Currency swap crisis: APC urges S-West states to shun apathy

The Southwest chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has appealed to all residents in the six southwest states to reject growing sense of voter apathy as the general elections draw near. 

The party, in a statement issued by its southwest zonal Publicity Secretary, Ayo Afolabi and made available to Vanguard yesterday, noted that it is now clear as daylight that those that sold this policy to President Buhari are exploiting Mr. President’s statesmanship to achieve their hidden agenda, which is to incite Nigerians against the APC as a party and Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

"Among all the presidential candidates, only Asiwaju Tinubu is pleading on the side of the hapless masses, while the rest, especially the PDP candidate, Atiku Abubakar, do not care what becomes of the hapless masses that bear the brunt of this policy," the party stated.

APC Southwest commended the public figures, who it said, at great risk, have taken side with the Nigerian masses by not only condemning the timing of this well-intentioned, but badly executed policy but also proffering ameliorative steps.

The party said further: "Conversely, we condemn, as unworthy of public trust, those who have continued to support it because of morsels of political gain."

"We sympathise with millions of Nigerians whose means of livelihood have been threatened by this policy, especially farmers, transporters, livestock dealers, POS operators, retail grocers and traders. We assure them of Asiwaju Tinubu’s commitment to ensuring they bounce back and better."

"We, therefore, call on residents to see beyond this shenanigan and refuse to give in to apathy. We call on them to troop out and vote for the APC on Feb 25th to herald in the era of ‘renewed hope,’ which Asiwaju Tinubu has promised and which he is capable of delivering," APC said.
