Laolu Akande, a former assistant to former Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, called the ongoing organized labor strike in the country a diversion.
President Bola Tinubu should address the problems that caused the strike, according to Akande, since Nigerians don’t need any more distractions.
According to him, Nigeria’s fiscal difficulties and the suffering that its citizens face are more pressing than the current strike.
During his appearance on Politics Today on Channels Television, Akande urged Tinubu to put an end to the country’s issues, which he claimed were made worse by the nationwide strike that started on Tuesday.
“We need to address Mr. President and say, ‘Look, Mr. President, fix this,’ because he has stated that the money stops at his table,” Akande remarked. This is not the distraction we need.
“The country faces more pressing issues to address. A nationwide strike is the last thing that people want to cope with when they are already suffering. This strike is unnecessary, and I think it can be resolved as soon as feasible. This doesn’t seem like a huge issue to me.
This is the kind of thing we must do. We need the President to take immediate action and resolve this matter; he is capable of doing so with great speed. We cannot afford any more delays. President, please solve this.
This is something that a single phone call can resolve. The Labour leaders would rush into the Villa whenever they received a call from the Villa.
