Chief Martin Onovo has said the NCP had begun to strengthen its structures for greater efficiency in the 2019 general elections.

The 2015 Presidential Candidate of the National Conscience Party (NCP)  told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos on Sunday that the aim was to give Nigerians desired leadership.

What we are doing now is going to the grassroots to re-invigorate our structures and also ensure a concrete structure outside the country.

This started in July, 2016 when we had our national convention in Akure.

“We are instigating state congresses to re-energise the party: when we succeed with that, the state leadership will do the same thing at the local government level.

“The local government will do the same thing at the Ward level. This is the time for internal self-auditing and planning.

“This is geared toward re-assessing, re-invigorating our organisation for effectiveness in 2019,’’ he said.

He said that an NCP administration would ensure a secure and economically vibrant country.

On why NCP was unable to secure a seat at state and national levels, Onovo alleged that elections in Nigeria had never been free and fair.

He said that the retired Gen. Muhammadu Buhari administration would do better if it could do away with sycophants.

He said:”You must realise that there are sycophants in politics who are ever ready to interfere.

“You need to bring the right people who share your patriotic passion to work with you.”

Onovo said that corruption was against the development of any society, adding that corrupt persons should be arrested, prosecuted and sentenced, if found guilty.

He urged the Federal Government to fix refineries as a strategy to rebuild the country and reduce corruption.
