Presidency: Blame Peter Obi for unemployment in Nigeria – Oshiomhole

2 weeks ago

The Labour Party, LP, residential candidate, Peter Obi, has been accused of contributing to the high unemployment rate in Nigeria.

Former Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, said Obi contributed to Nigeria’s unemployment by importing finished goods.

The All Progressives Congress, APC, senatorial candidate for Edo North, made the assertion during the flag-off of his campaign in the Auchi area of the State over the weekend.

“Obi owns the biggest shopping mall in Abuja and all the items sold there are imported.

“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,” Oshiomhole said.

Statistics have shown that Nigeria’s unemployment rate stood at 33 percent as of the last quarter of 2020.

Most Nigerians and experts had blamed the APC for the high rate of unemployment in the country.

Following his emergence as LP presidential candidate, Obi had anchored his campaign on ensuring Nigeria becomes a production economy.
