Some concerned Nigerians of different professions have formed a non-partisan political group to address leadership problem in the country, ahead of the 2023 general elections.
The non-partisan political group, known as Rescue Nigeria Project, RNP, an initiative of accomplished Nigerians of various ethnic, religious and partisan background, committed to charting the course to building a better Nigeria.
National Coordinator of the group Usman Bugaje, while speaking at the group’s inaugural national caucus meeting in Abuja, said Rescue Nigeria Project was founded on the premise that the problems of Nigeria all stem from poor leadership. He added that the country was unable to exit the leadership challenge, because the leadership recruitment mechanism in its political parties was faulty.
On his part, the former Governor of Kwara State, Abdullahi Ahmed, making a presentation on RNP said the mission of the group is to reconcile and re-unite Nigeria. He also noted that it was to win and deploy political power for the purpose of nation building and national development, achieving prosperity for all.
Also, a former Minister of Education Minister Tunde Adeniran said the values upheld by Nigeria founding fathers to keep the country together were in tatters and not much had been done to restore them to ensure justice, equity, unity and focus.
