The Nigerian Council of Registered Insurance Brokers (NCRIB), has strongly advised its members to be active in the political process that will elect leaders for another four years in 2023 general election.
The NCRIB President Mr. Rotimi Edu, let brokers understand the need to be involved in the political process and painstakingly explain that to elect leaders who would determine the common destiny of the nation for another four years require active participation in the political process leading to the election. He said there are consequences for being inactive, noting “that when we stay aloof, we leave our common destiny to be decided by others.”
Urging members not to be bystanders but be involved and vote, he extends his plea, “It is on this note I like to enjoin my colleagues and every other guests here to participate in the electoral process that determines those who will govern us in the coming dispensation.”
Edu also enjoined the media to go beyond surface reporting and highlight basic qualities and otherwise of all the candidates without prejudice. He offers his reason, “In doing so, you would be aiding the process of electing the right person for the right position, and subsequently, entrenching the process of good governance in Nigeria.”
He speaks more, “Let us all shun the politics of bitterness and embrace peace for the development of our nation. I am convinced that most nations of the world are not as blessed as Nigeria. We only got it wrong in our selection of leaders.”
On ASUU strike, he said the posture of Federal government ignores the consequences of keeping students out of school at a time of high moral decadence and quick money; he therefore, urged the “federal government to pay closer attention to the issue of our nation’s education system.”
Without mincing words Edu said, “For the sake of the future, federal government should dialogue with ASUU and meet their demands.”
