In the wake of mounting unrest in Minna and Kano over deepening economic challenges, the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has rebuked the All Progressives Congress (APC) for attributing the turmoil to opposition instigation.

In a statement released on Wednesday, the PRP called on the ruling party to refrain from deflecting genuine public grievances and instead, focus on addressing the urgent issues confronting the nation.

Comrade Muhammed Ishaq, the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the PRP, expressed profound dismay at the narrative propagated by the APC.

“It is deeply disheartening to witness the All Progressives Congress resorting to unfounded allegations and fear tactics in an attempt to divert attention from the legitimate concerns voiced by the Nigerian populace,” remarked Ishaq.

Ishaq underscored that the protests represent an authentic grassroots expression of frustration, rather than being orchestrated for political gain.

The demonstrations, which have reverberated across Nigeria’s key urban centers, underscore the populace’s struggle against “enforced deprivation” and broader economic adversities, according to Ishaq.

“The citizens of Nigeria have a fundamental right to peaceful protest and to demand accountability from their elected representatives,” asserted Ishaq.

Muhammed Ishaq criticized the APC’s dismissal of these protests as mere opposition manipulation, emphasizing that they are symptomatic of escalating discontent among the populace.

Rather than engaging in a blame game, the PRP urged the APC to heed the grievances of the people and engage in substantive dialogue.

“We stand in solidarity with ordinary Nigerians nationwide, enduring the consequences of poor governance. It is imperative that the APC desists from playing the blame game and instead focuses on delivering on its commitments to the Nigerian people,” declared Ishaq.

Muhammed Ishaq clarified that the party’s call to action is a plea for unity and proactive government measures to address the escalating tide of public dissatisfaction.
