He said this at the National Headquarters of the Labour Party (LP) in Abuja, when he received his certificate of return, as the presidential candidate of the Party, from the National Chairman, Barr. Julius Abure, in the presence of other stakeholders representing the Nigerian Labour Congress and the Trade Union Congress among others.
There are two major political parties in Nigeria, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) both of which are fielding Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Atiku Abubakar respectively as their standard flag bearers for the 2023 presidential election.
The Labour Party Presidential Candidate who addressed other aspirants and supporters at the party headquarters in Abuja said “whenever I hear of no structure, my answer to it, is simple. The 100 million Nigerians living in poverty will be the structure.
“The 35 million Nigerian youths who don’t know where the next meal will come from will be the structure; the elderly, the mothers and fathers, the old ones that are dying or being owed gratuity and pension, will be the structure.
“Members of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the lecturers who are being owed, the students that are not in school will be the structure; it is all about the structures of a human being.”
The former Anambra state governor pointed out that the Anambra State University is not on strike because the impact of N5bn he allocated as support to the school has provided some infrastructure and other needs of the school leading them to ignore the ongoing strike.
