Before his emergence at the convention, Mr Sowore, announced his decision to step down as the AAC chairman, a position he recently earned through a court judgement.

An Appeal Court in Abuja, last Thursday, upheld him as the substantive chairman of the party after several months of legal tussles with the Leonard Ezenwa-led faction of the party.

A Federal High Court in Abuja had earlier approved the suspension and eventual sack of Mr Sowore as the AAC’s national chairman.
