The Vice Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi, has said the country is not working despite the All Progressives Congress (APC) claiming to have the best brains.

The former governor of Anambra was reacting to a statement credited to the governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai that there is no single thinking brain left in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Speaking on ARISE TV on Monday, Obi said: “Well, all the good brains are in APC, but the country is not working. The good brains are in APC, yet the country is collapsing. That’s all I can say.

“When APC came, this country was growing at six percent, since they came, look at where we are! Everything has headed south, not one item is positive.”

APC promises

Speaking further, Peter Obi stated that in 2015, APC came to campaign with a bundle of lies and presently, instead of the ruling party telling Nigerians if they had been able to fulfill their promises, they were spinning more lies.

Minimum wage

Adding his voice to the current minimum wage debate, he said there was a need to sit down with labour, look at the income of the nation and the various states and determine the appropriate figure.

“Personally, I do not believe that somebody from Lagos should pay same thing with somebody from Ebonyi State. If you go all over the globe, there is no place where two states pay the same salary even America,” he said.
