There Is Dignity In Labor” Give Your State Better Leadership- Peter Obi Replies Tinubu Derogatory Statement
The Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi, Nigeria can only change when outgoing leaders are removed from office.
Peter Obi, on Wednesday, while reacting to comments made by the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu’s about their party, which the party and its members considered derogatory.
Obi made the remark in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, at a mega rally to support the governorship candidate of the party, Lasun Yusuff.
He said: “I listened to our chairman when he said that somebody said ‘they can labor till death’. “When they show you hatred, Labour Party will show them love. There is dignity in labor.”
Recall that Tinubu, at the grand rally for the re-election of APC candidate, Adegboyega Oyetola, on Tuesday, had said: “They said some are in Labour, they will remain laborers till death.”
He also called on the people of Osun to support the party’s candidate in the governorship poll to give the state better leadership. Similarly, the LP’s candidate, Lasun lambasted Tinubu, saying his comment about the Labour Party by the APC leader was inconsistent with the attributes of a virtuous Yoruba man.
At the party’s large-scale gathering on Wednesday in Osogbo, Obi made this statement. Only a vote for Alhaji Lasun Yusuf, according to the presidential contender, could free the state’s citizens from misery and poverty.
“We want to change Nigeria and the only way we can change this nation is to remove all these people who have put Nigeria where it is for the past 23 years. This is the time for them to go.”Obi noted that if the party wins the governorship election on Saturday, their children will have jobs and also prompt payment of worker’ pension and salaries.
“Vote for Labour party so that your children can have jobs. Vote for people that will work for you.
“Vote for Labour party, vote for the future of your children. Vote for the candidate that will be committed to a better Osun state,” Obi said.
