The attention of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has been drawn to the weird drama of a six – man egoistic comedians who double as swindlers. We realized that greed and self-aggrandizement are a dangerous fire which have no respect for either intellect or knowledge. Though very contagious like Coronavirus, greed is an incurable disease which is worse than Coronavirus; Coronavirus attacks the body but greed attacks the soul. Lau Tzu said, “there is no calamity greater than lavish desires. There is no greater guilt than discontent. And there is no greater disaster than greed.” As further explained by Lynette Hill in Halfnote’s Song, “too much ambition can be the death of a man. … Or of many, if he can persuade them to follow”.
On Saturday, 26th of September, 2020, a micro group of illegitimate actors led by one Sule Bello who claims membership of the Peoples Redemption Party enacted a comic drama which was indeed laughable claiming that a vote of no confidence was passed on the Indefatigable National Chairman of the PRP and his NEC members as an envious reaction to general acceptability, mass support and unequal love shown to them by members of the PRP across the nation. On Saturday, 26th of September, 2020, at Hotel Seventeen, Kaduna, people from different walks of life including prominent media houses witnessed the solidarity expressed by thirty three out of thirty-six state chairmen who passed a vote of confidence on the Falalu Bello – led National Executive Committee recognizing their selfless service in conformity with our party vision to liberate Nigerians from whims and caprices of corruption and oppression. Men and women of honour and integrity undeniably appreciated the lengths and breadths of our NEC activities since the time it was given mandate to steer the affairs of our great party. As we always say, no achievement can be achieved without respect for public opinions, due consultation of selfless members of the PRP, zero tolerance for corrupt practices and polarization of party for self interest and mercantilistic ambition.
It is indisputable that lack of party ideologies, ego, indiscipline and partiality has made many parties repeat political flaws of their predecessors. We do not know where the Creator is taking our party to but this we know, the name of our party can never be allowed to be used by any impostor or swindler to defraud the public. PRP vision is bigger than any individual interest and self ambition of any person. The poison that has destroyed so many parties in the political history of Nigeria will never be permitted or entertained in our party. On this note, the National Executive Committee (NEC), National Working Committee (NWC) and Board of Trustees (BOT) of our great party will give no chance for barbarity, pernicious egocentrism and morbid display of megalomania. Our ideology has been refined in the furnace of discipline. Thus, it is a taboo to our political stance to permit any act that violates principles of equity, equality and humanity. The PRP belongs to decent and patriotic Nigerians, not a six man group of saboteurs and fraudsters. Our belief and practice shall be WHAT IS SAUCE FOR GOOSE IS SAUCE FOR GANDER. This with strong party discipline and vision shall take us to lofty heights sooner than later.
The six man conspirators had baselessly accused our national leadership for lack of good faith for the party. Well, pessimists will always see from dark perspectives even when the sky is bright. We will like the accusers to know that people of great integrity, sight and insight across the nooks and crannies of the nation know and acknowledge the efforts and activities of our national leaders. Their pointless display of manifestation of humbug and folly can never discourage our national leaders. We will rather think of and work on how to, with other patriots, accomplish the PRP’s goals and keep the hope of the multitude alive. Their drama really entertained us and we believe it truly amused millions of Nigerians who read their dramatic scripts.
We enthusiastically advise the power-seeking fraudsters to earnestly redirect their energy to something meaningful. Though they really displayed political folly, it is never too late to adjust. Though they keep on wearing a mask of deceit and mischief, it is never too late to think right. Though they seek leadership of the PRP by all means for their personal interest, it is never too late to understand the importance of patriotism, integrity, love and service to humanity.
While security agents are pursuing these lawless riff-raffs, we will also like to tell all Nigerians, especially, the bonafide members of the PRP to desist from listening to these wind chasers. Their ambition is control; the goal is self aggrandizement. We can proudly say that all executive members of the PRP have their jobs. Kindly abstain from interacting with this rabble of idlers; their disease is contagiously incurable. Once you are infected, you start thinking in their evil ways. They are empty souls; they are weird apostles of division, doom and destruction. They are merchants of dupery and fakery sponsored by the movers and shakers of bad governance in order to cause instability in the PRP. Their mission is woefully dead on arrival!
Last but not least, we will like all Nigerians and the PRP comrades to know that our activities and agenda remain valid. Their fraudulent posture should be seen as nothing but as display of desperation on their part and a sign of our collective victory. Be rest assured that our victory is sure.
Thank you all PRP members!
Thank you all Nigerians!
Comrade Muhammed Ishaq,
Patriotic PRP member,

Eid-ul-Kabir: PRP urges Nigerians to be brothers’ keepers
The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has felicitated with all Nigerian Muslims on the occasion of Eid-ul-Kabir 2021 celebration.
This was contained in a press statement signed by the party’s National Chairman, Alhaji Falalu Bello and made available to newsmen on Sunday.
Part of the statement reads: “the Eid-ul-Kabir festival symbolizes and promotes the spirit of self sacrifice. Therefore, the PRP uses this significant occasion to exhort Nigerians to continue to show love and mercy to one another.
“With the security situation in the country that is worsening by the day coupled with the gnawing poverty in the land, it is obvious that millions of Nigerians will not have the luxury of revelling in the season. Hence, the PRP considers it pertinent to call on the Muslims nationwide to fervently pray for the nation as they celebrate Eid-ul-Kabir for God’s urgent intervention.
“In addition, we call on the governments at all levels to come up with urgent and proactive strategies that would put an end to the myriad problems of general insecurity, banditry, unemployment, hunger, bad economy, among others.
“Finally, the PRP rejoices with Muslims nationwide at this festive time and wishes them a happy celebration. And as we celebrate, let us all recommit ourselves, individually and collectively, to make Nigeria a safer, equitable, progressive and more egalitarian fatherland for all irrespective of our ethnic, religious and/or cultural plurality,” the statement revealed.
2021: PRP vows to win Anambra guber election
The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has expressed its readiness and determination to defeat other political parties in the Anambra State Governorship election slated for November 6, 2021.
The Anambra State Chairman of the party, Hon. Mathias N. Aninwachukwu, in a press statement made available on Sunday, disclosed that the prospect of the party was high and bright considering the fact that their candidate, Dr. Nnamdi Nwawuo had been duly screened and given a clean bill of health by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) last Friday.
Part of the statement reads; “in spite of the fact that this is the first time PRP is contesting gubernatorial election in Anambra State, the clean bill of health received by our candidate from INEC had indisputably shown that our candidate will participate in the November governorship poll and it is an indication that our party has the strength to win the election overwhelmingly.
“The above development has also exposed and terminated the activities of some imposters who are desperate to embarrass and tarnish the reputable name of our great party, the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).
“As the oldest surviving political party in Nigeria, PRP has good policies and programs for the Ndi Anambra with job creation, agriculture, industrialization, transformation of health sector, provision of basic and functional education as primary priorities.
“Finally, we use this medium to encourage our party members and supporters across Anambra State to continue working diligently, harmoniously and peacefully so as to ensure the party reach its deserved destination which is victory,” the statement revealed.
