The National Chairman of the Labour Party, Julius Abure, has said the present challenges facing Nigeria as a nation should not be entirely blamed on leaders, stating that the crop of the current followership is also culpable.

He said the situation of the country was the result of the choices made by Nigerians during the last general elections.

Abure stated this on Saturday in Lagos while speaking to newsmen in the wake of the Court of Appeal judgment reversing his sacking as the LP National Chairman.

The LP chairman said, “I have often argued that it isn’t correct when people define leadership as a reflection of the people But in the face of the events that have happened in the past few months after the 2023 general elections, I have gradually come to the realisation that followership is part of the problems facing the country.

Abure called on Nigerians to change their orientation about governance so Nigeria can become a better country.

LP chieftain, Omonhinmin Aiyegbeni, who facilitated the media session with the LP leader, commended Abure for holding the party together despite all the challenges he faced.
