NLC, TUC Declare Support For Peter Obi To Become President

NLC and TUC made the pledge in separate addresses on Tuesday, June 28, 2022, in Abuja.

The NLC President, Mr Ayuba Wabba, speaking during the 10th Memorial Lecture in honour late Pascal Bafyau, said NLC is solidly behind Obi and will mobilise to ensure the victory of the Labour Party in 2023 general elections.

He noted that labour must dive fully into politics and work hard to support candidates whose mantra will make life better for their members and Nigerians at large.

TUC President, Mr Quadri Olaleye, on the other hand said that “Obi is a face among the presidential candidates that all labour unions are pleased and are ready to work with.”

Olaleye stated that the entire labour movement has accepted, adopted and will support, and ensure workers massively vote for Obi in the 2023 presidential elections.

”The Labour Party is stronger, one and formidable and the party has a widespread structure, as there is a worker and a members of either TUC and NLC in every family across Nigeria.”

In his remark, Obi said his visit to the leadership of the two labour centres was not to campaign, but a courtesy call to honour the organised labour on whose party and interest he is seeking Nigerians vote in the 2023 general elections.

The former governor of Anambra State said workers are the main stakeholders in the quest for economic development of any nation.

He said the reason the economy was lying almost prostrate today was because most of the loans being secured were being channeled towards consumption and unproductive ventures.

Obi also said that the reason the country’s revenue to GDP was low was because the country has remained unproductive.

Obi further said governance was all about the people, adding that as governor of Anambra state, he identified with the needs of the people.

Speaking on the harsh economic situation in the country, Obi’ said the way out was to return Nigeria to a productive nation.
