TRENDING: Nigerians Promote Dignity in Labour Following Tinubu, Obi’s Comments

The hashtag #Labourchallenge dominated Twitter last week, after the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu said the Labour Party will labour to death.

In his words ‘’Parties like Labour; they will labour till they die. God will not make you labourers.”

Tinubu said this while campaigning for the re-election of Gboyega Oyetola as the Governor of Osun State.

In response, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi said there was dignity in labour.

Nigerians quickly jumped on the comments of the two leading presidential candidates by tweeting with the hashtags #Labourchallenge and #Dignityinlabour.

Many people shared pictures of themselves and the kind of job they do.

The pictures were posted with engaging captions to point out that there is #DignityinLabour.

The trend appears to be pushed by the supporters of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi who said he is committed to ensuring a society where citizens earn from their labour.
