Founder, New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) Dr. Boniface Aniebonam has called on stakeholders in the transport/maritime sector to join hands with NNPP to secure its future by voting Rabin Kwankwaso, as the next President of Nigeria come 2023.
This came as the founder of the party announced that Kwankwaso has been adopted as the sole presidential candidate to fly its flag in the 2023 general election.
Speaking at a press conference in Lagos on Friday, Aniebonam said Kwankwaso presidency will unite Nigeria and rescue it from its present economic woes.
According to him, NNPP is a divine movement, with which God has decided to intervene in the challenges bedeviling the maritime industry and the country at large.
Aniebonam, who is also the founder of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) said the mandate before Kwankwaso was to rescue Nigeria from being a consuming to a productive nation.
“It is in the public knowledge that New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) originated from the transport industry, logistics businesses and Customs facilitation. It is therefore very important that we play a major role in ensuring that NNPP emerges in the forthcoming election 2023. This has become necessary to enable us to address the industry problems from within.
“It is important to remind all of us that for the period under review the industry practitioners have been complaining about low productivity and corruption. And yet nobody is listening to us to the extent that our professional callings cannot be achieved, including job satisfaction. Therefore, we must engage the leadership of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) at the moment to extract firm commitment from them. We must therefore form a strong block and drive membership and finances as part of our contribution to the success of NNPP in 2023. It is only then we can bargain effectively with a view to securing our interest and better future.
“The good news is that the Founder of NNPP is from the transport industry and indeed the Founder of the National Association of Government Approved Freight Forwarders (NAGAFF) as well. Therefore, the reach and opportunity abound to get the attention of Senator Kwnakwaso who is the sole candidate of the party in the 2023 general election. Let us go out to mobilize all of our clients (importers, exporters, dependents and associates) and with our PVC’s on hand to raise 10 million votes for the NNPP presidential candidate.
“Indeed, the problem of Nigeria is so solvable if only leadership is divine. This is because there are no difficulties in bringing all the nationalities together to discuss how best we can live together as a people. On the aspect of economy, again we must move Nigeria from a consumption nation to a productive economy. With all our human capital and natural endowment, the welfare of the officers and men of the country are desirable to ensure an orderly nation. The resources are available to cater for social amenities, sports, youths’ development and education, etc. Indeed, God has been kind to us to live a good life but indeed corruption seems to be our bane as a human factor which is avoidable,” he said.
According to Aniebonam, NNPP commenced its operations as far back as 2002 to mobilize Nigerians in her bid to reinvent a new Nigeria of everyone’s dreams.
He said it has therefore become imperative for people to take responsibility and elect credible Nigerians in 2023 to enthrone good governance.
“It is not news to all that good governance has eluded our country for so long, leading to difficulties to earn a good life. This is remotely caused by our disrespect for the rule of law and regulations. The inability of the government to effectively enforce the laws of the land is a major factor under the circumstance and the need to restart civil order becomes imperative. Therefore, our invitation to this gathering is to seek your cooperation to educate and enlighten the greater numbers of Nigerians to take responsibility and elect credible Nigerians in the forthcoming election.
“It is common knowledge that all is not well with our country due to several reasons. The various agitations of the zones in our country, starting from matters of marginalization, bad economy to insecurity of the Nigerian state, life is generally very unfavorable to Nigerians.
“At this point, it’s obvious that God has decided to intervene in our country through the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP). To achieve this objective the need for a collective responsibility becomes inevitable to redefine Nigeria through quality leadership and good governance,” he said.
