Peter Obi, the 2023 presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has expressed his condolences over the tragic incident in Lagos where seven Nigerians lost their lives while attempting to purchase subsidized rice auctioned by the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS) last week.

Obi described the incident as heartbreaking and reflective of the level of hardship, hunger, and starvation prevalent in the country. He emphasized the dire economic situation, with millions of Nigerians unsure of where their next meal will come from, and lamented the state of the national economy, which he described as the worst in history.

He urged the government to take aggressive steps to address hunger by investing heavily in the agricultural sector and ensuring the safety and security of farmers. He criticized the allocation of resources to wasteful expenditures while neglecting the needs of ordinary citizens, calling for a redirection of focus towards productive sectors like food production.

Obi commended the resilience of Nigerians in the face of adversity and encouraged them to remain steadfast in their pursuit of a better Nigeria. He reiterated his belief in the possibility of building a new and prosperous nation and called for collective efforts towards achieving this goal.

They didn't lose their lives because of hardship. They lost their lives to disorderliness and rascality. Hopefully a lesson to others.
