Description: Our Stand

In another interview, Dr. Baba Jibrin Adamu, the National Secretary of the New Democrats (ND) said that the registration of additional 22 new parties indicate a positive step towards the formation of viable consolidated parties that are well structured.

When asked if the ND will follow the steps of the NCP led by Chief Gani Fawehinmi, NAP led by Dr. Tunji Braithwaite and PRP led by Alhaji Balarabe Musa in alliance talks, the ND National Secretary Dr. Adamu said that the New Democrats will not hasten to jump into any alliances as of now, although we will be open to discuss our party priorities with the other parties. You see we are interested in  programs that works, not those that befit the aspirations of the people but that which spur building knowledge societies through providing access to the tools of empowerment, which will ensure a fairer future for all Nigerians. This will not be an easy task but ND is certainly committed towards forming a government that will invest in the future, create jobs, develop human and institutional capital for the future, and setting up favourable regimes for combating corruption, crime and social upheavals. The reason why the ND decides to make this noble commitment is the fact that we need to confront future challenges to us as a people, in a well-structured manner. That is to move beyond immediate and inherently temporary solutions, to the need for a carefully phased policy and long term approach to national development under a strong leadership.

There is right now too much economic stagnation and instability, too little investment in education and skills, and in the application of new technologies, too few opportunities to find jobs, start new businesses or become self-employed, too narrow an industrial base and too little sense of common purpose in the workplace or across the nation and finally too much crime. The ND strategic is to achieve 8-10% GDP growth, set tough inflation targets, invest in technology, education and agriculture, create a new and efficient National Health Service, significantly reduce unemployment through public investment, be tough on crime and corruption. These are our contract with the people.
