The African Democratic Congress (ADC) has kicked against the imposition of successor on the citizens by out-going political office holders.
The National Chairman of the party, Chief Ralph Nwosu, in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital, stated that it was unconstitutional for political office holders in the country to forcefully impose their successors on the people.
The ADC chairman spoke during the official unveiling of the Akwa Ibom State secretariat of the party in Uyo.
He described such action as autocratic, tyrannical, and undemocratic which he said undermines the will of the people.
Nwosu explained that the emergence of ADC is to save the country from impending collapse and insecurity occasioned by insurgents currently flooding the country.
He warned politicians against using youths as thugs to achieve their selfless interest; instead, they should prepare them for leadership.
“Our country is collapsing and may not survive few years to come, which ADC is coming to the rescue.
“We should not push our youths into thuggery, but should prepare them for leadership,” he stressed.
Nwosu maintained that ADC would take over the state Government House in 2023 due to its preparedness and wide acceptance within and beyond the state.
Also speaking, the governorship aspirant of the party in Akwa Ibom State, Ezekiel Nya-etok, lauded the people of the state for keying into the party’s philosophy of radical transparency.
Nya-etok said with his professionalism in architecture alongside a wide range of contacts, the state would witness a high level of development if elected as the governor of the state.
