ENUGU—The National Conscience Party, NCP, has flagged off its presidential campaigns in Enugu State, vowing to tackle corruption which it said breeds poverty and unemployment.
NCP was founded in 1994 by the late human right activist, Chief Gani Fahwehmi SAN.
While unveiling the presidential candidate before supporters at the party secretariat, the National Chairman of the party, Alhaji Yunusa Tanko, said, “NCP is the only party that fought for nonpayment of fees to Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, by political aspirants at all level. We have ensured that our democracy is sustained through articulated people oriented policies.
”The problem of the country is that our collective wealth has been diverted by a few. On assumption of office, we will work assiduously to block all lope holes where public funds are diverted from.NCP will ensure that security of live and property is achieved through education, steady power supply and creation of jobs.”
The presidential candidate, Mr. Martin Onovo, urged the electorate to cast their votes for the party, insisting that an NCP government would reduce fuel price by improved domestic crude oil refining.
He said:”We will increase minimum wage by reducing maximum wage, while maintaining the total wage bill. We will double power generation, transmission and distribution in three years.”
