NNPP Carpets FG, APC Over Deplorable State Of Nigeria

The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has de­scribed the state of the nation as bad and calls for patriotism by all Nigerians to confront the multifarious challenges facing the country.

In a Sallah message to the Muslim Ummah, the opposition party noted that the upcoming 2023 general elections is another op­portunity for Nigerians to take their destiny in their hands and address the state of things.

It said, “The forthcom­ing general election pro­vides another opportunity for Nigerians to take their destiny in their hands and elect competent, credible, vibrant, resourceful, pur­poseful, visionary and God-fearing leaders who will deliver dividends of democracy that will uplift the people’s standards of living, not carnage as ob­tainable today.”

While urging Muslim faithful and Nigerians to pray for peace, unity, jus­tice, equity, progress and prosperity of the nation as it grapples with the task of nation building, the party tasked Muslims to imbibe the virtues of love, sacri­fice and tolerance as signi­fied by the occasion.

While lamenting what it described as the deplorable situation of the country, it also used the opportunity of the statement to accuse the governing All Progres­sives Congress-led Federal Government of woefully failing “to protect the ter­ritorial integrity of Nige­ria, playing to the gallery while the nation burns and Nigeria turns to the pover­ty capital of the world.”

Signed by NNPP National Publicity Secretary, Agbo Major, the statement urged Nigerians of voting age “to take advantage of the extension of the INEC voter registration to reg­ister and obtain their per­manent voter cards, and ensure they vote for New Nigeria People’s Party can­didates in all elections.”

It said, “This is the first step in actualising a new Nigeria we all desire and deserve in accordance with Section 14(2)b of the Con­stitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria 1999 (as amended), which pro­vides that the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government.”

It further described the party’s presidential flag bearer, Rabiu Kwank­waso, as “a great patriot, a detribalised Nigerian who has served the nation cred­itably in various capacities as governor, Minister and Senator.

“A man of indefatigable endeavour, he is an em­bodiment of patriotism and frank in addressing national issues as he has no hidden agenda, the very reason millions of Nigeri­ans identify with him and NNPP in our collective efforts to make Nigeria great again. He has high regard for Ndigbo, NNPP was founded by an illus­trious son of Ndigbo, Dr Boniface Aniebunam, pi­oneer National Chairman and currently its Board of Trustees Chairman.

“It’s a grassroots party well rooted in all zones re­flecting Federal Character as envisioned in the 1999 Constitution as amended. Kwankwaso’s recent com­ments on the good people of the South East were misunderstood and tak­en out of context. He is a man of honour who loves all Nigerians passionately and desires to serve them as president if voted into office.

“Obviously, the party or its presidential candi­date would not in any way malign any zone or any individual, as we believe that in NNPP we desire the votes of all the zones and all the electorate to govern Nigeria.

“The leadership of the party is impressed by the overwhelming number of members and supporters of NNPP in the South East. It shows the people’s desire for a new Nigeria that treats all citizens equally.

The party is optimistic that various agitations in all zones in Nigeria will be a thing of the past if a progressive and transfor­mative leader like Kwank­waso is elected president of Nigeria. This is our chance to correct the mis­takes made in previous elections. A new Nigeria beckons.”
