LAGOS NCP WITHDRAWS ELECTION CANDIDATES
Lagos State NCP
Statement delivered by Segun Sango, the Lagos State Chairman of the National Conscience Party at a press conference held on Tuesday, March 20, 2007 at Gani Fawehinmi Chambers, 35, Adeniran Ajao Estate, Anthony Village, Lagos.
The National Conscience Party (NCP) was formed in defiance of the military martial laws of the murderous late General Sanni Abacha. For its acts of conviction and courage in this respect several of its leaders at national and chapter levels were, as a result, arrested and put in indefinite detention without trial on several occasions. Right from its turbulent beginning, the party took decidedly pro-masses' stands and as such, chose "abolition of poverty", a major affliction of the masses, as its central motto. Severally and collectively, the NCP members under the leadership of its founding chairman, Chief Gani Fawehinmi, played a lot of crucial roles in the masses struggle against military dictatorship, which eventually brought about the current so-called democratic dispensation.

SPECIAL MESSAGE TO 2006 NATIONAL CONVENTION OF THE NCP:
Firstly, we congratulate the party national leaders for holding this congress at this especially troubled time of Nigeria's history. The more money the country makes, the more miserable the vast majority of the masses become. Almost eight years after the exit of the military, the powers that be run polity in a mostly undemocratic manner, which even sometimes makes people to wander what is the difference between the two. The so-called civil rule has been dominated by series of acts of unconstitutionality and routine disobedience of unfavourable court orders by the powers that be. If there was any doubt about the undemocratic credentials of the ruling parties across the country, either in the PDP or the opposition parties like the ANPP and AD/AC, the recently concluded primaries of these parties have totally exploded such myths. In all these parties, basic democratic rules were brusquely trampled upon with only those favoured by the powers that be at the central and state levels emerging winners of a pre-determined contest. All of these factors will doubtlessly worsen the economic and political plight of the masses in the period before and after the 2007 general elections.
18 December 2006
