The All Progressives Congress campaign council have slammed followers of the Labour Party candidate Peter Obi for following and swallowing everything dished out at them without raising questions and concerns. According to a statement released by the Director, Media and Publicity of the Tinubu/Shettima presidential campaign council, Bayo Onanuga, Obi followers do not evaluate or understand the Labour Party campaign mantra. Onanuga said: “One of the mantras often mouthed by Mr. Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party, is the promise to “shift emphasis from consumption to production”. “In his manifesto, he says he will do this by running a production-centered economy that is driven by an agrarian revolution and export-oriented industrialisation. “I doubt if Peter Obi and his moronic followers have ever for one second reflected on this mantra as it is self-contradictory and meaningless. “A vibrant economy will ride on the twin horses of consumption and production. It cannot do without one, for it is basic economics 101 to know that production happens in expectation of consumption. “Both concepts are natural corollaries, consumption following production. “What I guess Obi means is that he will shift emphasis from ‘import dependency’ to local production of goods. “One of the drawbacks of our economy for decades has been the unbridled appetite of Nigerians for foreign goods, leading to the clogging of our ports with containers.”
