‘Fix it, strike a distraction’ – Osinbajo’s aide tells Tinubu


Laolu Akande, a former aide to ex-Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, has described the ongoing nationwide strike by organized labour as a distraction.

Akande urged President Bola Tinubu to fix the issues that led to the strike because Nigerians don’t need such distraction.

He said the hardship facing Nigerians and the country’s fiscal crisis are bigger than the ongoing strike.

Featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today, Akande urged Tinubu to end the national problems which, according to him, have been compounded by the national strike which commenced Tuesday.

Akande said, “Mr president has said that the bucks stop at his table, so we need to address Mr President and say look Mr president, fix this. We don’t need this distraction.


“The nation has more important problems to deal with. The people are suffering, the last thing that people want to have to deal with is a national strike. We don’t need this strike and I believe that it can be sorted out as quickly as possible. I don’t see a very big problem here.

“This is the kind of action that we need. We don’t need any further delay, we need the President to get on the ball and sort this thing out and he can sort it out very quickly. Mr President fix this.

“This is something that can be sorted out with a single phone call. A phone call from the Villa to the Labour leaders would get them running into the Villa.”
