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.


   

 

 

"Where despair and hopelessness exist, those who have the ability to take action have the moral responsibility to take action to help those who live on the bare edge of survival.  And democracy is more than the creed of our country, it is the inborn hope of our humanity, an ideal we must carry, a trust we must bear and pass along. And even after all these years, we have a long way yet to travel, that is why we must all be involved ..."  - Baba J Adamu

 

FUTURE OF ICT IN NIGERIA
"Today, Nigerian ICT sector is at the cross roads. The direction we choose will determine not just our future but also the legacy we leave behind for future generations of knowledge workers in this country, who have the creativity to dream impossible dreams and the determination to translate those dreams into reality"...
- Baba J Adamu

“Given the emergence of new regional dynamics in development policy and practice, Arewa region MUST fine-tune current regional development perspectives and to develop new ones that are not only more in sync with the present and future global context but with the governance systems being currently adopted that are becoming more and more decentralized and grassroots oriented. States Governors within the Arewa region must come together to create and adopt the Arewa Regional Economic Plan with emphasis on a balanced approach to development and opportunity for all diversity irrespective of one’s tribe, social class, religious belief and even political affiliation; and establish targets for economic growth of the entire region taking advantage of our Demographic Shifts, which will fuel the growth of new sectors, markets, and service lines in our communities. The ability of our diversity to build strength and unity is the power that will propel the region and consequently, the Nigerian industry, into new dimensions of performance and inclusive growth. Catalyzing Inclusive Growth Through ICT-enabled solutions in healthcare, education, financial services and public services can drive socio-economic development and inclusion of more than 30 million citizens each year, faster, cheaper and more effectively than traditional models. The economic plan should be built on current regional opportunities, collaboration and innovation linking States macroeconomic models with regional development and economic plan termed: Regional Econometric Model”President ACRD
