Former APC national chairman comrade Adams Oshiomhole made claims that the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Mr. Peter Obi is responsible for the high unemployment rate in Nigeria.
The former Edo governor made the statement during the flag-off of his Senatorial campaign in Auchi, Edo State. He claimed Obi contributed to the employment rate in Nigeria by importing finished goods.
“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.
In the last quarter of 2020, the unemployment rate in Nigeria was at 33 percent.
However, Obi’s campaign has always centred on production economy.
