Speaking at the event, the new national chairman of the party, Ambassador Isaac Chigozie Udeh, assured Nigerians of their resolve to tackle insecurity by ensuring massive employment opportunities for Nigerians, especially the youth.
“They have succeeded in making sure that common bread is no longer for the masses but for the rich only; fish and meat is no longer for the masses but for them and their families only,” Udeh said.
He lamented that it is very difficult for the masses to travel by road because of the unchecked insecurity in every part of the country and cost of transportation, due to unstable PMS pump prices.
Speaking earlier, the national chairman of the caretaker committee of the party, Usman Abubakar Jikamshi, who also emerged the new deputy national chairman (North), expressed joy that the party was making historic progress witnessing the democratic and orderly transfer of power from one national chairman to another.
The party’s national publicity secretary, Mr Sola Afuye, said the party had commenced the sale of expression of interest and nomination forms for all categories of positions ahead of the 2023 elections.
