0

The Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 General Election, Mr. Peter Obi has asserted that the violent protest and looting that happened at the Wuse Market on Tuesday in Abuja, was a manifestation of frustration due to the current economic hardship in the country.

Mr. Obi who made this assertion in a tweet posted on his X platform on Friday noted that “while acts of violence and destruction are never justified, they are often symptomatic of deeper social and economic grievances that must be addressed through meaningful dialogue and purposeful action”.

“The recent looting and arson that occurred at Wuse main Market in Abuja during the week, are a clear manifestation of the frustration and desperation felt by many Nigerians who have been left behind by a system that prioritizes the interests of the few over the needs of the many”, Obi added.

He, therefore, called on the government to urgently address the pressing issues with the seriousness and urgency they deserve.

Mr. Obi, however, suggested that the issues could be addressed by implementing policies that promote economic opportunity and social justice, strengthening law enforcement and security agencies to combat crime effectively, and fostering a culture of accountability and transparency in governance.

He further urged all stakeholders, including civil society organizations, religious leaders, and the international community, to come together in solidarity to support efforts aimed at addressing the root causes of these challenges and building a more just and equitable society for all Nigerians.

Obi advised Nigerians to set aside partisan differences and work towards common solutions that benefit the entire nation.

According to him, “the future of Nigeria depends on our ability to rise above adversity and build a society where every citizen can live with dignity, security, and hope for a better tomorrow”.
