The spokesperson for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign, Kassim Afegbua, has said that the people will not be agitating for revolution if the country is being governed well by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Afegbua stated this when he appeared as a guest on Channels Television programme, Politics Today.
Legit.ng gathers that the PDP presidential campaign spokesperson was reacting to the RevolutionNow protest that held on Monday, August 5, in some parts of the country.
He said: “If you look at the blueprint of the Revolution Now, they are asking for quite a number of very salient issues.
“But for the failure of government, for the failure of the All Progressives Congress-led government in certain critical sectors of the nation’s economy, both politics and the welfare of the people, this Revolution Now is beginning to gain attention in the minds of the people.
“If things were right, if the APC could seat down and provide governance, if they can govern the country very well, people will not be agitating for things like Revolution Now."
Afegbua described the Buhari-led administration as being confused and clueless.
He said: “The APC government appears so confused, so rudderless, so clueless to the extent that there is no conversation on sensitive national issues."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Arewa Youth Federation issued a warning to northern youths not to be used to destabilise the country and asked them to shun the RevolutionNow protests.
The group gave this warning through its president, Adamu Kabir Matazu, in Abuja.
Matazu said the protest was a call against a democratically elected government and that activism must be done within acceptable standard.
