ABUJA – The Action Democratic Party (ADP) has declared free its nomination forms for women and Persons Living with Disabilities, who might want to contest elections in the forthcoming 2019 general elections.
The move, the party said was in demonstration of its commitment to an inclusive government geared toward empowerment of women and the youth, as enshrined in its cardinal principles.
Speaking at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja, on Thursday when a governorship aspirant, Barrister Obioma Success, picked his nomination form to run for the Imo State Government House.
ADP National Organising Secretary, Dr. Lynn Olisa, said her party was poised to give direction where others have failed by providing fair political platforms to all and sundry.
While revealing progress made by ADP in membership registration drive in all the wards and polling units across the country, the party explained that it would field candidates for elections at all levels in the 2019 general elections.
Dr. James Okoroma, ADP’s National Secretary, said the party was formed to bring about the emergence of a new crop of leaders.
Alluding to collapse of governance at all levels in the country, he said the founding fathers of the country must be disappointed at what the country has turned to.
“Even in our country Nigeria, all of you will agree with me that this is not the country Zik, Balewa and Obafemi Awolowi founded. You will agree with me that ideals of these founding fathers have been betrayed and I believe that what we need now is a platform like ADP that would give room for the emergence of a new crop of leaders, who will give Nigeria a better direction,” he stated.
