ABUJA—National Chairman of the newly-registered party, National Rescue Movement, NRM, Senator Saidu Muhammed Dansadau, has said years of bad leadership and lack of commitment to the principles of patriotism have denied the country of direction and focus.
Dansadau, spoke in Abuja during the formal launch of the party, saying in the absence of natural disasters, Nigerian leadership had invented some man-made calamities, and through misadventures, had foisted on the country with every unimaginable vices.
According to him: “This state of affairs calls for urgent action, which must be beyond partisanship if we must rescue the country and its people from the morass in which it is currently entrapped. We will have the courage of our convictions. We will walk our talk. 2019 will be a defining moment for Nigeria. We will serve with passion and clarity of vision.
”Our purpose must converge into focus. Through hard-work and sacrifice; Nigerians will unite through common effort 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.”
