Presidential candidate of the African Action Congress Omoyele Sowore has threatened to sue the Broadcasting Organisation of Nigeria for excluding his name on the presidential debate.

In a letter written to BON Chairman John Momoh through the party’s attorney, Inibehe Effiong, sowore said he will take legal actions for the exemption of his name on the list of candidates for the presidential debate.

According to reports,  the decision to leave Sowore out from the debate is unconstitutional as the Section 2, paragraph 1.1.4 of the Nigerian Media Code of Election Coverage adopted by BON and seven other media organizations on the 30th day of October states that; “A broadcast medium shall strive to ensure the participation of all parties and candidates contesting elections in political debates.”
