Bad leadership, problem of Nigeria, insists Dansadau

The National Chairman of the newly registered party, National Rescue Movement (NRM), Senator Saidu Muhammed Dansadau, has said that accumulated years of bad leadership and lack of commitment to the principles of patriotism have the country of direction and focus thereby allowing impunity, nepotism and mediocrity to be the stumbling blocks of a once-promising nation. 

He said in the absence of natural disasters, the Nigerian leadership have invented some man-made ones and through misadventures, 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.

“This state of affairs calls for urgent action, the nature of which must be beyond partisanship, if we must rescue the country and its people from the morass in which it is currently entrapped,” he said.

Dansadau, whose party was formally launched last Saturday in Abuja, perhaps in reference to the change mantra of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) federal government, said every responsible government exists to serve the people.

“And where a political change does not secure an improvement in the lives of the people, that change has failed and the nation must be rescued from such miscued change.

“We would have the courage of our convictions. We would walk our talk. Next year will be a defining moment for Nigeria. We would serve with passion and clarity of vision. Our purpose must converge into focus.

“Through hardwork and sacrifice, the people of Nigeria will unite through common effort, in mutual responsibility, towards achieving concrete progress. We would not allow the partisanship and the narrow world-view that currently pervade the polity to strangle 
the urge to serve.

“We will build enduring alliances of ideas. Shoulder-to-shoulder, standing as a people, we would re-direct the arc of our collective destiny. It is our resolve in the NRM to do things differently and stand out 
in the crowd.

“We must restore to this nation, respect, dignity and confidence.”

Dansadau said the party was ready to contest every office in the land, from councillorship to the presidency, starting with the Ekiti and Osun governorship elections holding this year.
