Chairman of the Action Alliance (AA), Chief Kenneth Udeze has expressed his intention to contest for a second term in office at the party’s national convention to be held on March 14, 2021.
Conveying his intention via an email sent to TheFact Nigeria, Chief Udeze said that under his watch and in his first tenure, the Party has done very well, winning lots of seats in the states and National Assembly.
TheFact Nigeria reports that the Action Alliance Chairman intends to set a campaign template upon which the party can look on, towards taking over the government at the center by collective collaboration and efforts of serious-minded Political allies
Chief Udeze who said he is expecting victory at the convention because of his ability to stabilize the Action Alliance said that if not re-elected, he will be willing to congratulate the winner and concede defeat in the interest of the party.
Chief Udeze said: “With special reference to the question in the mind of so many people, who had followed the activities of our Party since its registration as a full-fledged Political Party and a veritable platform for political office seekers, and indeed, those who are supporting because of the ideals and values we showcase, one thing that will come so easily to their mind, is that under my watch and in my first tenure, our Party has done very well.
“Our Party met the mark set by INEC, that was the reason why everyone is here today, and not in the Law Court contesting our deregistration. So, a glowing testimony to my stewardship, is that we are still one of the fully accredited Political Parties in Nigeria, with massive prospects.
“In the last general election, through my political savviness, we were able to win a lot of seats in the States and National Assembly.
“The peace that the Party has enjoyed so far, is because am a team player, and I run a rancor free administration, where everyone’s opinion count. It may surprise you to note that most of the challenges we have ever had, were from the outside, those whose intent and purpose is to distract us, but I thank God for faithful Party members, who had always stood by me. So, the most crucial and important reason for the call to serve the second time, is to save the soul of the Party from political terrorist and hijackers.
“Continuity in politics, is a very important political component. I know where we are coming from, I know where we are at the moment, and I know where we are going to. With all intent and purpose, it is the most ideal thing to do, as we are in a better place now, that we were in the past, to make a thick note.
“The Party must be restored back to the intent of our founding fathers in the philosophy of “No turning back and no going back”.
“In my second term, I want to make sure that we immortalize the names of those who paid the supreme price in the cause of their membership and contributions with regards to projecting the party with their strength, without monetary inducements, but with total commitment to the ideals they believe in, which has the tendencies of protecting and advancing lives, liberty and democracy.
“I want to single out Compatriots like the first National Chairman of AA, Late Senator Suleiman Salawu (a Second Republic Senator) from Kwara State and also, Alh. Abdullahi Dogolinkita, from Kebbi state. There will be in place an annual leadership lecture in honour of these great men in the near future.
“Above all I want to make sure that the Masses that owns the Party known as Action Alliance takes over the process of abiding strictly to the letters of the constitution because by so doing sanity and respect will be restored back to the corporate Political existence of the Party.”
