Peter Obi who is the Labour Party (LP), Presidential Candidate, while reacting to the crises bedevilling the country has stated that Nigeria is actually suffering from bad leadership, and there might be a cascade of crisis in the country soon.
Peter Obi had stated this on Tuesday during a visit to the leadership of the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress (TUC) in Abuja. The former Anambra governor called for a change from the sharing formula to the production formula, adding that Nigeria is not a producing country.
“Nigeria is not a producing country. The cumulative effect of what we’re suffering today is bad leadership,” Obi said.
“It’s a leadership that concentrates on sharing. We have to move from sharing formula to production formula.
“All our young people in their productive age aren’t doing anything, so we’re going to have a crisis.”
In a fresh show of support, the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and the Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) had also openly thrown their weight behind the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi and his campaign manifesto as they declare him the right man for the job.
The NLC and the TUC had made the pledges in some separate addresses on Tuesday in Abuja.
Mr Ayuba Wabba who is the NLC President,while speaking during the 10th Memorial Lecture in honour late Pascal Bafya, had reiterated that the NLC is solidly behind Obi and will mobilise to ensure the victory of the Labour Party in 2023 general elections.
He also made a note of the fact that the Labour party must dive fully into politics and work hard to support candidates whose mantra will make life better for their members and Nigerians at large.
Mr Quadri Olaleye, who is the president of the TUC on the other hand mentioned that “Obi is a face among the presidential candidates that all labour unions are pleased and are ready to work with.”
