2023: "Nigeria must move forward, look beyond APC, PDP" - Osuntokun
The Labour Party chieftain urged Nigerians to sue for progress and change and overlook the current dispensation of political parties that have turned the country into ruins.
He stated that Nigeria needs a revival and a government that understands governance and what it means to be of service to the people.
“The kind of politics in Nigeria is disastrous. The political structure is criminal. It’s ambiguous that people clamouring for change are the ones labeling those ready to work for such change.
"APC and PDP are known for crass insensitivity. They are coming with similar baggage that has matured in our fraudulent political system."
He further harped that the combination of APC and PDP lacks consistency in appropriate governance and their style will be detrimental to the development of Nigeria as a country.
