Tinubu is implementing bold and far-reaching reforms, says APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC) says President Bola Tinubu is implementing bold and far-reaching reforms ncessary for the nation’s economic recovery, sustainable growth and prosperity.
Mr Felix Morka, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, said this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.
He was reacting to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governor’s advise to Tinubu to throw in the towel in the face of the hardships experienced by Nigerians.
“A federal system like ours, operates on the idea of shared, constitutionally delineated responsibilities among the three tiers of government: Federal, State and Local Governments.
“By virtue of their membership of the National Economic Council and National Council of State, governors bear a solemn duty to proffer constructive ideas and solutions to the challenges of governance,” Morka said.
He said that like all citizens, governors were entitled to free speech, adding that such rights must be exercised responsibly.
He stressed that reckless utterances capable of inflaming passions and social upheaval must be avoided.
He said comparing Nigeria to Venezuela, even under the prevailing challenging economic and security contexts of Nigeria, smacks of righteous indignation.
Morka noted that rather than live up to their responsibilities as chief executive of their states, the PDP governors had turned themselves into a band of doomsday vocalists.
This, he said , they were doing by raising their voices “to deafening decibels intended to drown the groans of their citizens battered by their critical inertia, ineptitude and dismal performance”.
The APC spokesman said that the PDP governors’ call to Tinubu to throw in the towel was, therefore, nothing short of self-indictment.
He said it was embarrassing that the same PDP governors that had never justified the recent massive federal allocations to their states, were buck passing.
