The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, on Wednesday descended on the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, over a 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 that ‘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 reelection 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.
