NIGERIA NEWS gathered that the group made this known on Wednesday in Lagos through a statement relayed by its national coordinator, Dr. Ikem Ume-Ezeoke.
According to the coordinator, the group major concern is a peaceful coexistence of citizens and residents of Nigeria.
Speaking further he posited that such can only be achieved through leadership accountability both in government and in the private sector.
He also relayed that the campaign is also geared towards reorientating Nigerians on their role in ensuring the development and growth of the country.
Part of the statement read: “CPRHD is committed to the course of peace in a way that all ethnic nationalities and groups within Nigeria can see the benefits in harmoniously living together and willing to contribute to national development. We desire a rancour-free Nigeria, a Nigeria without ethnic, religious and political divides, a Nigeria in which citizens are proud and aware of their civic duties and can hold leadership accountable.”
Dr Ume-Ezeoke further said: “we can no longer continue to complain; everybody seems to know the problems but few people are coming forward with solutions. We need solutions now, not a constant reminder of our problems; we already know enough of our problems.”
“So, the CPRHD will be focusing on solutions while consulting with key stakeholders in the Nigerian project, especially the masses who are instrumental to electing leaders, toward finding lasting solutions. This platform is to educate and enlighten citizens toward recruiting the right leaders.”
“The country has suffered so much because of leaders who are not compassionate or empathic enough towards the people.”
Another member of the group also contributed to the issue. In the opinion of Osadolor Solomon Isioma, the legal adviser to the group “CPRHD is a vehicle for actualizing national and human development.”
Given the agenda we have set for ourselves, we are determined to bring back peace and harmony to this country through dialogue, working in partnership with other groups” he added.
He noted the importance of the campaign as he disclosed that the group is ready to embark on it without paying attention to any hindrance that may come their way. In his words “We believe that the right national orientation is important so we will pursue this aggressively”.
