    Tinok, 39, daughter of Kaduna renowned late Prof. Nok, declares for Senate

    Mrs Tinok Nok, 39, daughter of renowned Prof. Andrew Jonathan Nok, has declared her intention to contest the Senatorial seat for Kaduna South on the platform of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in the 2023 general elections. Prof. Jonathan Nok is renowned for his discovery of the gene responsible for the synthesis of sialidase, an enzyme which causes sleeping sickness in humans (Human African Trypanosomiasis, HAT) and nagana in animals (Animal African Trypanosomiasis, AAT). Nok, was also the Commissioner of Health in Kaduna State from 2015 to 2017 before his demise. Mrs Tinok Nok made the declaration on Sunday while addressing party members at Kwoi in Jaba Local Government area of Kaduna State. She noted that her intention to contest for the Senatorial seat was not influenced by anyone but purely out of desire to change the tide of Southern Kaduna. “It is not impossible for security to be restored in Southern Kaduna; it is not impossible for the women and youths to be empowered politically and economically; it is not impossible for youths to be gainfully employed in Southern Kaduna and have improved infrastructural development in Southern Kaduna. “My aspiration is inspired, not because anybody sent me, but because I am tired of the backwardness of our region and the need to change the tide. “The people are tired of the status quo and are in dire need for a fresh air and as such, we are determined to bring succor through credible and accountable leadership in Southern Kaduna,” Nok said. Nok, who holds a Bsc in Microbiology from Ahmadu Bello University Zaria and Msc in Public Health from the University of Worcester, United Kingdom, said she was motivated to impact the lives of ordinary Nigerians. “The poor state of the nation due to bad leadership in our country is a major force behind my passion to making a difference, not only in the Nigerian society but Africa at large,” she added. On pet projects executed, Mrs Nok said she held outreaches in schools in the rural parts of the state, aimed at inspiring youths with the “stay in school” programme. She said she had also reached out to several young ladies who were into commercial sex work by introducing them to various skill acquisition programmes, to help them desist from commercial sex activities and make them better people in the society. Earlier, Mr Hosea Baba, NNPP Zonal Chairman representing Zone 3, in his address, applauded the initiative taken by Mrs Nok, describing it as bold, especially for the women folk. Baba noted that the party’s core mandate was predicated upon delivering the aspirations of the electorate, adding “our party would ensure a representation of leadership that is accountable and accommodating,” Baba added. Also, Mr Bulus Kajang who represented Mr Ben Kure, NNPP Chairman in Kaduna State, assured the aspirant of the overwhelming support of the party. “This bold initiative taken has the backing of the party and most importantly, the women folk,” Kajang said. He urged for sustainability of the campaign spirit, with the affirmation that victory would be achieved at the long run. The occasion, which witnessed traditional musical performances by various groups, was attended by representatives of traditional and religious leaders, politicians, women and youth groups. (NAN)

    Focus on APC, PDP killing idea of multi-party – NNPP founder

    Dr Boniface Aniebonam, pioneer National Chairman and founder, New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), says excessive focus on the nation’s two dominant political parties – PDP and APC- has defeated the essence of multi-party system in Nigeria.

    Aniebonam told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos on Sunday that the idea of having a multiple of political platforms was to provide options and broaden the political space.

    “More political parties means more opportunities for credible people to test their popularity toward putting the country on track.

    “It means you can have a platform always available for you to use. It means political ideas have a huge space to blossom without any hindrance,” he said.

    He argued that people got into major political parties because of what they would  likely  get, while looking away from minor parties because they felt there is nothing to gain.

    “The government has never added value nor has it supported the idea of multi-party system. This is not good for political growth and the urgent need to open the space for competitiveness.

    “So, it takes a very courageous person with means to take responsibility outside the leading party or the strong opposition.

    “When you x-ray what is happening in APC and PDP today, you begin to ask yourself why the influx of resourceful persons into just two political parties when there are 18 other parties into which they can spread out iand test their popularity.

    “The essence of multi-party system has been defeated; it is no longer adding value. We know there are advocates of two-party system, but the constitution does not provide for that,” he said.

    According to him, an effective multi-party system has so many merits to the nation and serves the masses better in terms of the dividends of democracy.

    He recalled that Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah contested on the platform of the Young Progressive Party (YPP) in 2019 and won the Anambra South Senatorial seat.

    “You cannot do that if you do not have that courage and the means. We respect such people who take advantage of the multi-party system,” he said.

    Aniebonam recalled that INEC used to support political parties in the past, in its bid to strengthen democracy in the country.

    “Unfortunately, owing to the greed of some party officials, that gesture was stopped.”

    Speaking on NNPP, Aniebonam said that the party was a “divine intervention political platform” registered in 1999 and became operational in 2021 to create a new Nigeria that would work for all citizens.

    According to him, NNPP has won elective positions in Bauchi State to keep the party afloat.

    He said that politics should be about ensuring a better life for the citizenry and adding values to the society.

    “NNPP will provide this country with the greatest leader ever seen because it is divine and that is why you see credible people coming into the party like Sen. Rabiu Kwakwanso, former Kano State governor and many other lawmakers.

    “When I found this party, I had that divine revelation that this party will provide this country with the greatest leader, and that leader will be that Nigerian man that will restart Nigeria from the beginning.

    “He is going to stand courageous to take decisions that will bring us together. It will come to pass and we look forward to that. I solicit for the support of everybody,” he added.

    He decried challenges facing Nigeria ranging from disunity, insecurity and a weak economy, saying that God would not come from heaven to change the conditions.

    “It is our leaders that will do that. We have to elect leaders that are passionate about creating a  new Nigeria.

    “We know what the problem is. We cannot succeed if we do not, voluntarily and deliberately, sit down to talk. The Oduduwa man will talk, Biafra man will talk, Niger-Delta people will talk, the Middle-Belt people will talk, the Arewa people will talk and so on.

    “It is after hearing everybody that we will live together because Nigeria is indivisible – we have all agreed on that. So, nobody is talking about division. We want to remain one Nigeria, but how do we live as one Nigeria?

    “That’s why a leader must come, give us direction, we will have peace and all of us will be happy. It is not difficult,” he added.

    3 aspirants jostling for NNPP’s 2023 presidential ticket – Founder

    The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) says at least, three aspirants have indicated intention to vie for its ticket to contest for the nation’s presidency in the 2023 general elections. Dr Boniface Aniebonam, NNPP  pioneer National Chairman and founder, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria on Sunday in Lagos. Aniebonam, who noted that the future of the party was bright with top politicians coming into the fold, singled out former Kano governor,  Rabiu Kwankwaso as one of the big wigs that had attracted a mass of good will for the political group. According to him, the popularity of NNPP has continued to spread in the north and the south as it moves to provide a strong leadership that will create a new Nigeria in 2023. “NNPP is open for any Nigerian man that has divine calling to lead Nigeria at this critical critical. Once it is within the time frame, the door is open. “At least three persons have shown intention to contest the presidency on the platform of NNPP. I have seen their posters. One is from the North, one from the South-East and another from the South-West. We expect more.” Aniebonam said that the party was available for credible aspirants whose dream was to create a new Nigeria. Explaining why the party was gaining more ground in the north than in the South, Aniebonam said that politics was “a kind of industry better understood in the north”, adding, however, that the party had also been spreading in the southern Nigeria. He said that the party had been creating awareness and was ready to popularise its ideals everywhere. “Within these two months, we have conducted congress elections from the ward, local government, state to national levels throughout the federation. “NNPP is not a party of yesterday, it is a party that has been growing gradually. The gale of defections into its fold gave it a boost. We are in all parts of the federation. We are coming and will be there,” he declared. Aniebonam said that NNPP had been making waves in some parts of the Southwest, Southeast and South south, saying that the party would soon roll out its campaign strategy. On how NNPP intended to get credible candidates to fly the party’s tickets in 2023, Aniebonam said that there would be investigative procedure that would look at aspirants’ track record of integrity, capacity and experience. He said  the party would be presenting candidates committed to bequeathing to Nigeria enduring infrastructure, economy and peaceful existence. “A cardinal policy of the NNPP is to sit the people of Nigeria down to look at the issue of fiscal federalism and the need to live in peace,” he said. The NNPP founder called on the media to be bold toward building a Nigeria that would work for all. On the agitation for Igbo Presidency, Aniebonam said that the two major political parties that had such internal arrangement must respect that gentleman agreement and implement it. “The PDP and APC have been in power over time and should be faithful to their zoning arrangement. “In the NNPP, zoning is not our priority. We have never tasted power, we do not even know what is zoning. “As far as we are concerned, we are in search of a person that can make us show Nigerians that those things that have been our problems over the  years can be resolved.” He said that political leaders in Nigeria should be conscious and passionate about the children while also prioritising fairness, justice, equity and fear of God. Aniebonam said that the pulse of the nation required someone to rescue the masses in 2023. The NNPP founder said: “Who comes to lead us now and bring us out from where we are should be what will be in the mind of a patriotic Nigerian. “The person that has that divine calling to salvage Nigeria from its challenges. That is what should occupy the mind of a patriot. “With the state of the nation now, Nigeria needs to be salvaged. “When you look at Nigeria, you must be equitable, fair and just to every ethnic group. “What we need is a great leader who is courageous enough to sit down and invite all the critical stakeholders that made up Nigeria in a roundtable, and look at how to keep Nigeria working and going. That’s is the way out.” The NNPP leader said there was  need to tinker tinker with the nation’s constitution, and suggested the need for Nigerians to give themselves a brand new constitution that would resolve all issues. Aniebonam decried the security situation, inflation and unemployment in the country, and alleged that conspiracy at some quarters was responsible for the lingering insecurity. “We have to look at the issues critically. With state police, proper profiling of people and involvement of traditional institutions, the situation can be resolved. “If we want to do away with insecurity, it requires leadership and decisiveness. We need a divinely courageous man to make decisions. “If there is support to the royal highnesses as chief security officers of a town, and we profile everybody living in our domain, insecurity will stop,” he said.

    2023: NNPP calls for prayers for divine direction

      The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) has urged Muslims to use the occasion of this year Eid-el-Fitr to pray to God to guide Nigeria as it moves towards the 2023 general elections.

    The party, in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Agbo Major, on Sunday in Abuja, felicitated Muslims in the country on the occasion of the 2023 Eid-el-Fitri festival marking the successful conclusion of the Ramadan fasting.

    He said that no doubt that Muslims, who participated in the month-long fasting attracted to themselves the blessings, forgiveness, mercy, love, joy and preservation of Allah associated with the month.

    “It is obvious that our Muslim compatriots used the occasion to pray for peace, unity, love, tolerance and prosperity of the nation.

    “The state of the nation needs the collective prayers, perseverance and patriotism of all Nigerians to redirect the ship of the nation from its perilous course to the path of rectitude, progress, development and advancement as we march towards the crucial 2023 general elections, he said.”

    Major also saluted the nation’s work force as workers celebrated this year’s May Day, describing them as dynamic, vibrant, progressive and patriotic.

    He said that the NNPP identified with workers in the collective efforts at building a strong, virile, progressive, prosperous and decent democratic society.

    “The great Nigerian workers are the best in Africa and among the best in the world.

    “They are the pride of the nation whose exceptional resilience, patriotism, intellectual ability, managerial acumen, tenacity and sagacity of purpose have fostered unity and stabilised the polity.

    “The Nigerian workers demonstrated their love for the fatherland in the struggle for independence where they resisted the British colonial masters through calculated industrial actions.

    “They opposed obnoxious military decrees and actions that undermined the wellbeing of Nigerian people and unity of the nation which ushered the democratic freedom the citizenry enjoys today,” he said.

    Major said that Nigerian workers had contributed enormously to the growth of the nation in spite enormous challenges.

    He said it was time to protect and reward the workers in tandem with Section 14(2) b of the 1999 Constitution (as amended) which provided that the security and welfare of the people should be the primary purpose of government.

    “Civil servants work so hard, earn so little and owed so much. Enough of this oppression of fellow compatriots.

    “The current minimum wage of N30,000 is not applicable today due to high cost of living that has made life unbearable for most Nigerians, particularly civil servants,” he said.

    Major said that the free fall of the naira exchange rate contributed to the country’s economic challenges.

    He called on state governments to pay all outstanding salaries owed workers this month, saying the era of owing workers while top public office holders lived in luxury from looted funds was over.

    He said that the NNPP, if elected into power in the 2023 presidential election, would make workers and all Nigerians welfare a top priority.

    He said that the NNPP also demanded immediate payment of the pensions and gratuities of the nation’s retirees.

    “It is unfair, unjust and wicked to owe retired workers billions of naira due to them having spent their productive years in service to the fatherland. It is unacceptable and despicable. The labour of our heroes past shall not be in vain,” he said.

    He also called on the Federal Government to quickly resolve lingering issues with the Academic Staff Union of Universities and honour agreements with the union.

    This, according to Major, will to end the elongated strike that has undermined the nation’s educational advancement and led students to crimes, thus worsening insecurity in the country.

    Major, who said that the upcoming 2023 general elections would be a redefining moment for Nigeria, said that the NNPP called for issues-based campaigns.

    He urged politicians to eschew politics of bitterness and brigandage that had stalked the nation’s frail democracy.

    Major urged the Independent National Electoral Commission to provide a level-playing field to all political parties and their candidates in all elections, saying that was the only way to safeguard the nation’s hard earned democracy.

    He also condemned the recent National Drug Law Enforcement Agency’s proposal for drug integrity test on aspirants vying for various offices in the 2023 general elections.

    Major described it as ill-conceived, a joke taken too far and mockery of the country’s frail democracy.

    “It is inconsistent with electoral laws and suggests that politicians are drug addicts who cannot be trusted to hold elective offices. NNPP strongly condemns it and will not tolerate it.

    “Any proposal outside the clear provisions of the 1999 Constitution, Electoral Act, INEC guidelines and our party constitution is void and of no effect whatsoever, he said”

    2023: Group drums support for Kwankwaso

    A group, Movement for the Sustenance of Buhari Legacies (MSBL), says Dr Rabiu Kwankaso, a former governor of Kano State will meet the expectations of Nigerians if given the opportunity to lead the country in 2023. Mr Muftau Hassan, the National Coordinator of the movement, told newsmen in Lagos on Saturday that Kwankaso was the most competent of all the presidential aspirants to move the country forward. He described the former governor as an impactful leader, who gave a good account of himself while he was governor of Kano state and Minister of Defence. Hassan said Kwankaso, who recently defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) was the answer to the country’s challenges. The coordinator said that though, members of the group belong to the APC, the group believed that competence, and not party affiliation, should determine the next president of Nigeria, hence its endorsement of Kwankaso. He noted that all other presidential aspirants both in APC and PDP do not have Kwankwaso’s sterling qualities. “Where do we look for redemption? After pondering for a long time, it is clear that the only option is Dr Musa Kwankaso from NNPP, a retired civil servant, a former governor of Kano State, a former Defence Minister, and a one-time member of the Senate. “We realised that he is the only presidential aspirant that possesses the qualities to steer the affairs of the country at this trying period,” he said. Hassan, who noted that President Muhammadu Buhari had tried his best to fulfill his campaign promises, said Kwankwaso would actualise the Nigeria of everyone’s dream if elected president. He said Kwankwaso had the experience and the capacity to tackle the security challenges facing the country and would restore peace to Nigeria if elected. According to the coordinator, the country needs someone like Kwankwaso to put the economy in shape. “Kwankwaso did well as the governor of Kano. The state fared well when he was governor. “He gave scholarships to students to study overseas, he did so much to ensure the state was secure and grew the state’s economy exponentially”, he said. He described Kwankwaso as a patriotic Nigerian, committed to the progress of the country. “Kwankwaso is faithful, loyal, and honest; he serves Nigeria with all his strengths, and defends her honour and glory. “With these and many more, we hereby resolve to assiduously work towards the emergence of Dr Rabiu Kwankwaso as the next president of Nigeria,” he said. (NAN) Source Credit: NAN

    APC high cost of nomination forms’ll disenfranchise Nigerians- PDP, NNPP

    The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the All Progressives Congress (APC) high cost for nomination and expression of interest forms for elective positions for 2023 has disenfranchised many Nigerians. The PDP National Chairman, Sen. Iyorchia Ayu stated this in a statement on Thursday in Abuja The APC has pegged its nomination fees for president for N100 million, Governor for 50 million, Senate-N20 million, House of Representatives- N10 million, and State House of Assembly – two million naira. Ayu in a statement by his Special Adviser on Communication and Strategy, Simon Imobo-Tswam, said such price did not take into factor the economy situation and the suffering of Nigerians. Ayu added that the price did not also reflect APC’s preaching for “Equal Opportunity”. “This has disenfranchised thousands of Nigeria youths, and dashed the hopes of millions of Nigerian youths, who applauded signing of the Not Too Young To Run Bill into law in 2018. “It is most insensitive, and mind-boggling. In fact, all those buying the N100m and N50m nomination forms should be investigated for suspected fraud. “We, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), are different. We are a mass movement for the Nigerian people. This is why our nomination fees are soft and democratic,” Ayu said. Similarly, the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Agbo Major, has described the APC nomination forms fees for 2023 general elections as outrageous. Major said that the fees were unfair, unjust, despicable and insensitive to the plights of Nigerians He said selling forms to the highest bidder, would encourage godfatherism. “It will shut out patriotic and resourceful aspirants particularly women, youth and those with disability to continue its infamous recycling of retired and tired party stalwarts with no agenda for a better Nigeria. He also called on anti-graft agencies of the country to thoroughly investigate the source of income of any person who purchases the party nomination form. “ This is the only way the nation’s electoral process will be sanitised of money politics that has imposed clueless leaders on the populace. “The consequence is the lingering political upheavals, insecurity, economic depression, moral decadence, religious disharmony and ethnic division across the country.” Agbo called on Nigerians to rally support for NNPP in the 2023 general elections.(NAN) Source Credit: NAN
