S’East ADC leaders hail Obasanjo, CNM for adopting party


The South East leaders of African Democratic Congress, ADC, have commended former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo and the leaders of Coalition for Nigeria Movement (CNM) over the adoption of the party as a vehicle for pursuit of a new Nigeria.

This was contained in a communique issued after a strategic meeting of the leaders of the party in the South-East, held in Awka to deliberate on the recent adoption of the party.

The seven-point communique read in part, “We thank Former President Obasanjo and other strategic stakeholders, who we may not be able to mention, for their wise decision to adopt the African Democratic Congress, ADC and the enormous trust they repose on the founding national Chairman of our party, Chief Okey Nwosu.

“The leaders of ADC in the South East assure all stakeholders that their trust is well placed; that they should be rest assured that our commitment and passion are in alignment with their patriotism, and good aspiration of all Nigerians.”

The party said the government of APC had failed in the core responsibilities of any government, as the security and welfare of the people had deteriorated monumentally, and that ADC would restore it when it takes over government in 2019.

The party also assured Ndigbo that it would use its platform to reintegrate the people of the South east back to mainstream national politics.

It said, “In this regards, we pledge to work and put in our best effort and resources to colour the South East with ADC. We shall use the ADC symbol of handshake to reach out to every Nigerian to bring back friendship, love, unity of purpose, and use power in our diversity to make Nigeria a model for Africa, investors haven, and the darling of the world.”
