A group supporting the Labor Party (LP) presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi, has attacked the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) for using the seat of national power as an election campaign venue.
In a statement on Wednesday, the group under the Greater Nigeria4Obi-Datti umbrella in Awka, Anambra State described the use of the seat of national power for the inauguration of the presidential campaign team of the Tinubu/Shettima women as an insult to Nigerians. .
“We at Great Nigeria4Obi-Datti totally condemn the frivolity known as the Inauguration of the Tinubu/Shettima Women’s Presidential Campaign Team held on Monday 10th October 2022 at the State House Conference Center in Abuja. We condemn the continued use and abuse of our common trust to defraud the Nigerian people. The All Progressives Congress (APC) has openly continued to party as Nigeria burns. We must remind the APC party and their top brass of their massive indifference to the scarcity in the country.
“That while ASUU is on strike and our children are out of school, parents/workers are not being paid, new jobs remain unavailable, insecurity everywhere, food prices and the Inflation is rising exponentially, Nigeria is haemorrhaging workers to foreign lands and our currency is losing its value, but the top brass of the APC have found a way to continue the Ariya, spending millions of naira full of troops, d matching uniforms, banners, colorful decor, chandeliers, dancing, music, food, ushers, powerful security to hold a women’s jamboree at Aso Rock. What indifference to the suffering masses in Nigeria! The apple certainly rots from above.
“Ariya’s jamboree must end. At Great Nigeria4Obi-Datti, we call for a commitment to the issues that matter to ordinary Nigerians, including attention to education, job creation, payment of Salaries and security. APC must go! Probity is everything. Nigerians must sweep the APC with their own broom. A call for accountability is needed. Stop Frivolity! We have taken a stand “, said the group.
