Tobi Job……ENGR. Martins Onovo, the presidential candidate of the National Conscience Party [NCP] in the 2015 elections, has cited reasons for his resignation from the party.
In a letter addressed to the National Secretary of the party on the 4th of September 2018, he wrote “i wish to immediately resign my membership from the National Conscience Party. In the last twelve months, despite our efforts to defend the party’s universal values, it has become obvious that the management of the party has abandoned our principles, values and betrayed the legacy of Chief(Dr.) Gani Fawehinmi, SAM, SAN, LLD, which we hold very dear.
With the vicious violations of the provisions of the party constitution, financial irregularities, abuse of power, division of the NEC and sponsored factions in very many states, i can no longer tolerate the hypocrisy and perfidy presently prevailing which has led many great patriots to leave the party silently. we must fight corruption in government and elsewhere, including political parties. I restate my commitment to the universal values of Integrity, Rule of law, Justice, Service and Excellence on which the party was founded. The current management of the party has deviated from these and i must dissociate myself from such perfidy.
I thank immensely all the patriotic members of the party for their great confidence in me and i assure them that we remain committed to our values and our patriotic objectives. I urge all to accept this resignation joyfully as necessary to maintain the momentum in our commitment to birthing a new Nigeria that is United, Peaceful, Prosperous and Strong. We are marching on. God bless Nigeria.”
