On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, Sowore, who had already joined the race in 2019, announced this in a post on his verified Facebook profile.

The announcement was printed on a flyer, “Good morning and happy new month! #WeCantContinueLikeThis

Sowore is slated to run on the African Action Congress platform, according to SaharaReporters (AAC).

Sowore had previously stated that he will declare his candidacy for president in 2023 in March, accusing President Muhammadu Buhari’s government of detaining him and filing new accusations against him.

Last Thursday, February 24, 2022, a squad of armed policemen besieged the door to the Court of Appeal in Abuja and detained Sowore on the basis of a spurious petition filed by a former member of the House of Representatives, Ned Nwoko.

He was brought to the now-defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) facility in Guzape, also known as Abattoir.

After his release, the activist expressed optimism about becoming the country’s future president and said that he was not being threatened by anyone.

“They took me to their detention when they were tired; they came and call me that I should be going home.

“So I’m heading home now, no reason to worry, we know why this is happening, they are afraid of the future, they are afraid Sowore will declare very soon and become the president of Nigeria; you can’t stop me”, he said in a post on his social media handle.

On Tuesday, Sowore also tweeted that he will be openly announcing his candidacy at the Women Development Centre in Abuja.

Sowore ran for President of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the 2019 election, but was defeated by President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
