The need for better reportage of the achievements of the governing party in Nigeria, the All Progressives Congress, APC has been raised by the party’s National Chairman, Senator Abdullahi Adamu.

Senator Adamu charged the APC Professional Forum to contribute to the party by ensuring that the public is not misinformed about the performance of the APC government.

He gave the charge when the Forum paid him a courtesy visit at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.

The APC National chairman noted that the grassroot are only getting information about the negative aspect of the government and not enough information about its achievements.

We have the misfortune of the efforts of this government not getting to the grassroots in terms of positive publicity of what this government is doing. All that those who care to talk want to say is the negative aspect of this government.

“All the good things that have happened in this administration have not received the kind of publicity it deserves. See the social programmes that this government is having for teachers, farmers, and market women. The school feeding programme. These are critical programmes that have not been undertaken by the PDP for the 16 years they were in government.

“We are doing it but nobody praises the government for it. All that we get is criticism. If we get ourselves involved in positive reporting of what is happening, the electorates will know the difference. They will know what is the truth” Adamu said.

Media Management
The APC National Chairman also pointed out the need for better media management in the country.

In his remarks, the APC Professional Forum led by a former Governor of Bauchi State, Malam Isa Yuguda advocated for more professionals in politics, noting that there will be motion without movement if they are kept aside.

Yuguda said the Forum has plans to organize a leadership retreat for the National Working Committee, NWC of the party and also a town hall meeting with the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate as part of measures to interact with the public and inform them of the campaign manifestos of the party.

One of our mission is to lend support to the party when it comes to sensitisation because most of these associations they know little about capacity of the party and we have visited quite a number of professional bodies highlighting to them the importance of party politics, highlighting to them also the importance of associating with us so that we can contribute our quotas as professionals to party activities.

“What we need in this country is good governance, and if professionals are kept aside without being accommodated to hear their view, I believe what we will continue to have is what is called motion without movement” Yuguda said.
