The Labor Party said those killed in the #EndSARS protest which took place at the Lekki Tollbooth on October 20, 2020, died for the emergence of the party’s 2023 presidential candidate, Peter Obi.
Speaking while accusing the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and All Progressives Congress (APC) of failing Nigerian youths, the Labor Party’s deputy national youth leader, Moses Ogidi-Paul, said that the APC and the PDP have made it difficult for young people to pursue their dreams.

Ogidi-Paul in a statement seen by Legit.ng to mark the second anniversary of the murder of Lekki Tollgate said an APC or PDP victory would further crush the will of young Nigerians.
He said one cannot bear to imagine how easily Nigerian students excel abroad with decades-old academic records.
“The reason is simply because the opportunity was denied at home. Nepotism would deny them scholarships.
“Tribalism will make employment impossible. Religion will kill them in the streets. It is the pitiful situation we live in that has prevented many young people from reaching their potential, with some turning to crime as a result.
“It is undeniable that Nigeria at this time in our history needs an overhaul of our entire ideological architecture to reflect the democratic principles of justice, fairness, equity and respect for the rule of law. “.

Doing it right in Nigeria
Ogidi-Paul added that if Nigeria is to make progress in finding the soul of the nation, the system must recognize the importance of young people.
“There is no doubt that a presidency of Peter Obi will rekindle hope in the hearts of Nigerian youth everywhere. And a nation searching for its soul will finally find it with the youth in mind.
“I call on all young people in Nigeria, wherever they are in the world, to make the realization of ObiDatti’s presidential candidacy their personal project. A victory of the PDP or the APC will maintain the old system in power and will further crush the will of the youth.”
