The Labour Party has expressed regret about the situation of the country under President Muhammadu Buhari’s rule.
The National Chairman of LP, Julius Abure, voiced concern over the ongoing wave of insecurity throughout the nation on Wednesday while speaking at a gathering in Akure, the capital of Ondo.
“Nigeria is already comatose under this president (Buhari). The security situation is even more alarming as we heard cases of kidnapping every day in this country,” Mr Abure said while addressing scores of LP supporters.
The party leader observed that the Buhari administration is implicated in the recent wave of violence across the nation and the murder of innocent people by armed bandits while being represented at the event by his deputy, Lamidi Bashiru.
The All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party, he noted, had both been in office when Nigerians put them to the test, and both had failed the country’s citizens.
He claimed that Peter Obi, the LP’s presidential candidate, entered the contest to help the nation’s struggling economy.
“Now, we need someone who can help us to rescue this country and the only person is Mr Peter Obi, our candidate for the 2023 presidential election and in the Labour Party.
“We are very much focused. So, we should make sure that we vote for LP. Let us protect and guard our votes so that they will not steal it,” Mr Abure said.
He continued by advising LP members in Ondo to keep mobilizing for Mr. Obi’s presidential aspirations.
