APC accuses opposition of masterminding protests against Tinubu


The All Progressives Congress (APC) has fingered opposition parties as the brain behind the recent protests in major cities across the country.

The ruling party in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Barrister Felix Morka, on Tuesday, noted that the Minna and Kano protests were both pointers to the unpatriotic plot of the opposition.

Morka stated that while APC regards the right of the citizens to protest, he urged them not to allow opposition parties to use them against the ruling party.

“In its arrant desperation to portray the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration as under-performing, opposition parties have resorted to instigating unsuspecting young people to protests in the streets of some major cities. 

“The protests in Minna and Kano on Monday were the manifestation of this devious and unpatriotic plot. That the protests happened simultaneously in both cities is not coincidental. It bears a bold stamp of an orchestrated and coordinated effort to instigate unrest and undermine the government. This mercenary opposition tactic is a clear and present threat to public peace and national security. 

“While we recognize the right of citizens to engage in peaceful protest, we urge our people to be vigilant and not lend themselves to the treacherous attempt by the opposition to promote social strife by its incendiary rhetoric and manipulative plots,” Morka said

He therefore urged Nigerians to be patient enough as President Bola Tinubu is committed to bringing about the desired transformation in the country.

“The President Bola Tinubu-led administration is solidly committed to doing everything in its power to mitigate the transient pains of critically important reforms that are crucial to economic recovery and sustainable prosperity for all Nigerians. It behooves us as good citizens of our beloved country to stand fast with our government in this noble stride. In due time, these policy reforms will yield enduring beneficial transformation of the material conditions of life in the country.

“We implore Nigerians to shun the guile and unpatriotic attempt by opposition elements to destabilize the country for their own base and parochial political gains,” Morka appealed.
