A member of the Board of Trustee (BoT) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Buba Galadima, has campaigned openly in Abuja for one of the newly registered political party, the National Rescue Movement (NRM).
During the formal launching of the party, he urged Nigerians to join and believe in the party.
“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, stated that the APC has fallen short of the expectations of Nigerians.
“Today, the bind of unity of the country is under intense strain. Strident agitations of all kinds from several quarters suggest the balkanization 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,” Dansadau said.
