    2023: What Peter Obi, Lasun Yusuf Said About Tinubu’s Comment


    Jul 13, 2022

    The presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, has replied to comments made by the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, in Osogbo, the Osun state capital.

    Recall that Tinubu had on Tuesday during the grand rally for the reelection of the APC governorshhip candidate, Governor Adegboyega Oyetola, said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP) would labour till they die.

    Tinubu had said, “I ask you to please do the same thing you did in Ekiti. Come out with your PVCs and vote massively for APC.

    “The voting is now in your hand. Be very vigilant. Be watchful. You will not do it in vain.

    “Think about your children and vote accordingly so you can see the future. Come out en masse. Don’t mind PDP and other mushroom parties, parties like Labour; they will labour till they die. God will not make you labourers.”

    Speaking on Wednesday during the campiagn rally for the LP governorship candidate, Yusuf Lasun, Obi asked party supporters to return hateful comments with love.

    Obi also called on the people of Osun to support the party’s candidate in the governorship poll to give the state better leadership.

    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.”

    Addressing the rally, Yusuff said the comment about the Labour Party by the APC leader was inconsistent with the attributes of a virtuous Yoruba man.

    He, however, promised to surprise those saying he would not get votes in Saturday’s election and urged LP members to work hard for victory at the poll.

    He came back yesterday and said we should go and labour till death. That is not an attribute of a virtuous Yoruba person. I described them as people with anonymous background, we don’t know them, their life is anonymous,” he said.
