Oshiomhole blames Peter Obi for unemployment in Nigeria
Former Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole, has blamed the candidate of the Labour Party in Nigeria, Mr. Peter Obi, for the unemployment in the country.
Oshiomhole, a former governor of Edo State, made the statement during the flagging off of his campaign on Friday in Edo North, Auchi.
The sacked APC Chairman said he blamed Obi as an importer of finished goods.
Oshiomhole said, "Obi owns the biggest shopping mall in Abuja, and all the items sold there are imported, so if he is selling imported wines, clothes, and other items, he is contributing to why Nigeria is going down because he is creating jobs abroad and importing unemployment to Nigeria.
Under the current administration of the All Progressives Congress, the unemployment rate in the country stood at 33 percent, the cost of living is at an all-time high, and the President, Muhammadu Buhari, said he had done his best.
Mr. Obi, a former governor of Anambra state and a serial businessman, made his morning from importing consumable items, including beverages.
On Friday, Obi visited Auchi, Mr. Oshiomhole's town, where he appealed to traditional rulers, Aliru Momoh, the Otaru of Auchi, to support his candidacy.
Supporters of Mr. Obi, in thousands, filled the street with placards and chants.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
