LP Lampoons FG For Recognizing Factional Academic Union

ABEOKUTA – The Labour Party has condemned the federal government decision for registering and recognizing another faction in the academic environment with the Certificate of Incorporation issued to Congress of University Academic (CONUA).

LP in a statement signed by its National Publicity secretary, Comrade Arabambi Abayomi Oluwafemi says the move spearheaded by the Minister of Labour and Productivity, Dr. Chris Ngige was an ill wind that will bring no good to the Academic Community.

Comrade Arabambi advised the federal government to explore ways of returning Students back to school rather than creating more crises.

According to him, it is sad to note that those who benefited from scholarship at the expense of Nigeria are now the one making education elusive to the masses forgetting that the monster they are creating today will consume them tomorrow.

While sympathizing with the students and their parents, Labour Party appealed to both the ASUU and the federal government to close ranks and work out an agreeable solution to the lingering crisis.

On the proposed budget for the 2023, Comrade Arabambi Abayomi faulted the proposed N19.76 trillion expenditure which the federal government is proposing to borrow N11 trillion naira describing it as a bad decision.

According to him, the debts burden of Nigeria as at present is huge going by the disclosure from the federal government which claims that debt services are more than the country’s revenue.

To this end, the Labour Party wonders how the federal government intends to manage the new proposal without affecting the already battered economy which has pauperized Nigerians and has ruined the economy both for the starters and the big players.

He wants the federal government to look inward, and put up their thinking caps to save the nation pending the time they will be kicked out of office through ballots next year to pave way for Peter Obi/Datti’s Presidential mandate.

The Labor Party says its Candidate Peter Obi has what it takes to rule the country with a more result-oriented and humane approach.

He expressed confidence that with the growing acceptance of Peter Obi, the journey to the Villa is a done deal as the party currently with over 40million membership strength drawn across the Nigeria Labour Congress, the Trade Union Congress, affiliated trade unions, professional bodies, students and other old members.

“The current Buhari-led APC administration should prepare compressive handover notes for smooth running of Nigeria to come May 29, 2023, with Peter Obi as president.
