Look For Solution To The Economic Hardship Your Govt Created, LP Tells Tinubu Amidst Protests

The Labour Party has advised President Bola Tinubu and the ruling All Progressives Congres (APC), to confront the repercussions of its failed policies rather than seeking scapegoats to blame for its ineptitudes

The National Publicity Secretary of the Party, Obiora Ifoh said this in an interview on Tuesday while responding to APC’s accusations.


Earlier, the APC accused opposition parties as the brain behind the recent protests in major cities across the country.

The ruling party had 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 parties.

Recall, protest broke out on Monday in Minna, the capital of Niger State, and also in Kano over the rising cost of living.

But reacting to the accusation, LP stated that the APC’s attempt to blame opposition parties for protests reflects a refusal to acknowledge the genuine suffering of ordinary citizens, including their own members.


The LP spokesman however called on the ruling party to focus on solving the economic challenges it contributed, instead of engaging in propaganda.

He said, “Every right thinking Nigerian knows that the APC is the originator and sustainer of sponsored protests.

“For the party to now suggest that Nigerians who are on the verge of losing it all because of bad policy decision choices of this administration were sponsored is to say the least laughable.

“Those who took to the streets in Minna, Niger State, a state controlled by the APC went to the streets not as members of opposition parties but as citizens bearing the brunt of this administration’s ineptitude and lack of preparation for governance.

“Irrespective of party affiliations, religious and ethnic creed, we all go to the same market where the prices of goods and services have skyrocketed.


“Our children have had to stay home because their parents can no longer afford their school fees. Because of lack of planning, the Federal Government’ is yet to pay January salaries.

“Our advice to the APC is for it to look for solutions to Nigeria’s problems, especially the economic ones it created instead of this propaganda parade.”
