A chieftain of the Labour Party, Professor Pat Utomi, said late Monday that the structures built by the ruling All Progressives Congress and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party were for vote mobilisation and vote rigging.
In an Arise TV Prime Time interview on Monday night monitored by our correspondent in Lagos, Utomi said the Labour Party was building a better structure that would include all state branches of the Nigeria Labour Congress.
The professor of political economy said the structure being referred to by the APC as well as the PDP was nothing to be compared to what the Labour Party was coming up with.
He said, “What the PDP and the APC call structure is for mobilising for votes and rigging.”
Utomi, who stepped down as a presidential aspirant of the party to support the emergence of Peter Obi, said the Labour Party was building a structure similar to that of the South Africa’s African National Congress.
