Ramadan: A Time Of Devotion, Prayers For Nigeria’s Emancipation – NDCP

 

The Nigeria Democratic Congress Party NDCP has felicitated with the Nigerian Muslim Community on the occasion of the 1439AH Ramadan.

This is contained in a statement signed by NDCP Founder and Presidential Candidate, Dr Johnson Edosomwan in Abuja on Wednesday.

The party said as Ramadan is a holy month where Muslims are devout and more pious, it calls for a sober reflection especially with the situation of things in Nigeria.

Edosomwan said there is no better time than this for Nigerians most importantly Muslims to pray for lasting peace in view of the killings going on across the country.

The statement also advised Islamic faithfuls to let their prayers focus on the salvation and emancipation of the nation from the hands of the present government.

“I congratulate all Muslims on the occasion of this year’s annual Ramadan fast.”

“As we all know, our people are being killed everywhere in this country everyday by unscrupulous elements. We must then be steadfast in prayers.”

“Ramadan being a month of increase in good deeds should not also go without Nigerian Muslims praying for a successful electioneering as 2019 approaches to salvage it from the hands of the APC,” Edosomwan stated.

He also called on Islamic faithfuls to be tolerant and show love to one another as embedded in the lessons of Ramadan.

Johnson Edosomwan Wants Buhari’s Job In 2019

The Founder of a newly registered political party, the Nigeria Democratic Congress Party (NDCP), Dr Johnson Edosomwan has signified interest in taking up President Muhammadu Buhari’s job in 2019.

Edosomwan during the maiden convention of the party in Abuja said the party is ready to takeover from Buhari in 2019 with laudable programmes.
The NDCP National leader blamed corruption in every Nigeria on poor remuneration and welfare package for workers.
The party also expressed support for President Muhammadu Buhari’s move to spend $1 billion to weapons to boost the fight against insurgency in the country.

“Our vision is to unify Nigerians under a common purpose. We are here to transform the various elements of the Nigerian system, whether it is infrastructure, environment, power, economy, etc. It is our target to create millions of jobs for our youth and we have put out a manifesto that has five different components.

“These components include economic development, environmental improvement, infrastructure enhancement, jobs and wealth creation. So people you see here today are men and women who are trying to give us what needs to be included in our detailed corporate manifesto. So our goal is to implement best practices across the nation in every segment. This includes the fight against corruption.

 

“We’ve realised that a lot of people speak negatively about Nigeria and this is not because they don’t love Nigeria. They love their country so much, but they speak against the nation because so many issues have overpowered them into negativity. So what we want is for that passion to be expressed positively so that some positive things can come out of it.”

 

Edosomwan stated that if elected into office, his government would diversify the country’s economy, as Nigeria would earn more from other sources rather than just crude oil sales.

 

He added that “right now in Nigeria, there is a need for human capital development. Without adequate human capital development, infrastructure projects will not work. So empowering citizens with the right tools to get the job done is a priory for us as a party.

 

“The next thing is infrastructure and we are not just talking about roads, we are looking at high speed rails, standard airports, power generation from solar, nuclear, wind and lots more. We want to bring positive change in the lives of Nigerians. We’ve done these things in other countries, we can do it here at home.”

 

NDCP was formally approved by INEC on January 10, 2018. It already has offices across the 36 states of Nigeria.

 

“We are marching forward to get our message to Nigerians,” he added.

 

Borrowing from his experience in the United States, Edosomwan is adopting a different approach to attract more people to his party. The party had already trained state executive officers who will in turn to go back to their respective states to train others at the wards.

Dr Edosomwan also advised the president to dialogue with the National Assembly; instead of the current dog-fight over the sequence of the 2019 general elections.
“First of all, we need a government that is supported by the people and run by the people, for example; if the voice of the people says that the sequencing of the election is the right thing to do, that will be the right way to go.
“Now, if that is what they are proposing, they (legislators) need to dialogue with the president. As a Nigerian, I will recommend that you listen to the voice of the people,” stated Edosomwan.
