President Tinubu, you’re to reduce poverty, not to escalate it – Labour Party

The Labour Party has expressed unhappiness with President Bola Tinubu’s comments, which it termed as mocking Nigerians as impoverished.

Obiora Ifoh, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, added that the President should be reminded that he was elected to decrease, if not eradicate, poverty, rather than exacerbate it.

He responded to President Tinubu’s claim that Nigerians were not the only ones suffering from poverty.

According to him:

“We are disappointed but not surprised by the comments made by President Ahmed Bola Tinubu about the excruciating poverty his administration’s policies have unleashed on Nigerians since he took office over a year ago.

“It was to say the least disheartening to hear Mr. President mock his citizens by saying Nigerians are not the only ones facing poverty.

“Assuming but not conceding that what he said is true, Nigerians who are at the receiving end of his harsh economic policies don’t need to be reminded about the pain and hunger they have been forced to live with by the very people who put them in that situation in the first place.

“May be this administration needs to be reminded that it was elected to reduce if not eliminate poverty, hunger and disease but what we have seen is an obsession with opulence.

“We are yet to get over the billions appropriated for the renovation of the President and Vice President’s lodges, now we hear they want new jets to join the Presidential fleet.”
