The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it is unfair to assess the administration of President Bola Tinubu based on the current economic realities. Speaking in an interview on Channels Television, Felix Morka, APC spokesperson, said things are tough in many parts of the world.
COST OF LIVING
On Monday, some residents of Minna, Niger state capital, blocked major roads in the city to protest the rising cost of living in the country. There was also a protest in Kano state over the economic hardship being experienced by Nigerians.
Speaking on the development, Morka said the criticism of the Tinubu administration on the economic situation of the country is “unfair”, adding that the government is yet to spend one year in office.
“Our people are dealing with circumstances that are difficult and challenging. Nobody is in denial,” he said. Things are tough, they are tough in Nigeria and everywhere else. Farmers in Europe are barely going to farm, they are protesting vehemently, challenging the European government, who by all indices are doing better than we are but things are still tough.
“This government has a mandate of four years. Why are we sitting here talking as though we are in the eighth month of the eight years of this administration?
“This government is not one year in office yet, just a few months. It is unfair to this president. Look at the bold steps this administration has taken to tackle these fundamental problems.”
