2023: YPP summons presidential candidate over ‘slow campaign’

Published

on

Malik Ado-Ibrahim, presidential candidate of the Young Progressives Party (YPP), has been summoned by the party over the “slow build-up” of his activities for the 2023 elections.

Egbeola Wale-Martins, YPP national secretary, disclosed this on Sunday in a statement issued at the end of the party’s 20th national working committee (NWC) meeting in Abuja.

Ado-Ibrahim became the party’s flag bearer in June 2022 after defeating Ruby Isaac.

In the statement, Wale-Martins said the party was displeased at the slow build-up of political activities due to gaps in communication between the presidential candidate and the appropriate organs of the party.

According to NAN, he said the NWC has acknowledged the concerns of its members, supporters, and other critical stakeholders on the poor visibility of the party and its presidential candidate.

“Having done so much hitherto to build a political capital that should have made YPP the third force, the NWC therefore has directed the national secretary to summon the presidential candidate, Prince Malik Ado-Ibrahim, through official communication within 7-working days,” the statement reads.

“He is to appear and address several issues, including but not limited to his blueprint and a comprehensive campaign plan going into the 2023 presidential election, for the purpose of speedy harmonisation to avoid working at cross purposes.

“It was also unanimously agreed that the outcome of the proposed engagement would help the NWC to either embrace available strategies aimed at covering lost grounds or take difficult informed steps in the interest of the party, our members, and all Nigerians.”

The national secretary further said the NWC ratified the expulsion of Matthew Namo, the suspended Nasarawa state chairman of the party, for allegedly going incommunicado.

He added that in pursuit of justice, the NWC further mandated the legal directorate to give necessary support to all aggrieved members.

He also urged candidates running for various positions on the YPP platform to work in synergy with the party leadership across state, local government, and ward levels.

Dogara appointed PDP campaign council member — days after endorsing Atiku

Published

By

Yakubu Dogara, former speaker of the house of representatives, has been appointed a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential campaign council (PCC).

Aminu Tambuwal, director general of the PDP PCC and governor of Sokoto, announced Dogara’s appointment in a statement on Sunday.

Dogara’s appointment comes two days after he declared support for Atiku Abubakar, PDP’s standard bearer.

The Northern Leaders Consultative Forum, which Dogara is a part of, had endorsed Atiku and termed him “the best.”

It is not clear if the former speaker has renounced his membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

As a member of the APC, the former speaker of the house of representatives, who is one of the party’s leaders of the Christian faith, kicked against the Muslim-Muslim ticket adopted by the party.

Bola Tinubu, APC presidential candidate and Kashim Shettima, his running mate are both Muslims.

Members of a group of northern Christians in the APC had also expressed reservations over the Muslim-Muslim ticket of the APC, and said it would adopt a consensus candidate.

Babachir Lawal, former secretary to the government of the federation (SGF) and leader of the group, had said Obi would be the group’s choice.

Dogara, however, alongside other members of the group, distanced themselves from Lawal’s endorsement.

Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), has unveiled his manifesto.

Obi unveiled the 72-page manifesto via his Twitter handle on Sunday.

The manifesto is titled “It’s POssible: Our Pact with Nigerians”.

In the manifesto, the former Anambra governor listed seven priorities his administration would concentrate on if elected president in 2023.

Over the past few days, Obi had come under criticism in some quarters, especially among members of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for not having a manifesto.

In October, the LP presidential distanced himself from a manifesto attributed to him.

Obi had said he would personally release the LP manifesto to the public when it is ready.

In the manifesto released on Sunday, the former Anambra governor promised to move Nigeria from a consumption economy to a production-centred economy.

The LP presidential candidate said he would end banditry and insurgency if elected president.

“Restructure the polity through effective legal and institutional reforms to entrench the rule of law, aggressively fight corruption, reduce cost of governance, and establish an honest and efficient civil service,” the manifesto reads.

“Leapfrog Nigeria into the 4th Industrial Revolution (4IR) through the application of scientific and technological innovations to create a digital economy.

“Build expansive and world-class infrastructure for efficient powers supply, rail, road and air transportation, and pipeline network, through integrated public-private partnerships, and entrepreneurial public sector governance.

“Enhance the human capital of Nigerian youths for productivity and global competitiveness through investment in world-class scholarship and research, quality healthcare, and entrepreneurship education.

“Conduct an afro-centric diplomacy that protects the rights of Nigerian citizens abroad and advances the economic interests of Nigerians and Nigerian businesses in a changing world.”
