Omoloye Sowore’s Arc From A Political Rebel To A Politician

🕔06:51, 17.Aug 2018

My high school classmates asked me to “profile holistically the pedigree of this man Omoloye Sowore” and why Nigerians should stand with him in 2019. Justifiably, like millions of Nigerians, they are skeptical of politicians. Experience has taught Nigerians to see politics as a crooked business.
