Nigerians Suffering In Midst Of Plenty – Abure

Abure said that Nigerians have continued to wallow in abject poverty due to leadership ineptitude.



Suspended LP Treasurer Condemns Abure’s Re-Election

The National Chairman of the Labour Party, Julius Abure, has said that although Nigerians are living amid plenty, they are still suffering, News About Nigeria reports.

He stated this while speaking after a critical meeting of the National Working Committee NWC members of LP, with Gov. Alex Otti, in Umuahia, Abia State.

He decried the precarious situation in Nigeria following the removal of fuel subsidy by the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led government.

He further noted that Nigerians have continued to wallow in abject poverty due to leadership ineptitude.

“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, everything else will be fixed.

“Today, you can see that Nigeria is not moving as it should. A bag of rice sells for N120,000, while the minimum wage is N30,000. A tuber of yam that was 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 the APC government.” He lamented.

He, however, assured the people that the Labour Party would not relent in its push for a better Nigeria until it eventually got the people’s mandate to provide quality leadership for the country.

“We will not rest until we can take over government and provide the people with quality leadership that will work for the country.

“We will provide a leadership that will fight poverty and fight hunger; a leadership that will empathise with the people and liberate them,” he added.
