Lt. Gen. Theophilus Danjuma (retd.)
Friday Olokor , Abuja
Few months to the 2019 general elections , a coalition of Christian leaders under the aegis of National Christian Elders Forum has asked Nigerians not to vote for the All Progressives Congress and the Peoples Democratic Party , describing the parties as “ two evils. ”
The group also faulted the current political composition of Nigeria , saying it was structured to favour one ethnic nationality and the supremacy of one religion over others.
The National Chairman of the NCEF , Solomon Asemota (SAN ), made the position of the group known during a press conference he jointly addressed with the NCEF Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of Christian Socialist Movement of Nigeria , Bosun Emmanuel .
Strike : FG , ASUU hold another crucial meeting today
NCEF has as members a former Minister of Defence, Lt . Gen . Theophilus Danjuma (retd . ); Prof . Joseph Otubu , Gen . Joshua Dogonyaro (retd . ), Archbishop Magnus Atilade , Dr Kate Okpareke , Dr Ayo Abifarin , Gen . Zamani Lekwot (retd . ), Elder Moses Ihonde , Elder Nat Okoro and Elder Matthew Owojaiye .
Others are Justice Kalajine Anigbogu (retd . ) , Elder Shyngle Wigwe , DIG P . L . Dabup , Sir John Bagu , Dr Saleh Hussaini , Elder Mike Orobator , Justice James Ogebe ( retd. ), Dr Chukwuemeka Ezeife, Chief Debo Omotosho , Dame Priscilla Kuye , Dr S. D . Gani , Mrs Osaretin Demuren, and Prof . Yussuf Turaki .
Asemota said , “ Nigerians must begin to clamour for new candidates and new political parties . It is not too late to mobilise and dismiss the current political class that devalued naira by over 1 , 600 per cent from 1999 to 2018 and , at the same period , increased the price of fuel by 625 per cent.
“Jointly , the PDP and the APC impoverished and pauperised Nigerians and turned the country into the poverty capital of the world . It makes sense to reject the two frontline parties , the APC and the PDP, for lack of credible performance .
“We are persuaded that the nation should feel compelled , within the next few months , to look in another direction for its salvation . If that is not done , Nigerians would have willingly jumped from the fire into the furnace . We are already sensitised as to what is ahead with the slogan – ‘ two evils.’ NCEF is convinced that if Nigerians are truly desirous of good governance , then all Nigerians have need to be diligent to look outside of these two major parties. ”
On the need to restructure Nigeria , he said , “ The determination of a minority group to transform Nigeria into its colony is responsible for the chaos in the country
