A member of the Board of Trustee (BoT) of the All Progressives Congress, (APC) Buba Galadima in Abuja openly campaigned for one of the newly registered political party, the National Rescue Movement (NRM) urging Nigerians to join and believe in the party.
He made the call during the formal launching of the party and presentation of its vision.
“NRM is a party that doesn’t believe in tribalism and nepotism. It is a party for Nigerians of all seasons. Senator Saidu Mohammed Dansadau is a man of integrity, a man of intellect and a fighter. For those of us who have worked with him, he is a diligent man. The NRM will do what is right for the party and our country. I, therefore, recommend the new face of politics in Nigeria,” Galadima said.
Speaking earlier the National Chairman of the party Senator Saidu Dansadau dismissed the ruling APC as a colossal failure whose performance has fallen short of expectations of Nigerians.
He said the President Muhammadu Buhari administration has failed in tackling insecurity, revamping the economy apart from fuelling mutual ethnic distrust among Nigerians.
“Today, the bind of unity of the country is under intense strain. Strident agitations of all kinds from several quarters suggest the balkanisation of the country along ethnic lines. Hitherto silent fault lines have developed into the gulf, sowing suspicion and deep distrust, shaking the foundations of our unity and threatening the peace and security of our dear country.
“Insecurity and vices of frightening shapes and dimensions assail the land. Every patriotic Nigerian believes, the nation isn’t moving in the right direction. This country has never been as divided as it is now.
“All these are manifestations of accumulated years of bad leadership and of hollow commitment to the principles of patriotism. They have robbed our country of direction or focus, allowed impunity, nepotism and mediocrity to be the blocks of a once promising nation.
“In the absence of natural disasters, our leaders have invented some man-made ones and through misadventures, have saddled the country with every imaginable vice, from wanton and dastardly killings, with no regard for the sanctity of human life, to kidnappings, armed robbery, ritual killings, insurgency and other economic despoliation,” he said.
While urging Nigerians to vote out the APC to experience a turnaround in their individual fortunes, he said the state of affairs of the nation calls for urgent action, the nature of which must be beyond partisanship to rescue the country and its people from the morass in which it is currently entrapped.
