Adams Oshiomhole, the former Governor of Edo State, has accused the presidential candidate of Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, of being responsible for unemployment in Nigeria.

Oshiomhole said the former Anambra State governor contributed to unemployment by importing finished goods into the country.

The former All Progressives Congress, APC, National Chairman and senatorial candidate for Edo North stated this during the flag-off of his campaign in Auchi, Edo State over the weekend.

He said, “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.”

Nigeria’s unemployment rate was ranked at 33 percent as of the last quarter of 2022.  

Obi has promised to transform Nigeria into a productive economy rather than a consumption economy if elected as the president.
