A careful review of the activities of the 9th Assembly since inauguration, showed that, the Red Chamber under the leadership of Alhaji Ahmed Ibrahim Lawan does not have the interest of Nigerians at heart. It is too unfortunate that the Nigerian Project has entered into another canoe of political Rape in the hands of this set of Creatures.
The Nigeria community movement Party (NCMP) CONDEMNED in its entirety the fraudulently manipulated and undemocratic move of the Senate to strategically destroy our collective existence, and stampede Freedom of Association and ability of Nigerians to question the integrity of Government as clearly guaranteed under Section 40 of the CFRN, 1999 (as amended). This is provoking, ambiguous, inimical, undemocratic and unpatriotic move of the Senate stands against the weight of any known law and the Rule of Law, which is the beam of any successful nation.
The 9th Assembly should take notice that, nobody sitting in that chamber became a senator of the Federal Republic without Political Parties, it becomes ridiculous therefore, to cripple the same vehicles that brought you to power in colouration obviously laced by personal aggrandizement.
We doubt if some members of the Senate under the current administration would have been sitting and sleeping in the Red Chamber as it is often noticed if Nigeria has operated a 2 or 5 Party System as blindly advocated.
The 9th Assembly should spell out their fears, as the hitherto voiceless and constraint Nigerians are now having platforms to make their statement known. Why being afraid of a possible change in the narrative as year 2023 springs around.
Since Nigerians now have the opportunity to settle down for credible political parties, that will promote and truly protect the interest of the masses because of the poor performance of the (2) regular Actors, the is need for the Upper Legislature to guide the Institutions of Political Parties jealously.
A reduction in the number of Political Parties to 5 is never a solution rather a shameful ambition and should not be nursed by an Arm of Government, which by its nature cannot function optimally without political parties.
The Senator Lawan led Senate should profess examplerary qualities since it is being headed by a season politician with more than a decade wealth of experience in Legislative activism rather than chasing shadows, that are not prioritized among numerous obstacles bedeviling our dear Nation at this current time.
The 9th Assembly should be rest assured that no matter how tough they plagued Nigerians with irrational Bills like imposition of huge taxes on DSTV/GSM end users, Nigerians will prevail and win.
They should also know that evidence abounds of their role as products of political parties that destroyed the credibility of our Electoral Process and the image of INEC in the 2019 General Elections.
Some of them sitted in that chamber today were alleged to have forcefully made INEC Staff announced them as winners, some were even delayed in giving Certificates of Return due to the unwholesome attitude of their parties and candidates in the last Elections.
There is the need for the National Assembly to stop been petty, but professional in their approach to strengthen our Democracy. They should not use their selfish ambitions and interest to destroy what was built for the collective well-being of all Nigerians. It is unconstitutional, absolutely undemocratic and an attempt to steal away our voices.
The Red Chamber should preoccupy itself on the process of reviewing the Electoral Act based on the experiences gathered in the last elections, it should also be pro-active to solving our electoral problems. Instead of looking into issues with intent to reduce political competitiveness in a democratic system.
NCMP calls on all Nigerians to resist the inglorious move of the Senate to silence the emergence of the children of nobody in our Political Landscape. It is so glaring that the 9th Assembly is not sleeping in its approach to incapacitate Nigerians from questioning it, as an integral part of the Executive Arm of Government, a fact well cried and feared during the emergence of its Principal Officers. But it is too late for the Red Chamber because, Nigerians are very much abreast with the Socio-political realities that are on ground as we gradually sail into 2023.
We must stand together to solve our problems by ourselves. It has always been the ambition of the Political Elites to continually reduce the strength of the masses to nothing and destroying our freedom of expressions and association.
80% of Political Parties registered today came to fruition due to the failed existence of the other (2) known recipes that ruled us for years without any appreciable impact to show for it.
Our members put resources together to register NCMP hoping that with our ideologies, we would thrive enough to convince Nigerians to stand up and defend their other land and our people through this credible political platform. We do more of sacrifice in the interest of Nigerians and Nigeria that has been robbed and battered by unpatriotic politicians.
We can no longer fold our arms and continue to watch this 9th Assembly destroy the fundamental principles of our corporate existence as a people.
The 9th Assembly should stand up to its responsibility and do more to truly look into the challenges facing the Police force, the DSS, the Nigerian armed forces, NAVAL, NIA, EFCC, ICPC etc. and help in building laws that will enhance the effectiveness and help our economy to grow.
The immigration, customs, NSCDC, FRSC etc. should be your challenge, we have 4 legal borders and above one thousand porous borders in Nigeria and you expect the country to grow.
Deal with unemployment, bad educational systems, poverty, dont pretend that you do not see or hear or read the true pains of Nigerians, above all the Red Chamber should initiate a bill to cure the inadequacy in the number of Police Prosecutors in FCT since the enactment of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act in 2015. Sadly to know that FCT has only (14) Prosecutors, who are Lawyers, having a daily task of prosecuting over 6 to 7 cases on saturated dairies across courts of distance of 40 to 60 miles away from one another. This situation has led to striking of cases for want of diligent Prosecution thereby leading to jungle justice around suburbs.
This should be the concern of the 9th Assembly.
Not also forgetting the danger associated with bad roads across the country, taking into cognizance the total statistics of how many Nigerians are dead, still dying on a daily basis due to worst roads across the country.
Why bothered about our platforms to associate politically? Why do you see Political Parties as a threat when you should be concern about the fraudulent budget of Nigeria that doesn’t reflect the actual challenges and true solutions to our problems. The budget of Nigeria does not reflect the true nature of our existence, the Will of the people, and the sincere and transparent solutions to our problems of many years.
Why are you not concerned about the reduction of number of security men you have as personal protection.
The 9th Assembly should pass a Law that will truly reflect a befitting welfare package for the Nigerian Police Force and other security agencies, be bothered and concerned about the children of the soldiers, Police, DSS etc. Formulate Laws that will cater for them, reduce the amount of your allowances and add to the welfare of our security Agencies and make them independent of government, be concerned about the lives and wellbeing of all Nigerian civil servant, look at the bills and laws that will enhance their effectiveness and efficiency, this will generate more revenue for the government.
Ensure a sincere Independent of the Judiciary and check the current Unitary System of appointment of our Judicial Officers and Justices of our Superior Courts of Record to make every citizen irrespective of status be equally to law.
It is very revealing that the 9TH Assembly needs help of Nigerians to navigate it conducts and bearing towards the true needs and yearnings of Nigerians. This 9th Assembly lacks knowledge of what we are going through on a daily basis, this Red Chamber is not informed of the errors in our Health Sector, financial institutions, security institutions, and host of other Ministries and Commissions that are just working as it should be and proffer policy solutions to the challenges.
Why not sponsoring Bills to know the exact state of the Treasury Single Account and Recovery Loots since APC Government came on board?
NCMP therefore, implores Nigerians to do well by holding it representatives in the Upper Chamber and Lower Chamber accountable at your various constituencies , do more to note down your constituency challenges and pass them across to the National Assembly so that it can be more effective and efficient.
NCMP is using this medium to call on all National Chairmen of Political Parties to mobilize en mass all members of their parties and fellow Nigerians and lovers of democracy to stand up against this purported daylight rape of our Freedom of Association and make sure that the voice of the children of the poor masses is not silenced.
It should be rather reversed that the Red Assembly with a lot of unserious and unconcerned leaders of different political interest be reduced in its population of senators per constituencies or outright scrapped. This is the kind of move Nigerians get when Strangers are voted into the Law Making Body. The Red Chamber is filled with very old and inexperienced strangers who know nothing about the Nigerian Project and has no plan to make Nigeria a better place for us all.
NCMP, totally condemned this move, it is against our constitution, against the natural law of humanity to disassociate people of this same note from been together, it is a shameful approach to our democracy, it is hostility in its raw form, it encourages political segregation. Political Parties do not get funding or incentive from government or Senate or any agency of government, it funded by our members’ sweat and contribution.
The body language of the 9th assembly shows that it is afraid of what become of them in 2023 if other political parties could get their ideologies to the grassroots, a lot of the so called senators may not return and as such you are making serious moves to destroy the political platforms that can give opportunities to individuals who have passion to truly impact Nigeria and Nigerians positively, an attempt to reduce the number of political parties to five is an attempt to reduce the strength of positive minded Nigerians who may want to show interest in one political office or the other in 2023.
The 9th assembly should stop playing with the political future of this country and be truly democratic in it approach.
