APC slams Amnesty for blaming President Bola Tinubu on killings in Nigeria. The All Progressives Congress has released a statement expressing their deep concern and shock regarding the recent report by Amnesty International. According to the report, over 120 individuals have tragically lost their lives since the inauguration of President Bola Tinubu on May 29.

In a recent statement signed by Isa Sanusi, the acting Nigeria Director of Amnesty International, the organization expressed deep concern over the ongoing violence and killings perpetrated by marauding gangs in the country. Despite the President’s promises to take action and implement security measures in response to these attacks, Amnesty International has observed that these promises have yet to be translated into meaningful action. The organization is deeply troubled by the continued loss of life and calls on the government to take swift and decisive action to protect its citizens and ensure their safety and security.

However, in a counter-statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday, the National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, Felix Morka, frowned on the Amnesty International’s report, which the ruling party described “a hasty departure from reality.”

The APC scribe said, “While we thank Amnesty International for drawing attention to the lingering security challenges in our country, especially in Plateau, Kaduna, Benue and Zamfara, we find its conclusion hasty and inconsiderate.

“It is therefore uncharitable and inconsiderate of Amnesty International, through its acting Nigeria Country Director, Isa Sanusi, to accuse the new government that is just settling down of dereliction of duty.”

The ruling party alleged that AI was known for stoking internal conflict and citizen antagonism in developing nations “through weaponisation and accentuation of local situations to achieve its sinister objectives while hypocritically looking the other way when similar incidents occur in developed nations, especially in the Western world.”
