The Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party, PRP Falalu Bello has inaugurated three committees for the repositioning of the party.
Bello while inaugurating the three committees in Abuja over the weekend, said “It is with a view to repositioning the PRP for greater success in the Nigeria political space that the National Executive(NEC) of the party at its 62nd meeting in Kaduna on 22nd June, 2019 resolved to set up the three committees of SWOT Analysis, Membership Drive and Finance and Funding.”
He said the committees are to advice the party on the way forward adding that, “undoubtedly, the PRP has its strength, its weaknesses and exist in the midst of opportunities but with challenges. A critical analysis of these, backed by effective membership drive and funding mechanism would most likely result in greater performace in years ahead.”
The committees inaugurated include the SWOT Analysis Committee, Membership Mobilisation Committee and the Finance and Funding Committee.
Professor Attahiru Jega heads the SWOT Analysis Committee.
Jega who recently joined the PRP is listed among the prominent Northerners to reposition the party against the All Progressives Congress (APC) and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 election.
The publisher and Chairman of the Trust Group of Newspapers, Kabiru Yusuf is also part of the team to reposition the PRP.
Other are Professor Momodu Kassim Momodu. Dr. George Kwanashie, Ayo Sando, Dr. Obi Osisiogwu and Professor Nath Abraham.
The Membership Mobilisation Committee is headed by Alhaji Sule Mohammed with the Group Managing Director of Leadership Newspapers, Abdul Gombe, as a member among others, while Alhaji Falalu Bello is the Chairman for the Finance and Funding Committee with other six members.
Bello expressed confidence that the heads of the committees and their members amply possess the competencies, the commitments and the willingness to contribute to the honorable task of repositioning the PRP for the task of leading the struggle for the material and social progress of Nigeria in this regard.
The PRP chairman noted that, “After the second Republic, the PRP went through many turbulent political storms, both external and internal, which led not only to a decline in its organisational effectiveness, but also the expensiveness of its political base. The increasing impoverishment of the most of the Nigeria populace, the rising profile of money in the nation’s political process, and the denudation of the intellectual and ideological behavior of the Party all weakened its organizational effectiveness. Yet, despite these set-backs, the PRP has had the resilience to keep going.”
He congratulated the committee members for accepting to serve and also thanked them for their support and sympathy of the PRP.
“ Now is the time to mobilize to harvest this support and turn it into a palpable political capital. I am sure we will get there to save this nation of over 20 locust years,” he charged them.
