The New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) says the party is being repositioned to take over power at states and federal levels. This was disclosed by the National Chairman of the party, Dr. Boniface Okechukwu Aniebonam, during the just concluded emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting held at the conference hall of Rockview Hotel, Apapa, Lagos State.
Dr Boniface asserted that NNPP is as old as the People’s Democratic Party (PDP). “And to the glory of God, the Party is not only in existence, but waxing stronger. Our electoral victories in states like Bauchi, where we won Senatorial, House of Representatives, and House of Assembly seats are clear testimonies to the fact that our party is no push over and has a place in the heart of Nigerians. What we need to do now is to join hands to ensure we consolidate on these gains”.
The National Chairman thus added that this meeting gearing towards repositioning the party is one of the steps towards strategic move to ensure that the party will not only produce a vibrant presidential candidate ahead of 2023 general elections, but “we will return power to the masses by pulling up surprises and win the presidential election, and some other positions at federal and state levels”, capturing power from the ruling party.
He however lamented that the experience of the party after the Senatorial, House of Representatives and House of Assembly elections, “has shown that democracy in Nigeria is still facing serious challenges as a result of the determination of some powerful Nigerians to rubbish the principle of the sanctity of the ballot papers, by brazenly denying us our victories”, stressing further that the party is better prepared now to ensure that whatever votes casts for the candidates now will be well followed up to ensure the votes count and NNPP candidates are declared winners according to the wish of the electorates.
“With the help of God, the repositioning of the party and the strategic planning; we are sure of not only wining the presidential election by 2023, but we will also win some Senatorial, House of Representatives, House of Assembly at different states and gubernatorial elections beginning from the forth coming Anambra 2021 where we have a vibrant candidate with intimidating credentials in person of Sir Emeka Leonard Ohajimkpo.
“Nevertheless, if during the discharge of our duties people have stepped on one anothers’ toes, let’s forgive, learn from past mistakes and move ahead.
“What is certain is to inform the gathering that NNPP is a movement with clear mission to provide the greatest leadership in Nigeria, therefore, it’s leadership must be divine to the glory of God,” he concluded.
