Sahara Reporters Publisher Omoyele Sowore has called out Senate President Bukola Saraki after GoFundMe suspended his fundraising campaign.
Sowore had earlier announced his intention to run for president in 2019.
He had opened a GoFundMe account to help with raising funds for the campaign, setting $2 million as his goal.
His account was however suspended after raising just $2,108.
Sowore took to his Facebook to announce that his team received an alert from GoFundMe that his fundraising efforts have been suspended. He wrote:
GoFundMe Just Alerted Us To The Suspension Of Our Fundraising Efforts On Their Platform! Apparently, our opponents have panicked and massively reported the fundraising effort considering how successful it was. There is no going back!
In a later post, Sowore said he learned that a “Kwara thief who leads the Nigerian Senate” was responsible for the suspension. He wrote:
It just came to my notice that the Kwara thief who leads the Nigerian Senate and his apprentices were behind the reporting of our GoFundMe fundraising as “Fraud”. We learned he panicked soon as he saw that Nigerians were supporting our Revolutionary Movement.
This Act In Itself Will Not Delay His Day Of Judgement
