The issue of contesting elections only to have a bite of the national cake should no longer be our motivation for seeking political office.

This assertion was made by the Director General, DG of The New Agenda Group, Major General Moses Bisong Obi in a press briefing in Calabar yesterday.

The retired general maintained that the philosophy behind the establishment of the group is the high demand for good governance as well as consolidation and sustenance of our democratic principles.

Major General Obi described the press as a major factor for democratic growth whose role is critical, beckoning on journalists to join hands with them in ensuring that the gospel of good governance will be preached to all and sundry. Maintaining that with all hands on deck the dream of good governance will be achieved.

He affirmed that “It is far easier to evaluate our representatives and also report result through social media platforms and other similar innovations”.

The DG who maintained that he is in no way contesting for any elective position nor have intention to use the group as a political tool said he wants to bring his wealth of experience in the Nigeria military into play in strengthening democracy. He added that the group is and will always remain a non partisan one.

He ended with a quote from the late Nelson Mandela of South Africa, “We must use this time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right”.
