The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has pledged to support the President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, in his mission to give the country an effective leadership and good governance.

National Chairman of the party, Mr Boniface Aniebonam, made the pledge while addressing newsmen on the just concluded general elections at Umuawulu.

Aniebonam stressed the need for the opposition parties and stakeholders in the country to enter into responsible partnership with the President-elect.

“The best thing all Nigerians should do now is to embrace the rule of law and support the President-elect to move the country forward.

“It is high time Nigerians from different political backgrounds rally round the President-elect and join hands with him to transform Nigeria in taking the country to the next level,” he said.

The NNPP chairman urged Buhari to offer olive branch to his opponents and see his victory within the context of ‘No Victor, No Vanquished’.

He noted that the 2015 general elections conducted by the Prof. Attahiru Jega-led Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) encouraged the strengthening of winning parties and killing the weaker parties and creating in the process the prospect of a one-party state.

He expressed concern over the poor performances of smaller parties in the elections and advocated more funding for political parties in the country.
