The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has urged the 10th National Assembly to give utmost importance to the principles of national unity, equity, and competency when selecting the next set of principal officers.
The organization has advised that every region, religion, and leadership capacity should be taken into account to avoid any trust issues or crises in Nigeria.
The National co-spokesperson for CUPP, Mark Adebayo, emphasized that the ethnoreligious configurations of Nigeria should not be disregarded when choosing the Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives.
The elected members of the National Assembly must consider national unity, equity, and leadership capacity and not allow pecuniary factors to determine their choices.
CUPP has called on all stakeholders to ensure justice prevails in choosing the next set of National Assembly principal officers, including the Senate President and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. To ignore the crucial factors of ethnoreligious configurations, equity, and leadership capacity would lead to distrust and crises.
CUPP has vowed to closely monitor the selection process and has demanded that the next set of National Assembly leaders possess integrity, competency, undoubted patriotism, and creative leadership credentials.
