In its arrant desperation to portray the All Progressives Congress-led administration as under-performing, opposition parties have resorted to instigating unsuspecting young people to protests in the streets of some major cities, says the ruling party’s Scribe.

Felix Morka, Esq., National Publicity Secretary of APC,   in a statement asserted the protests in Minna, Niger State capital, and Kano, in Northern Nigeria, that occurred Monday, February 5, 2024, were the manifestation of this devious and unpatriotic plot.

Morka stated: “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.”

The National Publicity Secretary also said: “While we recognise the right of citizens to engage in peaceful protest, we urge our good 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.”

According to the party, President Bola Ahmed 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 behoves us as good citizens of our beloved country to stand fast with our government in this noble stride.”

The APC further assured that “in due time, these policy reforms will yield enduring beneficial transformation of the material conditions of life in the country.”

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