Nigeria has ‘mere’ platforms, not political parties, says Fayemi

GOVERNOR Kayode Fayemi has said what passes for political parties in Nigeria are mere plaforms and not proper political parties.

The governor said proper political parties are organic structures driven by particular ideas and ideals which make them unique and distinguishable from others.

He added that the ideals and ideas of a proper political party must speak to the yearnings of the people.

Fayemi, who doubles as Chairman of Nigeria Governors Forum, spoke at a get-together organised by the members of the National Assembly to mark his birthday in Abuja.

He urged Nigerians to continue to strengthen the ties that bind the country to ensure a better future for the country.

The NGF chairman said such ties predated colonialism, stressing that the country can only triumph when everyone puts their hands together and ensure they do whatever they can in their various spheres to strengthen the bridge of togetherness.

He said, “It is about what would make a difference to our people. And none of our two parties (veiled reference to the ruling All Progressives Congress and the opposition People’s Democratic Party), or any of the parties that we have; none of us is there yet. We are still platforms.

“What we need is an organic party structure that really speaks to the yearnings of our people, a lot more strongly than we do at the moment.”

Fayemi, while expressing gratitude to the National Assembly members for honouring him, said they had contributed immensely to the successes recorded in Ekiti.
