Insecurity: Give Tinubu Time, APC Tells Amnesty Int’l, Others

The All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday told Amnesty International (AI) to give the Bola Tinubu government time to resolve the security situation in the country. In a statement by National Publicity Secretary Felix Morka, the ruling party accused AI of being hard on the administration on insecurity. According to the party, the new administration made commitment to solve the security challenges.

It said: “The APC is shocked by the statement by Amnesty International accusing the new government of indifference to the latest killings in some parts of the country, two weeks after he was sworn in. “While we thank Amnesty International for drawing attention to the lingering security challenges facing our country, especially in Plateau, Kaduna, Benue and Zamfara, we find its conclusion hasty and inconsiderate.”

The party added: “During his inaugural speech, President Bola Tinubu said clearly that security would be the topmost priority of his administration and he promised to reform the nation’s security doctrine and architecture. “He promised in categorical terms that security shall be the top priority of our administration because neither prosperity nor justice can prevail amidst insecurity.
