Alhaji Sa’idu Dansadau, the National Chairman of the National Rescue Movement (NRM) has called Nigerians not to vote for corrupt politicians in 2019.
Dansadau, a former Senator, made the call while addressing supporters of the party in Kano on Saturday.
“No corrupt politicians should be voted in the upcoming general elections in 2019; anybody found to have stolen public funds should not be allowed to hold any political office,” he said.
According to him, there was need for Nigerians to avoid politicians who don’t have the interest of the country at heart but are only interested in amassing public funds through corrupt practices.
Dansadau said his party would not give opportunity to anybody found to have record of corruption to contest for any political office under its platform.
“Kano people should lead other Nigerians in accepting and embracing the party. Only people who have strong faith in God will embrace NPM, “Dansadau said.
The National Chairman said that the party would give priority attention to youths in view of the fact that, if given the necessary mentorship, they would take the country to great heights.
He said the essence of the visit was to meet with traditional rulers, religious and community leaders as well as other stakeholders to explain the ideals of the party.
