APC originator, sustainer of sponsored protests -LP

Labour Party, LP, has described the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, as the originator and sustainer of sponsored protests in the country.

LP, reacting to APC allegations that opposition parties were behind protests against the current economic hardships in the country, in a statement on Tuesday, by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Obiora Ifoh, 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 at 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.

“But unfortunately, you cannot give what you don’t have. Governance is not about grabbing and running away with power, it all about making judicious use of it to better the lots of the masses,” it added.
