How we had ran­cour-free na­tional con­ven­tion – ANRP

Daily Trust - - POLITICS - By Fidelis Mac-Leva

The Abun­dant Nige­ria Re­newal Party (ANRP) has said its na­tional con­ven­tion held on Fe­bru­ary 17, 2018, was suc­cess­ful and ran­cour-free be­cause it ac­corded all its regis­tered mem­bers equal op­por­tu­ni­ties to vie for po­si­tions with­out re­crim­i­na­tion.

Na­tional Chair­man of ANRP, Tope Fa­sua, who led a del­e­ga­tion of the party ex­ec­u­tives on a visit to Daily Trust Cor­po­rate Head­quar­ters yes­ter­day, said un­like what ob­tained dur­ing the con­ven­tions of other po­lit­i­cal par­ties in Nige­ria, theirs did not wit­ness any bick­er­ing be­cause of the trans­par­ent man­ner in which it was con­ducted.

He said the ANRP had also con­ducted suc­cess­ful con­gresses in 32 states of the coun­try, adding that the party’s mem­ber­ship drive had al­ready at­tracted over mem­bers across the coun­try.

De­scrib­ing the ANRP as youth­cen­tric, Fa­sua said the party was not only con­cerned about win­ning elec­tions, but also ef­fect­ing at­ti­tu­di­nal change among Nige­ri­ans, es­pe­cially the youths, in or­der for them to take own­er­ship of the coun­try.

He said the party which was mainly driven by ideas would be field­ing can­di­dates into elec­tive of­fices dur­ing the 2019 gen­eral elec­tions to take over gov­er­nance from the rul­ing APC and the main op­po­si­tion PDP.

Fa­sua de­scribed Daily Trust as a cred­i­ble medium that had main­tained its in­de­pen­dence and stan­dard over the years, while seek­ing the sup­port of the news­pa­per in pro­ject­ing the ANRP’s ideals to Nige­ri­ans. 50,000
