ADP will make difference in Nigeria’s democracy – Chairman
The National Chairman, Action Democratic Party (ADP), Mr Yabagi Sani, said the party was determined to make a difference in the nation’s democracy.
Sani gave the assurance during the party’s workshop on Electoral Management on Saturday in Abuja.
The chairman, who lamented over the low nature of the country’s gross domestic products, said that the APD government would put Nigerians at the centre of all its developmental activities to rekindle their hope.
According to him, our GDP remains low due to lack of protection while our population continues to rise and our country have been listed as having the highest number of poor people in the world.
“We are determined as a party to make a difference in the nation.
“ADP will put Nigeria people at the centre of all developmental activities and the ADP government will have a human face in order to rekindle hope in our people.
“It will also create a new direction toward positive changes in the economic, infrastructural development, health and education,’’ he said.
He urged members of the party to defend democracy as ADP was determined to lead the struggle to refocus the nation.
“We call on our compatriots to defend this democracy; ADP is determined to lead this struggle to refocus our country.
“As we approach the ADP primaries, I reassure all our aspirants that our party will be fair and just as the primaries will be free, fair and credible.
“This is the only way we can lead by example.’’
On the elections in Ekiti and Osun states, Sani said that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) must rise to make sure elections were conducted free, fair and credible.
“The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) must rise to the challenge and save our democracy,’’ he said.
NAN reports that Sani presented to the party members an award he received from the United Nations Human Rights Commission.
While presenting the award, he said: “Today, I present to you an award given to me by the United Nations Human Rights Commission, on Sept. 13, 2018, in New York.
“According to the United Nations Human Rights Commission, I was selected for this award in recognition of my outstanding contributions to the development of our religious, economic and social cultural development.
“I was humbled by this international recognition outside the shores of Nigeria; this is clear indication that our efforts to rebuild our nation and our people for advancement in all aspects of development are being appreciated by those across the shores of Nigeria.
“This is not for me alone, I dedicate it to Almighty God, my parents and my fellow compatriots in Action Democratic Party who have toiled with me in the service of our great party,’’ he said. (NAN)
