Why Labour Party Lawmakers In National Assembly Cannot Make Any Change In The Nation – Onovo

The presidential candidate of the National Conscience Party (NCP) in 2015, Martin Onovo has addressed concerns that the Labour Party (LP) has not lived up to the expectations of Nigerians considering the behaviour of the party legislators in the National Assembly.

Onovo noted that the concerns cannot be justified because the LP legislators are in the minority.

He stated this during an interview with The Sun.


The former NCP flag bearer insisted that for any change to be made all the opposition parties in the National Assembly have to join forces.

According to him, “The concerns cannot be justified. Labour Party is in minority in the National Assembly and so cannot do anything democratically. The strategy is to unite all opposition parties in the National Assembly. Though they will still be a minority, they will be a more significant minority and can align with other APC factions to get a majority on some issues.”
