There’s dignity in labour, Peter Obi replies Tinubu

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, on Wednesday, has reacted to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu’s comment he made about their party, which the party and its members considered derogatory.

Obi made the remark in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, at a mega rally to support the governorship candidate of the party, Lasun Yusuff.

He said: “I listened to our chairman when he said that somebody said ‘they can labour till death’.

“When they show you hatred, Labour Party will show them love. There is dignity in labour.”

Recall that Tinubu, at the grand rally for the re-election of APC candidate, Adegboyega Oyetola, on Tuesday, had said: “They said some are in Labour, they will remain labourers till death.”

He also called on the people of Osun to support the party’s candidate in the governorship poll to give the state better leadership.

Similarly, the LP’s candidate, Lasun lambasted Tinubu, saying his comment about the Labour Party by the APC leader was inconsistent with the attributes of a virtuous Yoruba man.

Ahead of the July 16 governorship election in Osun State, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu had mocked Labour Party members, saying they will labour in vain till they die.

He made the remarks at the party’s mega rally in Osun on Tuesday.

He urged the people of Osun to come out massively and vote for APC.

Tinubu said: “I ask you to please do the same thing you did in Ekiti. Come out with your PVCs and vote massively for APC.

“The voting is now in your hand. Be very vigilant. Be watchful. You will not do it in vain.

“Think about your children and vote accordingly so you can see the future. Come out en masse. Don’t mind PDP and other mushroom parties — parties like Labour; they will labour till they die. God will not make you labourers.

“You’re next. We will be here till tomorrow. We will come back here for victory dance. Look at the trajectory of our lives. We make promises and fulfil them. We are the ones upholding the party, the Buhari party. Don’t answer the naysayers.”
