We Will Not Rest Until LP Takes Over Govt And Provide Quality Leadership – Abure



The National Chairman of the Labour Party, LP, Julius Abure has vowed to ensure the party takes over power in Nigeria and provide quality leadership.

He spoke while addressing journalists in Umuahia, Abia State, following a meeting with Governor Alex Otti and members of the National Working Committee (NWC) of LP.

He said, “We will not rest until we are able to take over government and provide the people quality leadership that will work for the country.

“How do you reconcile a situation where we export crude oil only to import refined products at high costs. Nigeria’s problem is bad leadership, and once we get it right, every other thing will be fixed.

“Today, you can see that Nigeria is not moving as it should. A bag of rice sells for N120, 000 while minimum wage is N30,000. A tuber of yam that previously sold for N500 is now N1200.

“Life has become very difficult in Nigeria; security challenges are enormous; inflation is very high; unemployment is increasing, and people now find it increasingly difficult to feed. This is the reality in Nigeria today under APC Government.

“We will provide a leadership that will fight poverty and fight hunger; a leadership that will empathize with the people and liberate them.”
