The Sowore group seeking recognition as original owners of the party whereas INEC has already recognised the Ezenwa led group.
Speaking with the representative of the party on Monday, Sowore accused INEC of imposing leadership on the party which he claimed was formed by him in 2018.
“I was the one who registered this party in 2018, I collected the certificate it is still with me in your office at the conference room.
“You now see the party viable to give to another person because this is what you used to do, and nobody challenges you. When we went to court, the people who are involved did not do anything,” he said.
The former presidential candidate also accused INEC and the Federal Government of meddling in the activities of the party.
“Let us not forget that it is not only INEC that is engaged in corruption and fraud, our security agencies are also involved in the rigging of election and fraud, particularly our friends at the DSS.
“The army, police are always involved in the rigging of elections, so our conversation is only about INEC,” Sowore said.
Mr. Sowore noted that his party is the only revolutionary party in Nigeria, which is why the government is trying to silence the party by imposing people who will do their bidding as again at the vision of the party.
He also disclosed that five members of his faction who had arrived at the venue of the protest were said to have been arrested by security personnel.
Sowore demanded for the immediate release of those apprehended just as the faction presented a representative of INEC with its letter of protest, giving the electoral body seven days ultimatum to address their concerns.
There was however drama when another faction of the AAC led by Leonard Ezenwa arrived at the scene of the protest, carrying placards.
A faction of Leonard Ezenwa carry banners with inscriptions saying Sowore was expelled from the party despite being the founder.
The group was chanting against the Sowore faction, a development that led to the groups exchanging words and engaging in a brawl.
Ezenwa said that Sowore has been expelled from the party due to anti-party activities he has engaged in. He also accused Sowore of siphoning the party’s fund.
