    2023: CSOs task governorship candidates in Plateau on good governance 

    Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) on the aegis of the Plateau Peace Practioners Network, has advised governorship candidates in the state to include good governance in their electioneering.

    The organisations gave the charge at a colloquium they organised on Thursday in Jos. Speaking at the event, Mr Jacob Pwakim,  chairman of the network, said that the colloquium aimed at creating a platform for citizens to engage the candidates.

    Pwakim, who said that PPPN is a conglomerate of civil society organisations working on peace- building in the state, explained that the event was first of its kind in the history of the network.

    The chairman also tasked the candidates that whoever emerged after the 2023 general elections, should commit more resources and efforts toward promoting peace in state ”We have decided to put this together to create the a platform to engage the governorship candidates on good governance.

    ”It is a platform for the candidates to tell the public what they have in stock for the people and to create strong synergy with the organisations in the state.

    ”As a network,  we want to strongly advised whoever among you that becomes the governor to adequately fund the state’s Peace Building Agency (PPBA) established by the current administration ”We want to also advise that the next governor should leverage the Open Government Partnership (OGP) initiative of the current administration in spending public funds,” he said.

    Pwakim maintained that the OGP would curtail incidences of corruption and misappropriation of public funds, that mostly lands the chief executives into trouble after office.

    Speaking at the event, Mr Caleb Mutfwang,  the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), thanked the network for providing them the platform to reel out their manifestos to the public.

    Mutfwang promised to commit reasonable resources and commitment toward addressing ongoing violent conflicts in the state.

    NRM replaces Presidential candidate, suspends Nwaanyajike

    The National Executive Committee (NEC) of National Rescue Movement (NRM), has announced the replacement of its Presidential candidate for the 2023 general election.

    Amb. Isaac Udeh, the National Chairman of the party, made the announcement during the party’s Second Quarter NEC meeting, on Tuesday in Abuja.

    He said that the party had replaced the erstwhile presidential candidate, Mr Okwudili Nwaanyajike with Mr Felix Osakwe.

    According to him, Nwaanyajike was replaced by the NEC and suspended from the party over failure to meet party requirements and others conditions.

    Udeh said that, Osakwe, the new presidential candidate, had met all party requirements to stand as its presidential flag bearer in the 2023 general elections.

    He explained that the decision to suspend Nwaanyajike and replace him with Osakwe was unanimous and in line with the party’s guidelines.

    “The NEC members have taken this unanimous resolution today at the 2nd quarter NEC meeting.

    “Nwaanyadike, the initial 2023 presidential candidate was alleged of not meeting up with the party’s conditions and the leadership took this golden decision which is in accordance with our party guidelines.

    “And this is also in line with the Electoral Act and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) guidelines,” he said.

    Udeh advised Nwaanyajike to take the NEC decision in good faith in order to brighten the chances of the party in the 2023 general elections.

    According to him, the former NRM presidential candidate had generated unwarranted controversies which if not brought to an end would mar the party’s effort to emerge victories at the polls.

    Udeh cautioned “selfish party members” to stop distracting the party from its efforts to unite all members.

    He said that the party was working tirelessly to clinch the presidential seat and other elective positions in various constituencies across the country in the forthcoming election.

    “NRM has proven it and has shown strength as a party to prove that it is ready for the task ahead in 2023. “We must understand that in Nigeria politics, election year is usually characterised with so much intrigues, internal wrangling, disputes and conflict, all because of people who will elevate their personal interest above party and country’s interest.

    “But as a party that believes in law and order, together with INEC and well-meaning Nigerians, we shall continue to work to make inputs in our electoral laws to improve the quality of our democracy,” he said.

    The NRC National Chairman said that the party would adhere to all INEC guidelines for the elections.

    The NEC agreed in a voice vote to extend the tenure of the National Executive officers from one to four years, in line with Article 11.1 of the party’s constitution.

    The NEC approved that the NRM National Working Committee should constitute the party’s  campaign council for the 2023 general election.

    It also approved the replacement of Mr Jikimshi Jikimshi, Deputy National Chairman North, with Mr Salisu Dawaki.

    The meeting was attended by INEC representatives and local observers, among others.

    2023: No course for alarm, Isaac Udeh-led NWC still intact –NRM

    The National Rescue Movement (NRM), says there is no course for alarm as the Isaac Chigozie Udeh-led National Working Committee (NWC) is intact and in charge of the party’s affairs.

    Mr Sola Afuye, National Publicity Secretary, NRM, said this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja.

    Afuye said that NRM remained an independent party with no plans to merge with any other party for the presidential election in 2023. “The party is not in any merger discussion with other political parties and our presidential candidate is also not in merger discussion with other party presidential candidates.

    “We are using every available opportunity to inform the public and other political parties that NRM is not in any merger discussion or any alliance talk with any political party, ahead of 2023 general election.

    “As a party we are advising the presidential candidates of various political parties to shun any secret alliance talk with distractors under the guise of NRM.

    “Ahead of 2023 general elections, we remain committed and faithful to the objectives of our party and never shall we drift away from our yawning precipice,’’ he said.

    Afuye however, said that the party’s concern was how to galvanise and strategise to win all elective positions, especially the presidential election in 2023. He added that the party would no longer tolerate distractions by political jobbers seeking to tarnish its image or to discredit it.

    He called on all Nigerians at home and in the Diaspora to join NRM to salvage and rescue Nigeria from all the negativities bedeviling it.

    “Also the leadership of our great party is so much aware of the illegal activities of some elements in our party under the supervision of Sen. Saidu Dansadau, the former National Chairman.

    “We equally have decided not to join issues with them or promote their obnoxious intentions carried out during their night vigil on Friday, Aug. 12. “Rather, we hold our faithful members and the general public the true position of the party on such matter.

    “People conversant with how political parties affairs are handled on who has the rights to call for party meetings and so on will know that it is an illegal action,” he said.

    He said that the party was glad that its genuine members across the country were knowledgeable on matters of the party’s constitution.

    “That is the reason we refused to participate in such shenanigan,’’ he said.

    He said that such meetings without due process would not be acknowledged by the party especially as record also had it that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officers were not present.

    “It is obvious that the perpetrators don’t have any place under the law to hide their obnoxious actions than to use Sen. Saidu Dansadau’s living room,’’ he said.

    Afuye said that the preparation ahead of the party’s NEC meeting on Sept. 5 was on course and nothing would discourage them.

    NRM denies collapsing structures into APC in Katsina

    The Katsina chapter of the National Rescue Movement (NRM)has faulted claims that it has collapsed its structure into the All Progressives Congress (APC) for 2023 general election.

    The state NRM secretary, Alhaji Abubakar Birchi, said this in a statement in Katsina on Tuesday.

    “A story posted on some media outlets and pictures attached to support the claim are not just laughable but some tactic to distract NRM, which we deemed as political scandal,” he said.

    According to him, the identifiable faces in pictures posted, were three persons who happened to be former members of the party.

    “Unknown to them, NRM had updated its membership register at the recent ward, local government and state congresses as well as national convention.

    “However, individuals are free to associate or pursue their interest or fortune in any party, but it is mischievous to use the name of NRM.

    “While we wish to take legal action against the trio, we explore all NRM members and the general public to disregard the social media claims, as NRM was ready to participate in all the elections in 2023,” Birchi said.

    Afuye assured all those vying for different elective positions from the party to continue with their consultations, ahead of its primaries.

     

    “It is important to bring to the notice of everyone about a publication on the purported merger of some political parties.

     

    “The agents of distraction spreading such news deliberately included the name of our great party: National Rescue Movement because of our recent growth.

     

    “The leadership of our great party hereby calls on all our ever-conscious members, followers and partners on our genuine ‘Rescue Nigeria Project’ to disregard such malicious reports.

    “This is an attempt to derail our moving train that is heading toward Aso Rock in 2023. We are resolute on this, as we are not ready to settle for less.

     

    “We have issued such groups and any other faceless group behind this unholy merger or alliance, as the case may be, to desist from this campaign of calumny or else we shall meet in a court of law.

     

    “The National Rescue Movement is not in any alliance or having such plans, ahead of 2023 elections,” he said.

     

    Afuye noted that the party’s primaries, scheduled for June 1 and June 2 remain sacrosanct.

     

    He said that the party was confident of fielding candidates in all the positions for the 2023 general elections, including the presidential election.

     

    This, according to the NRM spokesman, is part of the party’s social contract with the people of Nigeria, maintaining that this was not negotiable.

    NRM presidential aspirant urges Nigerians to vote wisely in 2023

    Mr Okwudili Anyajike, presidential aspirant of the National Rescue Movement (NRM), has advised Nigerians to vote wisely by electing credible leaders in the 2023 general elections.

     

    Anyajike said this when he addressed newsmen shortly after he obtained expression of interest and nomination form in Abuja on Monday.

     

    According to him, no party or politician can genuinely change Nigeria if the masses do not willingly give them the opportunity to do so.

     

    “For Nigeria to really be rescued, restored and revived, the masses must vote rightly for candidates that they have truly assessed to be worth it.

     

    “No politician or political party is mighty enough to win an election without the support of the masses.

     

    “So I am going to rely on the goodwill of the masses to contest and win in the 2023 general elections.

     

    “I am not scared of any politician, or the two most popular political parties, instead what anyone should be scared of are the masses and the power to elect,’’ he said..

    Anyajike said that he chose to run on NRM platform because it has mass followership of the masses being a grassroots party, with young professionals.

    He said that he plans to launch the “The Nigerian Project”, to reduce the cost of living in  the  country and enhance economic growth, if elected.

     

    He promised to create job opportunities to tackle unemployment, solve hunger and starvation and bring insecurities to its barest minimum.

     

    Similarly, Mr Maina Aliyu-Abba, an Adamawa Governorship aspirant on the NRM platform promised to focus on youths and women development if elected.

     

    Aliyu-Abba urged Nigerians to get registered in the ongoing Continuous Voter Registration in order not to be disenfranchised during the election.

     

    Malam Idris Isah, National Organising Secretary of the party urged both aspirants to  adhere strictly to the laid down rules of the Independent National Electoral Commission in pursuing  their ambition.
