2 mins read

The Labour Party (LP) has warned the All Progressives Congress, (APC) to stop embarrassing Nigeria over the final report of European Union Observer Mission on the 2023 General Elections.

Acting National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Obiora Ifoh, described the protests which he noted was embarked upon by hirelings as embarrassing and uncalled for.

He said this in a statement issued in Abuja, late on Friday.

He said the LP’s attention was drawn to the protest held by “hirelings at the premises of the European Union Mission in Abuja.

According to him, the LP “views such protestation as a huge national embarrassment as it shows how antithetical the party is to truth and measures that will grow and strengthen Nigeria’s democracy.

“The protesters were demanding that the EU should withdraw its final report on Nigeria’s 2023 general election held on 25 February and 18 March 2023, because as they claimed, the report was capable of setting the country on fire.

“Labour Party finds it counter-intuitive, awkward and very difficult to comprehend that if after the electoral brigandage of the APC in cahoot with the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC), on February 25, Nigeria did not go on fire because of the non-violence disposition of our standard bearer, Peter Obi, it is now that APC thinks the stark truth coming from an unbiased independent body like the EU will set Nigeria on fire.

“What the Labour Party expected the APC to do is to lavishly appreciate the European Union for their continued yeoman contributions to the growth of democracy in our country through needs assessment missions and consequent financial, technical, and logistical support, which the 94-page report further underscores.

“The APC government should have done even standing in their epileptic’s position is to borrow a leave from late President Umaru Yar’Adua, who in 2007, after winning the Presidential election perceived by international observers as not sufficiently credible, accepted to make amends by promising to reform the electoral system.”
