Peter Obi Mocks PDP, APC, Says Your Only Structure Is Stomach Infrastructure
Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi has described the political structures of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as ‘stomach infrastructure that has brought more hardship for millions of Nigerians in the last two decades.
Obi said this during an address at the LP Coalition for Peter Obi (CPO) Summit at the International Conference Centre, Abuja, on Thursday.
“The current structures of both the PDP and the APC are the stomach infrastructure that has brought us nothing but suffering,” Obi explained. “Their understanding of structure is sharing of Nigeria’s patrimony to vested interests and influence peddlers. That is against what Peter Obi represents; that is against what Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed represents; and it is indeed, against the vision of the Labour Party.”
Obi said his structure is the100 million poor Nigerians who will come out on election day to fight for their future.
“It is the 33% unemployed Nigerians who already know who kept them unemployed; our structure is indeed the parents of 18.5m out-of-school-children in Nigeria, who will strive to ensure that such affliction does not visit them a second time,” Obi said.
“Our structure is everyone seated in this hall today! Yes, we have structure, and we are ready to move mountains to save Nigeria.
“Since I entered the presidential race my mantra has been consistent and in tandem with the Labour Party’s vision, which mainly seeks to ensure economic transformation through job-led growth.
“Therefore, my decision to join the Labour Party was not by coincidence or happenstance; it was indeed a thought-through decision given the ideological convergence.”
