Ozigbo backs LP lawmakers’ call for FG, govs to suspend projects, tackle hunger, insecurity

A former Anambra gubernatorial candidate of the Labour Party, Mr Val Ozigbo, has endorsed the call by the party’s caucus in the State House of Assembly for President Bola Tinubu and all the governors to shelve capital projects for now.

The caucus, consisting of eight lawmakers, had, during a press briefing on Thursday, decried the level of hardship and insecurity in the country.

Ozigbo, while supporting the lawmakers said: “I lend my voice to that of LP inner caucus of Anambra State House of Assembly to call on governments on all tiers to be responsive to the immediate plight of the people, which is hunger and insecurity.

“I think the call is timely because our people are going through excruciating pains as a result of policies that are not of immediate expedience. I hereby fully endorse the communique.

“What the people are experiencing at the moment has moved from poverty to chronic hunger, and to compound issues, security has nose dived abysmally.”

Ozigbo commended the sacrificial spirit of the caucus in agreeing to forfeit their basic salary for six months to feed their constituents.

He said this deserved emulation by other lawmakers, and enjoined them to continue to uphold the manifesto of Mr Peter Obi, the leader of the party, and also the tenets of the party.
