National Chairman of the Labour Party, Julius Abure has identified Institutional Conspiracy, corruption as factors limitating Nigeria’s growth.
In a statement in Abuja, to commemorate the nation’s 63rd independence anniversary, Abure decries the slow pace of growth since Independence.
“All the plethora of challenges Nigeria has battled with, Institutional conspiracy and corruption in high places are key reasons why Nigeria is still struggling” Abure stresses.
The statement notes that a New Nigeria is still possible if the leaders put the nation first before self.
“We believe that a new Nigeria is still possible. I foresee a total and imminent emancipation of Nigeria from the clutches of darkness”.
“Leadership is all about service and making life better for the people but today what we see are leaders who are interested in pilling fortunes while majority of the populace are left to wallow in abject poverty” he adds.
“Our younger generation who were not born before independence but read history of the great heroes and heroines of Nigeria, will be wondering where we got it all wrong. How truth is killed on the alter of technicalities in our temple of justices.” Abure explains.
“However, Nigeria can still rise to attain greatness if our generation can muster the courage to speak with one voice in condemnation of the evil that has kept the nation under perpetual bondage”.
