Mr Peter Obi, former Anambra State Governor and the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, has reacted to comments made by his All Progressives Congress counterpart, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, during the APC’s mega rally in Osun State this week.
During the ruling party’s mega rally in Osun, the former Lagos state governor hit out at the Labour Party and some other parties, describing them as mushroom parties.
In his words in Yoruba:
“PDP and mushroom parties. Like Labour party; they say they are labour, they will labour till death.”
“God will not let you become labourers,” he told the crowd of supporters. “You will meet good fortune at home. The good fortune of money, children. You are next.”
Responding to this, the Labour Party presidential candidate during a rally organised by the LP in Osun on Wednesday, said Tinubu spoke ill of his party out of hatred, adding that the Labour Party will respond with love.
“I listened to our national chairman when he said that somebody said that they can labour till death. When they talk like that, when they show you hatred, Labour Party will show them, love. There is dignity in labour,” he said.
He, however, called on Osun residents to vote for the LP’s governorship candidate, Yusuf Lasun, adding that with the party the better welfare for citizens of the state is guaranteed.
According to him, Labour party is determined to change Nigeria, insisting that the way to change Africa’s most populous country is by removing people responsible for its current state.
Also speaking during the rally, Labour Party National Chairman, Julius Abure, urged Osun electorates not to sell their votes on Saturday.
He told them to resist the temptation of collecting money during the governorship election or to collect the money and still vote against them.
