Anthony Orukoya – Mafia Manifesto

The man? The little weasel Anthony Orukoya. A highly problematic individual depending on your politics.

THE MAN:

NAME: Anthony Orukoya  LLB, LLM, PHD (Albert Luthuli D’ Great)

PROFESSION: Solicitor and Advocate of the Supreme Court of Nigeria

ACHIEVEMENTS / EXPERIENCE:         

Ø  Notary Public of the supreme court of Nigeria as well as an arbitrator of the United Kingdom.

Ø  Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Administrators Nigeria

Ø  Temple
As a temple head, young as I was then and at that point when FJ need a leadership that will instill discipline that will showcase every Axeman and encourage them to live by example, Luthuli came on board as Head and ensured all Axemen understood how exemplary their lives and conduct should be portrayed before themselves and other non-members;

Ø  Zone/National

As a National OC Legal I have stood up to be counted on a range of issues amongst which includes: setting up a national legal committee; facilitating legal workshops amongst OC legal worldwide; reviewing the constitution by acting as a Chairman and Liaison Officer between all Stakeholders ;

Ø  As National OC legal, I also led the legal team who saw to the release of our law abiding brothers who were unlawfully detained. Under the leadership of the current WWNH, I championed the legal battle against the Nigeria Police and other concerned groups to see that NBM got a high court declaration as a legitimate group with a right to assemble and carry out its activities legally without any harassment or resistance by any law enforcement agent or groups whatsoever.

Ø  These and many more I have done as National OC Legal. I have travelled far and wide across the globe on NBM matters, delivering talks in Zones, Regions and facilitating cooperation in among Zones, with a view of building national consensus for our policy matters;

Ø  The court judgment we recently achieved is a credit to this administration and to a very large e extent it has given us credibility and I share in that glory as the National OC Legal who prepared, filed and pursued the case vigorously in court, with the requisite support of the leadership of this administration.

Ø   MY MISSIONS AND VISION

I shall strive to give credibility to the Movement by doing what we claim we are i.e. fight for the masses globally starting from Nigeria so that people will see us as a human rights group – a voice for the voiceless and an advocate of the oppressed. We must stand on the side of the people and use our numerical strength to peacefully compel the government to be more responsible to the citizenry. – be that through becoming objective election observers, holding governments at local and national levels accountable and commenting on issues of national interest.

RENAISSANCE 2016

My conviction to serve as the National Head of NBM is guided by my personal perception of the Movement and our society at large. A perception developed from the following: personal experiences; feedbacks; yearnings from brothers worldwide; assertion from stakeholders(within & outside the movement) and the society at large. The principles and ideals of our beloved Movement were formed on the premise of Equality and Social Justice. An ideology we will continue to seek and continuously strive to achieve.  Unfortunately, acts of some few disoriented members usually put all glorious members in a state of disdain and our collective image slurred in the process. This is a problem that MUST be addressed as a matter of urgency and priority.

The Movement (NBM) that was founded on social justice, should rise and fight for the poor masses of our great country. We must stand to be counted, we must redeem the Movement and we must rescue our country from the hands of political merchants who are milking our country dry.  We (Neo Black Men) must be seen as a tool for social change cum re-engineering of our ailing country, so that we can take our pride of place in the global community. Together we shall achieve this. I am aware that we all dream of a Movement that will bring succour to the masses and be our collective PRIDE.  Ayes! We must not only dream the dream but act to see the dream come to fruition.

I call on all progressives to join as we act the dream!

Yours in the struggle,
Albert Luthuli D’ Great (Masaka D’ Great).

MY MANIFESTOES:

THE THRUST OF my manifesto is centered on improving and consolidating on our efforts since the creation of our glorious movement most especially the success of the previous administrations and building new frontiers as follows:

Ø  I shall create Financial Independence for the Movement that would lessen financial burden on individual members – this will ensure the Movement’s independence is not taken for granted;

Ø  I shall establish a Business Enterprise for NBM to fund its major activities; the enterprise will have zones as shareholders. It shall be managed by a team of professionals and be independent of the management of the National body, but would be audited regularly by the NATEXCO. Profit would be declared quarterly and shared by the Zones who are shareholders. Zones would use their share of profit to grow their Zones through various programmes that would be proposed and debated by various Zones;

Ø  I intend establishing through collective efforts, Skill Acquisition Centers (SAC) to train and empower our young members and make them more responsible members of society. We shall collaborate with various Agencies of Government on this. This would assist in taking our young members out of streets and reshape their characters for the benefit of the Movement and the Nation;

Ø  I will work towards making NBM become an organization of objective election observers in Nigeria and the rest of Africa;

Ø  My leadership will invest time and resources on building discipline and security of members;

Ø  The National Executive under my leadership shall build unity among members and create a synergy between the old and new generations of members in order to regularly chart a new course for the Movement;

Ø  My leadership will establish National Committees on Sectors basis to tap into various opportunities that will be beneficial to members. Membership will cut across young and old, which shall also include active participation of members in diaspora;

Ø  I shall continually improve on our voting system that will ensure that votes of individual from various zones count during our elections;

I pledge to build on this foundation and to work with all across the movement to take us on to UHURU. If we reach for the stars, we may not get there but we definitely will not come up with a handful .

Felix Kupa – Mafia Manifesto

The former NH’s manifesto prior to been elected. He called for the NBM to “Engage in Worldwide Image Laundering”.

STAND UP FOR ADVANCEMENT

Aye! Axe-men, the days of Suru-egede and dancing Egwu….muo..oo in the dark has passed. Our Movement has come of age and has seen the light of day. I must appreciate and commend Axe-men world all over who has stood firm over the years investing their time and resources towards the growth and advancement of our great Movement. I doff my hat for our heroes past and present, may Korofo continue to bless us all.
The turmoil and sacrifice of our heroes past and present must not be thrown to the wind, we must guard jealously the time and resources we have invested into this movement.
Once again, the time has come for us to elect new crop of leaders to pilot the affairs of our great Movement. We must eschew all sentiments and be very critical in our decision. We must look into the antecedents of every individual from temple days, zonal level and the present. What is their history, can we really trust them?
The movement has suffered a lot of criticism emanating from individual carelessness and negligence, hence this time around we must cross all the t’s and dot all the i’s.
Aye Axe-man, I lord Mokiti Mozuzu, hereby offer myself to you for scrutiny and questioning, as a candidate for the office of the National Head of NBM of Africa, Worldwide.
I am a graduate of Electrical / Electronics Engineering, Masters Degree in Business Management and Ex-Officio, Independent Petroleum Marketers Association of Nigeria, Delta State Chapter. As a magnate in the oil and gas sector, I stand tall to tell you that my business is doing great.
I have served the movement in various capacity ranging from zonal batcher, zonal head, and NCOE member. Over the years I have worked with different leaders of our great movement and it has being a success story.
My decision to serve as the National Head of our great movement was borne out of my desire to take our movement to greater height and also put a stop to some of the problems that threatens the existence of our movement both at home and in the Diasporas.
Some of my priorities will be as listed below;
1. Formatting and Resetting of Our Internal System – There must be a change of attitude, life style and social behaviour of some of our members. The careless attitude of some our members in the past has led to serious security harassment.
2. Ensure Security of Axe-men Worldwide – The Movement cannot keep up with the incessant arrest and harassment of our members both at home and the in the Diasporas. For this reason I and my team will ensure the last court judge executed to the letter. Also, we will make all law enforcement agents understand that NBM of Africa does not condole or support any act of criminality and for this reason all Axe-men world all over must learn to separate the Movement from any form of illegal business.
3. Engage in Worldwide Image Laundering and Rebranding of Our Movement – The name of this Movement has been tainted by a lot of  no do well rival groups and disgruntled elements through blasphemous reports in both the electronic media and newspapers reports.
I and my team will ensure that the world get a better understanding of NBM of Africa as a Pan-Africanist organisation and nothing else. We will engage in programmes and conventions were representatives from government agencies, media houses, civil right societies,  emissaries from foreign embassies (America, Europe and Asia) in Nigeria will be invited to come and learn the truth about the African story.
4. Give Every Axe-man Value for His Time and Resources – The confidence of those that has devoted their time and resources to the growth of this Movement must be restored. Our projects, activities and programmes will be design to reflect the true aspiration and desires of every devoted Axe-man.
5. Transparency at All Levels – Doubts has been one of the greatest enemy of our Movement. A bulk of our members silently lives in doubt, not understanding the true state of affairs in the Movement. This doubt has kept some of our active members inactive. I and my team will make it a point of duty to keep every Axe-man abreast of all NBM dealings and transactions.
6. Uphold the Aims and Objectives of Our Existence – Though, the path to Uhuru might be thorny, Uhuru must remain our destination. NBM of Africa must at all time stand against all vices of Child Slavery, Modern Slavery and all forms of Mental and Emotional Slavery against the black race.
7. Live in an Environment of Tranquility – NBM of Africa must live to impact on our immediate host communities as a peace loving organisation, thereby reposing the confidence of the citizenries on who we are and on our activities.
8. Empowerment of Members – As an entrepreneur, I understand the powers of the capitalist and the terms of capitalism. Therefore my team will set up schemes that will set all members on solid financial base through establishment Cooperative Society in all zones worldwide. These Cooperative Societies will be saddled with the responsibility of funding and giving professional advice for Small Scale Business owned by Axe-men globally.
Aye! Axe-men, I am not going to bore you with so many talks, because I personally believe in talking less and doing much. Therefore, I want you to see me through my works and just too many talks.
I implore Axe-men world all over to join hands with me and my team and lets move NBM of Africa to the next level.
Stand for Lord Mokiti Mozozu as NBM of Africa next National Head.
Yes, We Can!!!
Thanks for being there for me.

Yours in Service,
Lord Mokiti Mozozu,

Head of the NL Zone grassing up the Austria Head.

Aye my National Head,

Aye my National Chair,

  This is to draw your attention to the shortcomings in the forthcoming initiation in Austria. Some of the ITJs lined up for initiation did not meet up with the minimum eduacational requirements of OND. If the constitution allows us to only inititiate graduates and matriculated students as Ayes I strongly believe that no zone has the right to breach this pre-requisite.

  Attempts to draw the attention of the Austria ZH to this is being turned into a personal issue. The Region agreed that since regional blending will be diffiucult in the region for security reasons, any zone that is intending to blend is obliged to buying the tickets for all the Heads in the region to ensure that the initiates are properly screened.

 Among some of the factors that the region also considered before any initiation ceremony is the legal status of the ITJs and nothing was received to this effect.

 If you will recall, the last application for initiation that was made on behalf of Spanish Zone was granted but the initiation did not take place because of the transparency in the screening processes.

 I am therefore asking that you do everything wethin you power to ensure that this inititiation meets the standard requirement for initition into the Neo Black Movement of Africa and provided by our constitution.

 May your metals ever remain sharp.

Black Boogie Final Update

On one hand NBM members do not have enough money to feel able to give much more than a few pennies to charity.

Very understandable when we appreciate the NBM as a charity is simply a smokescreen façade.

Unable to put their hand in the pocket and give one dollar when it could save the life of another member.

SOME QUESTIONS THAT AGITATES THE MIND REGARDING THE MOVEMENT

·        Why is indiscipline rampant in the Movement?

·        Why are we not moving to national limelight?

·        Why are we not playing more positive role in our society?

·        Why are we not pursuing a clear-cut national objective?

·        Why don’t we know all our members?

·        Why are some members not identifying?

·        Why are we not harnessing our potentials?

·        Why are we being used and dumped by the Political class?

WHAT I WANT TO DO:

I promise to give the Movement a honest and purposeful leadership that will make it the envy of all. In pursuit of this I will strengthen the existing structures in the Movement and work with the NCOE to create a system that will forever throw up our best materials for our leadership position. To achieve this:

Ø we shall further aggregate ideas to come up with an Amended Constitution that will fill lapses that we have observed in the operation of this exiting constitution;

Ø We shall in addition to this create a Financial Regulations for the Movement that will guide our financial operations.

Ø We shall embark on population census of our members with a view of creating a data base that other successive administration will grow on it;

Ø We shall create a machine readable computerize Identity Card that will be carried by authentic and loyal members;

Moreso, the following groups will be created to pursue some specific objectives:

Ø We shall establish NBM Business Group- This Group will constantly identify business opportunities and modalities for financing for NBM Members and serve as an advisory body for young NBM entrepreneurs;

Ø We shall establish NBM Information and Propaganda Group – This Group shall educate the up coming members and public on the activities of the Movement and shall project our organization in good light, they will grant interviews and make newspaper publications;

Ø We shall establish a Group that will pursue the idea of Reparation – This Group shall work assiduously with other existing international organization that is pursuing the idea of reparation for African countries that suffers from the effect of slave trade and slavery, this will include contemporary issues on brain drain;

Ø We shall establish NBM Political Contact Group – This Group shall  negotiate with Political Parties and groups that requires our support with a view of deriving maximum benefit for the Movement;

Ø We shall establish Youth Building and Empowerment Group – This group will work on the youths with a view of ensuring that they have vocational training, the aim is to reduce the incidence of unemployment in the society;

Ø We shall establish NBM Professional Contact Group- This will comprise of various professionals within the Movement that will work with the professionals in the larger society, so that members can derive maximum benefits from their membership of various professional bodies and also work with other professionals that are pursuing humanitarian work;

Ø We shall establish NBM Pan Africanism and Ideological Group- Please note that the oldest civilization known in the Americas was the Olmec, and it was of Black Africoid origin and flourished over a 5000 years period.   This civilization existed in the Americas before the arrival of the red Indians, this Group will identify most of these historical facts that abound and propagate them for the purpose of education and to ensure we instill pride in black race; and

Ø NBM Human Right Group- This Group will ensure that will take up cases of basic abuse of human rights and bring them to public fore, as well as working with other human rights groups in the larger society.

What we have done for ourselves alone dies with us.

What we have done for others and the world remains and

is immortal. I WILL FOREVER PROMOTE SELFLESS SERVICE FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE MOVEMENT.

Appears to have died about 5 weeks ago.

With Sadness in our hearts but total submission to the will of God, we announce the death of a great leader, father and friend, Deacon Kunle Akerele (Baba K), which unfortunate event took place on 17th May 2021. He died in his sleep.He was the pioneer President of NBM Abuja Chapter and a former National Treasurer of NBM. Until his death, he was a Director in NAPTIN (National Power Training Institute) under the Federal Ministry of Power.This is a huge blow to the movement as Mr Kunle has impacted quality leadership on countless members. The movement is once again plunged into mourning at this time. We pray the Almighty grant his wonderful soul eternal rest.

Abdulkareem Ikharo – Mafia Manifesto

I like these… Can get a good view of the person’s perspective of the organisation and it’s problems.

In Abdulkareem’s case he’s worried about: image, image, image.

“Addressing our present problem of identity… regarding our Image and identity of being a Secret Cult”

“Improvement on publicity both in the print and electronic media for image laundering and showcasing the activities of the Movement to the larger society”

Isn’t that what NBM147Watch is for old boy?

Aye Axemen !

The problems of the Movement can only be solved by a Head that has the understanding of the problems, passionate about the Movement, must have the time, the energy, the experience; self discipline, must be honest, current with NBM activities and above all the fear of God at heart. The individual must be ready to stay clear of politics or political party activities which today are the biggest distractions that have stalled the initially well outlined mission of the present regime.

a) I have remained actively and consistently involved in NBM activities for the past twenty years, at the Temple, Zonal and National executive bodies of the Movement.

b) The nature of my job makes it very possible and convenient for me to address and tackle the daunting task ahead since I can respond immediately to emergency situations when such occasion arises.

c) My already established cordial relationship with virtually all our  Zones and members of the NCOE is of essence.

d)My over 5 years as an axe man in the North and another 15 in the South couple with my multi lingual advantage ( Yoruba, Hausa , Edo  and a decent ibo languages) will be useful to me .

e) My records as a former Temple COE Chairman, Temple Head, Zonal Butcher, Zonal Head, National Butcher and the present National Chief Priest are there for all to see.

f) If NBM is a social cultural Organization, my experience as a Curator with the National Commissions for the Museums and Monuments shall be of advantage in an effort to actualize this pivot aim.

ACTION PLANS

1) Sensitization and holistic execution of our failed recertification exercise and a proactive review of blending into the Movement.

2) Addressing our present problem of identity with special attention to some our abandoned cases in various courts regarding our Image and identity of being a Secret Cult.

3) Hire the services of experienced Constitutional lawyer to draft a proper and befitting constitution that will no longer suffer the present unnecessary and unfortunate manipulations, changes and reviews we have experienced in the past years.

4) Reduction in the present annual and Convention dues being paid by the Zones with a view to reactivate our dying zones and putting an end to the over dependence of the National body on Zones for funds.

5) Setting up a database for plans that include empowerment of members, census, information dissemination etc.

6) A proactive approach to bridge the present gab between Temples and Zones and encouraging scholarship schemes for Ayes like the ongoing Lord W.E. Du Bois Scholarship Scheme.

7) Addressing the present indiscipline, lost of values and ideals of the Movement and unbridled lack of respect for Constituted authorities in the Movement

8) Networking and Connectivity with other NGOs, socio cultural organizations and governmental bodies like the South African Govt.

9) Improvement on publicity both in the print and electronic media for image laundering and showcasing the activities of the Movement to the larger society.

10) Work very hard to commence the actualization of putting up a befitting National Secretariat.

11) Setting up of workable Committees especially on Political Matters, Disciplinary measures, Finance, Welfare, Publicity and Legal Matters that will advice and assist the National Executive in these various areas.

12) We shall sustain and even improve on the major projects of this present regime like the Uhuru Foundation and Cooperative Societies in all the Zones given the immense growth it will bring to the Movement.

I seek your support and mandate not particularly to lead you my brothers and soldiers in the struggle, but to serve you the way services are truly rendered.

May Korofo, the ever merciful continue to have mercy on us.

Von Edomi – Mafia Manifesto

Von Edomi (Lord Quadaffi)’s manifesto for his attempt to become National Head some years ago.

Von Edomi is not only a former London Zone Head… and not only the first London Zone Head… He holds the remarkable and very dubious accolade of been the first ever Zonal Head in the history of the NBM outside of Nigeria.

Agenda4change – Putting the NEO back in NBM

26 years ago I embarked on a journey that has to date fashioned me to be who I am, what I believe in and for people who know me, what I have become and how I live my life.


Today and the next three months will determine and show not just what NBM has done for me, how it has shaped my thinking. But what I can and will do for my beautiful yellow, black and white.


Libya’s Quadaffi captured the essence of his revolution in the Green Book, Chairman Mao in the Red Book and as I stand for the exhalted position of National Head, this is my manifesto as I seek your support.


We know the problems our great Movement has been beset with not least over the last 10 years or more. We can all identify the barriers and reasons why we have not been able to overcome bad leadership, greed, lack of a commitment and dedication to the course, lack of transparency and financial probity to name a few.


I stand for the position of NH with an agenda to bring about change and a desperate urge and ability to put the NEW back in the Neo Black Movement of Africa worldwide. My cardinal policies and my plans for the movement can be summarised as such:


P – Programmes which will portray the Movement in positive light and raise its profile not just in Nigeria, but across the world. Events on the NBM calendar, seminars, workshops and charitable initiatives will not only happen, measurable objectives will be set at the start and results evaluated and reported.

Notable in achieving credible programmes, I intend to concentrate on the following:

Charity – A charity will be identified for national efforts as the NH’s nominated partner and all efforts will be concentrated on support for it. This will be replicated across zones who can pick local charities for the year or support that of the NH. The intention is to position NBM as a ‘giving organisation’.

Education – charity begins at home and I want education to be our watchword and the food for our brains. From regular indoctrination of members temple to zone; to offering scholarships to members who excel in their studies to encouraging members wherever they are to volunteer their time to run lessons in their communities.


NBM calendar of activities will be enshrined in the psyche of our communities with the ambition of making dates such as the Sharpville massacre national events – raising our profile and bringing us closer to the communities we live and work.

All the above initiatives will be measured by perceived shift in public perception of NBM and will serve to show the world that we practice what we preach as well as generate much needed positive media coverage and help launder our image.


P – Politics and the affairs of the Movement have become a bane on our togetherness and brotherhood. I will work closely with major stakeholders to deliver a position statement on the dos and don’t’s of temples, zones and membership involvement in politics. This will include:

Develop as a matter of urgency, protocols and guidance on political involvement and NBM.


Work with the body and NCOE agree to eschew patronage of oppressive regimes/administrat ions as we cannot be seen to eat from the same table as those we exist to criticise and condemn. We must be seen to ‘walk the talk!!!!’


Put in place strong, effective and enforceable measures to sanction members where there is evidence they have been involved in political violence, as such bringing the name of the Movement into disrepute – the message will be clear: WE ARE NOT THUGS FOR HIRE!!!!!

F – Financial probity and build up is a starting block. It is disgraceful to say the least that despite claims we are registered with the CAC, over the last 11 years at least there has never been a full statement of accounts or an Annual Report published for members and zones alike to see. As National Head, I will:

Ensure the Ihaza submits monthly statements to include dues collected, zones owing, incomings and outgoings to all zones.

Set a yearly budget at the beginning of our financial year (to be pegged at 1 April) immediately after convention ratified by the said convention.

Establish agreed sanction for zones not meeting financial obligations.

Establish, agree and enforce other income streams including merchandising.

Publication of annual reports – which are transparent and submitted to CAC.

Appoint external auditors.

I undertake to ensure that at the end of the first year of the administration, the Movement’s account will be in credit to the tune of N5m minimum.


O – Ownership is important as NBM is a Movement based on the enviable principles of equality and social justice. Suffice to say that for sometime now the practice has been one of hidden agendas, ‘men in grey suits’ and a dictatorship where stakeholders are eating off the crumbs of the master’s table.


I will ensure that the concept of ownership traverses all strata of the Movement by:

Setting up a consultation mechanism including built in feedback from temples to zones and the NCOE – that we listen and act.

Develop a forward planning system for NEXCO/NCOE agenda and meetings so people are aware when discussions will happen and issues are being consulted upon.

Proactive response system to agitations and issues raised and build upon existing appeal systems to make it credible.

T – Transparency is the bread and butter of our Movement. We are the voice of the voiceless, the protector of the oppressed and the new black man who should not be party to all the negative isms of tribalism, nepotism etc. If our innermost workings are shrouded in secrecy how then can we challenge oppressors in the wider society?

I will ensure we ‘unravel’ the myth surrounding what we are and what we are not including developing an FAQ fact sheet for all and sundry to debunk falsehood about NBM.


Ensure all our activities and decisions are open to scrutiny for all members.


Agree corporate lines and messages for national and zonal officers to use in the media etc.

O – One family; we are our brother’s keepers and share the same womb whether we like it or not. We have to live as one family and share the same values and direction, agree to disagree without plotting evil for our sworn brother – therein lies our redemption.

 
We have the resources, the brains and the number in the Movement and like any organisation be it a political party there are divergent views; left, right, centre, left of centre

As NH I will encourage the benefits of these divergent views, disagreeing to agree as long as mutual respect is supreme.

T – Truth and reconciliation will allow wrongs to be righted, the slighted to forgive and those who may have been disillusioned or frustrated to move away, I will beg us all to build for a greater tomorrow.


We are all aware of the fact that truth and honesty in NBM have been sacrificed on the alter of personal gain, which has led to men of valour and a great many members being left with no choice but to remove themselves voluntarily or otherwise from Movement activities while others have chosen to only hear the echo in public ‘spectaculars’ like weddings or street forums.


As National Head, I will institute what in all terms and purposes a sort of truth and reconciliation which will among other things:

carry out a proper reconciliation exercise including the allocation of registration numbers for axemen in zones and then to temples at a later date

the truth and reconciliation process will include the opportunity for people with excuses and grievances to make a representation to have their grievances aired, issues resolved in order to wipe the slate clean.

E – Education is the foundation stone of any successful society – NBM was gounded in a citadel of learning and there we must go back to in our minds and our writings to rediscover our purpose.

If appointed to the position of NH, I will:

Start a process of re-educating members about the aims and objectives of NBM and the expectations of axemen including temples.

Encourage the award of scholarships to deserving axemen as well as others within our local communities.

Use educational initiatives to spread the NBM gospel.

C – Constitutional reform or reforms have been the norm for the past 10 years at the least but not all of those amendments have been done with proper consultation and involvement and this seems to have been done to suits the purposes of a few – a situation which continues today and has seen values eroded and a multiplicity of inconsistencies between the law and illegality.


My legacy as NH would be to institute a comprehensive and all inclusive constitutional conference, the conclusions and recommendations which will be presented to the convention as an all inclusive way forward for the Movement.


C – Corporate entity and certification needs clarity and the normal process that other companies go through. We need to operate not like we currently do but use the skills and resources we have to aspire to excellence. It is my intention to:

Revisit and examine the current certificate of incorporation with the CAC and see if it is fit for purpose.

Clarify the requirements for registration from the CAC and establish if we regularly meet them.

C – Committee approach to involving, including, consulting and engaging all levels of the Movement to deliver not only on our aims and objectives, but yearly programmes and activities as well.

 
A vote for Quadaffi is an agenda4change – a guarantee that there will be no more sponging off the Movement, no more kitchen cabinet decisions and no more government for the people by a select few.


This agenda4change will lead us to UHURU, without which we cannot stand toe to toe with the oppressors of millions of our fellow Nigerians, Africans and brothers in the diaspora on the streets; we cannot face them in the law courts, the media and in the comfort of their own homes, secure in the justification that ours is a moral crusade and we shall triumph!!!!! !!!!!
