President candidate of the Labour party,Peter Obi, on Wednesday, reacted to his counterpart, APC candidate, Bola Tinubu’s comment about their party, which the party and its members considered derogatory.
Obi responded on in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, at a mega rally to support the governorship candidate of his party, Lasun Yusuff.
The former Anambra Governor said “When they show you hatred, Labour Party will show them love. There is dignity in labor.”
Recall that Tinubu, at the grand rally for the re-election of APC candidate, Adegboyega Oyetola, on Tuesday, had said: “They said some are in Labour, they will remain laborers 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.
“Tinubu’s unguarded utterances represent what Nigerians don’t need right now…how can a presidential candidate be so unruly as to use such word as death for another party?…. Nigerians obviously are beginning to wake” he said.
