Yesterday at a short ceremony at the party’s national HQ in Abuja, I became a member of the African Democratic Congress . The ADC is one of the driving forces of an emerging Third Force that will see a merger of several parties to take power in 2023 and begin the task of rescuing and rebuilding our beleaguered country. Millions of Nigerians, disappointed by the old order of politics without governance, have been waiting impatiently for this new movement. By the Grace of God and with the support of the citizens of Nigeria we will prevail against all odds. Anyone who thinks 2023 will be a contest between APC and PDP is living in the past. The 2023 presidential election will be an epic battle between, on one side the old order of the APCPDP which has betrayed our hopes as a country after 61 years of independence with not much to show, and a new order of visionary political leadership with the will and capacity to deliver good governance to Nigeria’s long suffering citizens, on the other side. Choose your side. Just one advice: don’t waste your vote on the old order. It has delivered only misery, rigged elections, 4,000 megawatts of electricity for 200 million people, joblessness and hopelessness for our youth, and insecurity. I thank the National Chairman of ADC Chief Ralph Okey Nwosu, the National Secretary Mallam Said Abdullahi, BoT Chair Distinguished Senator Patricia Akwashiki and other party leaders and members, and look forward to our collaboration. Since its founding in 2005 and its first presidential campaign in 2007 when it fielded Prof Pat Utomi, to the 2019 election when the late Dr. Obadiah Mailafia was its presidential candidate, the ADC has shown itself consistent in its belief in the power of ideas to turn around the human condition for progress. I am proud to join ADC in this journey. The party also has a strong, nationwide grassroots presence that’ll get even better. In a symbolic indication of my desire to heal and reconcile our country should I have the honor of serving as its President, my press conference was held at the Stonehedge Hotel in Abuja. The hotel is owned by Magajin Garin Sokoto, Alhaji Hassan Marafa Danbaba , the grandson of the late Sir Ahmadu Bello (Sardauna of Sokoto) and Premier of the Northern Region, with many friends from the north, south, east and west of our country in attendance. Here, photos from the membership induction and subsequent press conference. We move!
