They all spoke at a book launch and a symposium titled: “2015 and Beyond: The Citizens’ agenda and Action Plan” which was organised by Prof. Remi Sonaiya.
Sagay said the two major parties in Nigeria are not too different from each other, especially in ideologies.
“Since we have all agreed that both APC and PDP are the same and it would be difficult between now and 2015 to have a new platform that
may be strong enough, I think we should watch out for credibility on the part of their presidential candidates. The party that presents us with a more credible presidential candidate should get out votes,” Sagay said.
He said after the elections, the civil rights community can proceed by identifying good people and establishing a more credible platform.
In his speech, Galadima Liman, said getting a credible presidential candidate has now become a task for all Nigerians.
“If as an individual in 2007, I could garner over 21,000 in a presidential election within 10 days and 8,000 of that votes came from
Lagos, it only shows Nigerians can mobilise for a credible presidential candidate if given the chance,” Liman said.
Earlier in her address, the convener, Prof. Sonaiya, said the summit was held to examine options open to Nigerians “since major political platforms appear to be failing in providing good governance”.
