A non-governmental organisation, Conference of Nigerians in the Defence of Democracy (CNDD), has urged all Nigerians to support the incoming administration at the federal level to actualise its mission of moving the nation forward.

National Chairman of CNDD, Malam Mohammed Abubakar, made the appeal in Kano at the opening of a two-day retreat organised for its members.

Abubakar, who pledged the NGO’s support for the incoming administration of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, said this would enable him to lift the country to greater heights and meet the expectations of Nigerians.

“Nigeria’s status as a promising political edifice must be sustained and fully consolidated for the sake of confronting the challenges ahead.

“The task ahead is a herculean one given the myriad of challenges facing the country,’’ he said.

Abubakar said the CNDD believes that there were better ways in which things could be done in the country.

According to him, there is a need for attitudinal change in the country and every Nigerian has an abiding obligation to chart a positive course for himself.

“This is the way to complement the effort of the new administration, aimed at positioning the country on the right track,’’ he said.

He appealed to the President-elect to remain as he is “in his stand for branding leadership by example”.
