In a significant call to action, the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s foremost political entity, has delivered a robust message to opposition parties, urging them to transcend mere critique and actively contribute substantive solutions to the nation’s intricate challenges.
Felix Morka, the eloquent spokesperson representing the APC, articulated this imperative during an exclusive interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today program, aired on Tuesday. Morka emphasized the crucial need for opposition politics to mature beyond the realm of fault-finding and engage constructively in problem-solving.
Expressing a profound sense of concern, Morka underscored that effective opposition entails more than simply identifying problems; it necessitates proactive engagement aimed at fostering national development. He specifically addressed the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and the Labour Party (LP), urging them to transition from adversarial rhetoric to collaborative participation in addressing Nigeria’s socio-economic issues.
Morka astutely pointed out that both the PDP and LP had campaigned on platforms promising reforms similar to those pursued by the current administration under President Bola Tinubu. By highlighting this shared agenda, Morka stressed the potential for bipartisan efforts to tackle the nation’s most pressing challenges, transcending political divides for the collective good.
Acknowledging the complexity of the prevailing socio-political landscape, Morka called for patience and understanding, emphasizing the nascent stage of the Tinubu administration. He urged stakeholders to recognize the significant strides and bold initiatives undertaken by the government within the brief span of its tenure.
“This government is not even a year old yet. We are merely in the infancy of our tenure. Consider the significant strides and bold initiatives undertaken by this administration to confront and tackle these deep-rooted problems,” Morka asserted, reaffirming the APC’s commitment to effecting transformative change.
In conclusion, the APC spokesperson reassured Nigerians that while the journey ahead might be arduous, these obstacles are perceived as temporary challenges on the path to revitalizing the nation and fostering sustainable development.
