Opposition parties instigating mass protests- Morka
The National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress APC Mr Felix Morka, says opposition parties are instigating protests to undermine the government.
In a statement issued to newsmen in Abuja, the APC Spokesman said in its arrant desperation 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.
Morka stated that the protests in Minna and Kano on Monday were the manifestation of the plot, adding that the protests happening 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 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 Spokesman, 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.
He urged Nigerians to shun the attempt by opposition elements to destabilize the country for their own base and political gains.
