The founder of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Dr Boniface Aniebonam has affirmed that the party will usher in a new nation where peace and traqulity will reign.
At a Round-Table Meeting with members of Maritime Journalists Association of Nigeria, MAJAN, in Lagos, Aniebonam said: “The reason is that the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) which was founded about 21 years ago attempt to reinvent Nigeria and give a direction. “Within this period I participated my page, so is almost that my is job is concluded by given it a platform especially when Kwankwanso moved into the party. He has capacity I believed and to do justice to the concept of New Nigeria Peoples Party.
He said: “I remained the founder of the party, I remained the spiritual leader, I remained the Chairman, Board of Trustee of the party. And right now I played a kind of Supervisory role adding to the fact that age is no more an advantage and also allow the younger ones to take responsibility. Aniebonam declared.
Over the issue of social media, he said “Propaganda is part of the system. We don’t have to call police when fight has not started and we just concluded our primaries and every political parties are not fashioning out their modules operandi on how to go into campaign but INEC has to come out and say this is the time.
But be rest assured as the spiritual leader of NNPP and founder of. NNPP, as Chairman, Board of Trustees I have already given a directive in that regard. We must engaged the society in a very peaceful manner. Moreso, we must be constructive whenever we want to do it.
I once so say that the state of the nation is an eye opener to every Nigerian. This is not the time to apportion blame to anybody because it is not adding value whether is APC, as PDP as the case may be. Leave that to the electorate and that had to be with their voters card.
“But now that we are talking about new Nigeria all of us must join hands and that is what I think is going on now the youth are reacting because they believed their future are not been good as it were before.
While responding to the reason why he said ‘I am the spiritual leader of NNPP’
Dr. Aniebonam said “I am the one that received divine message from the above to set up this political party and that this party will provide Nigeria with a great leader”
“I am not a politician. The concept of politics in Nigeria is to the extent that it may nor be trust worthy They said things they don’t do it, they makes promises they don’t fulfill it and that is parts of the reasons the youth of this country are reacting.
“Now this very particular party, the name, the logo are given to me in that dream. The name, New Nigeria Peoples Party. I remembered that you cannot go into position of authority with election without belonging to a political party.
And the logo of the party, during voting it is the logo of the party you checked and name and our logo is ‘Basket of Truths’. If you take a second look you will know its divine.
Now, my introduction now as the Spiritual Leader does it not showed you a divine gift. That divine gift has to do with the love of God. You don’t have power to condemn. You are not God, you are not judge why do you dabble into it.
“Am also given a direction don’t go into something abusing, mudslinging, blackmailing anybody because you want win election. Discuss issues as it affect the society. Engaged in constructive matters
“And that is the aspect you see in Kwankwanso.
Aniebonam responded to the issue of coalition between NNPP and LABOUR and he reiterated that “the management has taken a decision and I also told you if it is not late it would have been an easy process of getting power wherein Kwankwanso and Peter Obi came together and form a much much stronger alliance. Whoever will step down will should be between them and the party. But we started late.”
“If you want to know New Nigeria Peoples Party did not ask for alliance. The alliance issue came up When Dr. Doyin Okupe, Victor Umeh and some others visited Kwankwanso in Abuja and they came with the idea of alliance. Immediately Kwankwanso bought into it and set up a small committee. Nigerians would have loved that to happen, but at that point Labour Party has grown more than Obi. At that point New Nigeria Peoples party has grown over Kwankwanso.
“But whatever happens in life God is in control. That the outcome of that collapse has grown a better opportunity in Nigeria where multiparty system will actualise, the essence of multiparty is realised.
“I am sure by the end of this election in 2023, if you get to the house a lots of NNPP will be there, LABOUR, PDP, APC will be there. And so the issue of State PPolice, True Federalism, looking at the constitution of Nigeria will be discussed.
On the issue of transformation NNPP will bring to maritime industry. “Aniebonam added that very soon Kwankwanso himself will come to address the maritime operators. That day tell him what you want and that will bring the social contract between maritime operators and NNPP.”
The founder of NNPP also implored all Nigerians that ” So all of us let’s work so that it will be resolved. We can’t resolve this problems if we continued to just stayed and be watching this people. I am telling you we have to get inside.
“I enjoined all of you to join the movement, join Kwankwanso of New Nigeria Peoples party let’s go work.” He declared.
According to the founder, NAGAFF, over the recent development in maritime Industry and the areas of concern for the for him
Dr. Aniebonam said ” for me as far as Transport is concerned the Council for the Regulations of Freight Forwarders is the heart bits of the port administration. Freight Forwarders are the arteries of the nation because they occupied major aspect of port management.
“CRFFN is not an agency of the government. Sambo should call those concerns and investigate whether CRFFN originally is meant to be an agency of the government. Let him writes his name in gold. Whether in the next seven months as the case may be, that seven months can help him to leave an indelible mark for him to be remembered.”
“We cannot continued to waste government money. CRFFN is not achieving its mandate which the honourable members of National Assembly sat down to make that Act of Regulations and over night it was turned upside down.
“They misinterpreted the court rulings that CRFFN is an agency of the government. They grapped it and begin to propel it in that way. It is not good. He added
