…Says “Silence is no longer an option”
The National Rescue Mission (NRM), has decried the spate of insecurity, poverty and unemployment ravaging Nigeria, stating that the country has never had it this bad since it returned to democratic rule in 1999.
The party claimed that Nigeria over the years has been governed by people who lack the fear of God to do the right thing even in the midst of abundance.
Its National Chairman, Amb. Isaac Chigozie Udeh, at a press briefing yesterday in Abuja, said: “It has never been this bad in the history of this great country.
“Nigerians are persistently living in fear, hence their future is no longer guaranteed, because what we have today in the country is politicians and not leaders.
“We no longer practice democracy which is “Government of the people by the people, for the people”. What we practice is dictator-crazy, which is “Government of the few, by the few, and for the few”.
Udeh charged Nigerians to actively participate in next year’s general elections in order to rescue the country from the clutches of poverty, insecurity, and high cost of living among others.
He specifically tasked citizens to elect candidates of NRM, whom, he claimed, possess traits of good governance.
In addition, he called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to give Nigerians a credible, freest and fairest election in 2023, so that they can write their name boldly on marble.
“On that note, I am calling all Nigerians across the country and the Diaspora to massively join National Rescue Movement, for us to enjoy the much-awaited people-oriented leadership and good governance in our country, from May 29, 2023.
“For once, let us practice true democracy in Nigeria”, he submitted.
