As we approach the 2019 general elections, the Christian – Muslim Peace, Unity and Development Initiative of Nigeria (CM – PIN) a non-Governmental organization working in the thematic area of peace, social development and good governance in Nigeria has thrown in weight beyond the Good News Nigeria movement towards ensuring credible persons get elected into positions of leadership.
The organization which is also a non – tribal, non religious, non ethnic and non sectional/ regional has been working to support and encourage good governance through advocacy and social mobilization in Nigeria and to enhance the peaceful attitudes of the citizenry in gaining good governance, shuning money politics, bribery social and moral corruption.
The group in a statement issued by the Executive Director-CM-PIN Haruna D.Obed said, “In line with our objective for good governance, we are supporting Good News Nigeria (GNN) Movement in their work to curb out money politics and ensure good governance in Nigeria.
“As Nigerians our destiny and survival is in our hands, the earlier we wake up to this responsibility by taking a stand against nepotism, selfishness, self-will, regionalism, tribalism and religious untruthfulness, Nigeria will be back to her glory days where things worked and were for everyone.
“Our support for Good News Nigeria (GNN) project is a good development and we are in full support and are keying into their agenda”.
According to the group, “to all people of goodwill, it has become worthy of note and to commend the fore-sight of Good News Nigeria and their selfless leader Engr. Dauda John for creating this movement even though focused on one direction, but is worthy to start somewhere, we salute their courage and commitments.
“In our organization’s point of view our dear country Nigeria has had more than enough of political bigotry/money bag politicians who always feel it is their money versus the money being that of the people of Nigeria .
“As 2019 is fast approaching we must come together to champion a course that will salvage the country from the cabals, political uncertainty, corruption, God-fatherism’ and power imposition by an old generation of ungrateful humans in the political arena of this country.
“As we all come together men and women of good will, young and old with clean and sincer hearts , setting out a clear agenda with one mind, one objective and determination to bring out that one person who can be a bridge across the divides of politics, social, religious, economic, tribal, regional and other differences among Nigerians.
“We must for once present or have a consensus without sentiment, self will and self seeking attitudes. As 2019 is right around the corner, the time for action is now. We must not be complacent in our actions or in action. We must be ready to sacrifice ourselves for the future to be bright.
“So we stand with Good News Nigeria (GNN).We stand solidly behind her calling for a credible Nigerian with a good track records, whose attitude and character is not questionable and has a very good sense of judgment. A detribalize person who has concerned and respect for all religion, ethnic and social justice”.
