In the ongoing political symphony, the All Progressives Congress (APC) has struck back at the critiques leveled by Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi, challenging them to do more than criticize and instead contribute constructive ideas for the economic and governance challenges facing the nation.
The APC National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, during a Channels TV interview on Tuesday, dismissed the criticisms as “incendiary” and called for a more proactive engagement.
Morka emphasized that opposition politics should not solely revolve around condemnation but should also provide valuable suggestions. He urged Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi to go beyond mere disapproval and offer tangible solutions.
Referring to their previous endorsements of some of the government’s economic policies, Morka questioned the sudden shift in stance, challenging them to provide alternative approaches.
Dismissive of Atiku Abubakar’s criticisms as politically motivated, Morka insisted on the need for concrete suggestions rather than mere verbal jousting. He asserted that constructive dialogue could pave the way for a more nuanced understanding of the challenges at hand.
Atiku Abubakar and Peter Obi had recently expressed concerns about the economic policies under Bola Tinubu’s leadership, pointing to rising inflation and food prices. In response to mounting discontent and protests over economic hardships in various states, Tinubu had urged Nigerians to exhibit understanding, citing ongoing efforts in the “financial re-engineering” of the country.
The discord between political figures echoes the broader sentiment of a nation grappling with economic uncertainties. As the political overture continues, the call for substantive contributions to governance and economic strategies resonates.
