LP to APC: Your ineptitude caused protests — leave opposition out of it

The Labour party (LP) says the protests in Niger and Kano states were caused by the ineptitude of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led federal government.

On Monday, protests over the rising cost of living and food inflation, disrupted commercial activities and compounded traffic in both states.

Thereafter, Felix Morka, spokesperson of the APC, accused opposition political parties of sponsoring the protests.

Reacting, the LP in a statement signed by Obiora Ifoh, national publicity secretary of the party, said the protests were caused by "ineptitude of the APC-led administration".

"Every right thinking Nigerian knows that the APC is the originator and sustainer of sponsored protests," the statement reads.

"For the party to now suggest that Nigerians who are at the verge of losing it all because of bad policy 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 is all about making judicious use of it to better the lot of the masses."
