Tinubu’s policies making APC unpopular – Lukman cries out

Published

A former National Vice Chairman North-west of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Dr Salihu Lukman, has lamented that the ruling party is becoming unpopular by the policies of President Bola Tinubu which have inflicted more pains on Nigerians.

Lukman in a statement issued Friday warned that the ruling party risked rebellion if urgent steps were not taken to ameliorate the situation.

The party chieftain added that to avert such danger, it is important that leaders return to their old mode of acting as visionary politicians and initiate deeply more substantive political reforms in the country to reposition the APC and return it to its founding vision of becoming a progressive political.

“Given this reality, it is painful to admit that both the APC as a party and the government of President Asiwaju Tinubu are becoming increasingly unpopular with Nigerians.

“No one should be deceived that given the way we are becoming more and more unpopular; we are faced with the risk of rebellion by ordinary Nigerians.

“The truth is that given the fact that political opposition to APC is weak, and organisations of civil society in the country are also weak, the capacity to provide the needed leadership to the opposition against APC and President Asiwaju Tinubu may be nebulous and desperate, which could become a threat to democracy.

“To avert such danger, it is important that our leaders return to their old mode of acting as visionary politicians and initiate deeply more substantive political reforms in the country to reposition the APC and return it to its founding vision of becoming a progressive political,” he said.
