China’s communist party a model for Nigeria – Shehu Sani
The chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign and Domestic Debts, Senator Shehu Sani, has extolled the Communist Party of China (CPC), describing it as a role model for political parties in Nigeria.
The lawmaker, who also doubles as vice chairman, Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, was speaking during the commemoration of the CPC’s 95th anniversary in Abuja.
Sani said apart from surviving for over nine decades, the CPC played a leading role in the socio-political and economic development of the most populous country in the world which, according to him, should be an inspiration to Nigeria.
Sani, therefore, advocated that political perspective in the country, and indeed Africa, should be guided by principles and ideology, noting that parties in the continent could not last because they were not founded on ideology.
He said having political parties with no clear ideology made it easier for an individual to be a member of one party in the morning and another in the evening. That, he noted, hindered political development in the country.
