FG Minna Protest: APC accuses opposition of investigating protests to undermine FG

Mr Felix Morka, the party’s National Publicity Secretary said this in a statement while reacting to Monday’s protest in Minna, Niger State, saying it was an arrant desperation by the opposition to portray the 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,” Morka said.
He added that while the APC recognised the right of citizens to engage in peaceful protest, there was a need for people to remain vigilant.
He, therefore, urged Nigerians to be vigilant and not lend themselves to attempt by the opposition to promote social strife by its incendiary rhetoric and manipulative plots.
Morka assured that the President Bola Tinubu-led administration was committed to doing everything in its power to mitigate the transient pains of critically important reforms that were crucial to economic recovery and sustainable prosperity for all Nigerians.
He said it behoves 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 destabilise the country for their own base and parochial political gains,”Morka said.
