Peter Obi Urges Government to Prioritize Economic Recovery Over Business Clampdown

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 general election, advised President Bola Tinubu’s administration to focus on rescuing the nation’s declining economy instead of taking actions perceived as harsh towards business owners. Obi, in a statement on his official X account, thanked the government for reopening Sahad Stores in Abuja after its closure due to alleged price fixing.

Obi criticized the initial decision to shut down the store and urged the government to avoid actions that could inflict more pain on the people. He emphasized the need for the administration to concentrate on saving the nation from further economic collapse and building a more stable economy. Obi stressed the importance of addressing challenges such as inflation, rising hunger, poverty, and insecurity, and called for pragmatic solutions to alleviate the plight of the citizens.

He suggested that instead of focusing on fixing prices, the government should work towards creating a productive economy with sufficient goods and services, fostering healthy competition and addressing the rising tide of hunger in the nation. Obi emphasized the urgency of transitioning the nation from consumption to production, aligning with his vision for a New Nigeria.
