You Are Bound To Fail — Labour Party Knocks Tinubu For Asking Opposition Governors To Nominate Board Members

Posted by Thandiubani on Thu 13th Jul, 2023 - tori.ng

LP was reacting after Tinubu asked the governors to nominate competent persons to serve in the boards and parastatals of Federal Government agencies which were dissolved last month.

 
The Labour Party (LP) has slammed President Bola Ahmed Tinubu for giving opposition governors, including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), LP and others slots to nominate individuals for ministerial and board appointments.
 
LP said the move is an attempt to legitimize his stolen mandate, but it will fail.
 
Recall that the Chairman of the Nigeria Governors Forum, Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State had disclosed at a meeting of the forum that Tinubu asked the governors to nominate competent persons to serve in the boards and parastatals of Federal Government agencies which were dissolved last month.
 
Reacting to the report on Thursday, the National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Obiora Ifoh, stated that the LP, its members and Presidential candidate, Peter Obi, have their eyes on the ball and won’t be swayed by Tinubu’s offer.
 
He told Vanguard, “We are not unaware of the subtle moves by the APC and President Tinubu to break our ranks using all kinds of gimmicks to try to break our resolve to retrieve the mandate freely given to Peter Obi and his running mate, Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed on February 25, 2023.

“We will not be swayed or distracted from our goal which is to retrieve our stolen mandate that is why we are before the Tribunal and have provided the necessary documents and arguments to buttress our case.

“I can assure you that the majority of Nigerians are with us and have seen through all of the desperate attempts by the APC to legitimize what it is fully aware is a stolen mandate.”
