demanded the resignation of the party’s national chairman, Senator Iyorchia Ayu. Sowore’s tweets suggest that their recent meeting with President Tinubu indicates their desperation to secure appointments in the new administration.

The controversy surrounding the G-5 governors’ meeting with Tinubu has fueled speculation and drawn attention to the shifting dynamics within Nigerian politics. While some see it as a calculated move to ensure political relevance, others view it as a betrayal of the principles upon which these governors were elected.

In conclusion, Omoyele Sowore’s scathing criticism of the former G-5 governors and their visit to President Bola Tinubu has sparked a heated political debate. Sowore’s tweets, labeling them as “G-String hustlers united,” reflect his perception of their transition from powerful G-5 governors to “perforated G-String ex-governors.” This development underscores the evolving landscape of Nigerian politics, where alliances and loyalties are continually tested. As the political scene unfolds, it remains to be seen how these actions will shape the future of these politicians and their impact on the nation.
