The African Action Congress, AAC, Omoyele Sowore, has lamented over the inability of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, to participate in the 2023 Abuja Marathon.
Sowore also expressed disappointment with the absence of the Minister of Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Mohammed Bello, at the race.
The rights activist was one of the participants in the maiden edition of the Abuja International Marathon.
However, addressing journalists in Abuja, Sowore said: “This is the first Abuja marathon, I participated and I ran longer than I expected. I expected that the Minister of FCT would be here.
“I was even expecting Tinubu to be here, but apparently, I am the only presidential candidate standing after the election.
“I ran with kids, great kids. I am of the opinion that we are wasting a lot of talents in this country.”
Sowore pointed out that sports was an important tool towards uniting Nigerians and generating employment for the youths.
