The All Progressives Congress in Osun state has advised labour unions and workers in the state's employment to have at the back of their minds that Nigeria's economy will take some time and some belt-tightening before things can return to normal.
The party spokesman, Barrister Kunle Oyatomi, in a statement on Tuesday said the damage done by the PDP's “corrupt, reckless and horrifying mismanagement” in the last seven years is such that except most states of the federation have a sustained lifeline from the Federal Government, things may not return to normal soon.
According to the party, a creative new thinking as to how this problem could be solved, moving forward, should be the challenge of everybody.
Oyatomi remarked that "narrowing people’s thinking to self interest may not work because the country is not only broke, it also faces the huge problem of exiting (not alleviating) poverty'.
The APC equally noted with satisfaction that labour categorically distanced itself from the actions of rabble- rousers who purported to be protesting against government's inability to pay workers' salaries in the last six months.
'He said those protests, which the labour itself described as 'politically motivated' came in the wake of a vicious propaganda campaign which Osun PDP mounted to denigrate the APC government and Gov. Rauf Aregbesola.
