Nigerian professor of political economy and management expert, Professor Pat Utomi, has said opposition political parties in Nigeria are failing, slamming them for failing to lead protests amid worsening economic hardship in the country.

In a post on his X handle on Thursday, Utomi said labour unions are now the ones leading protests because political parties are failing.

According to him, opposition parties lead protests in other climes, saying it is why the building of real parties is imperative.

He said, “The protests have come and gone. Power says they are political. What did they expect them to be, apolitical. Labour Unions are acting because political parties are failing. Elsewhere opposition parties lead the protests. This is why the building of real parties is imperative.”

The Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), and other related unions protested the high cost of living, inflation, insecurity, and hardship in the country.

The protest was to be for two days, but was suspended after the first day, with new demands made by the NLC.
