Rising from a series of plenary sessions and after careful deliberation and review of all candidates, we the Sovereign National Party and the party of Nigeria’s youth hereby indubitably declare our full support for the candidacy of retired General Muhammadu Buhari and Pastor Yemi Osinbajo for the posts of President and Vice respectively in the upcoming presidential elections.
Nigeria’s youth have chosen Integrity and Wisdom for 2015.
While postponing our plans as a party to directly represent ourselves as youth at all levels of national politics, a decision we reluctantly took as a result of witch-hunting by the present government and the sudden 10-fold increment in party registration fees imposed to affront our appearance on the political scene, we recognize that the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket is the only feasible ticket that holds hope for Nigeria’s next generation and the promise of a free and fair electoral platform for the full participation of all Nigerians and the nation’s youth in 2019 and beyond.
In the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket we see an opportunity for Nigeria to recover coveted state assets in the hands of the cabal. We see a chance for Nigerian youth to be gainfully employed. We see the repositioning of Nigeria in the world scene. In this ticket we are convinced that our youth will no longer be employed only as political thugs and terrorists but will reap the value of their humanity and have their numbers applied meaningfully to the growth of Nigeria as equal opportunity share holders.
The Sovereign National Party supports the Buhari/Osinbajo ticket based on the record of performance of these two individuals. We carefully reviewed the record of the General and are decided that the General should return. We trust the capacity of Attorney and Pastor Osinbajo as a capable Vice and next in command to the General in times of his absence or other indisposition. We see in these two candidates immense compassion, intelligence, wisdom and a record of humanistic achievement.
The Sovereign National Party calls on all Nigeria’s youth to lead today by making and defending the right choice for Nigeria; a choice of repair, recovery and progress; a choice to move Nigeria forward, out of the hands of looters of its treasury and dignity; to choose Buhari/Osinbajo. Our wise elder Muhammadu Buhari promises to create the opportunity for today and tomorrow’s youth. Let us not let him down and we are assured he will not let us down.
We urge peaceful conduct during and after the elections. We urge the youth to utilize technology to monitor the electoral process, capturing pictures and video.
We urge all candidates to adhere to the Abuja peace accord and condemn those who have already advocated violence and intimidated Nigerians by sponsoring demonstrations by armed thugs in our major cities.
We urge the Nigerian youth to stand by to work with the Buhari/Osinbajo administration as partners in the New Nigerian Project. We assure Nigeria’s youth that your party, the SNP will always monitor our elected officials and will be the first to condemn politicians when they deviate from their promises.
We thank you for standing by.
