Hardship: PDP, LP, NNPP, others failing, not doing what’s expected of them – Pat Utomi


Renowned political economist Professor Pat Utomi has said opposition political parties in Nigeria are not living up to expectations.

He said the opposition political parties should be at the forefront of protests against hardship and suffering in the country.

He said they have failed in their responsibilities as opposition parties as they standby while the ruling party gets away with disastrous management of the nation’s affairs as the citizens grapple with worsening economic hardship and cost of living crisis.

Utomi voiced his displeasure in a post on his X handle on Thursday.

He said labour unions are now the ones leading protests because political parties are failing.

According to him, opposition parties lead protests in other climes, saying it is why the building of real parties is imperative.

He said: “The protests have come and gone. Power says they are political. What did they expect them to be, apolitical. Labour Unions are acting because political parties are failing. Elsewhere opposition parties lead the protests.This is why the building of real parties is imperative.”

Recall that the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, and other related unions protested the high cost of living, inflation, insecurity, and hardship in the country.

The NLC and the Trade Union Congress had issued a 14-day nationwide strike notice to the government over the failure to implement the agreements reached following the removal of the fuel subsidy
