A Coalition of Civil Societies and Media Executives for Good Governance in Nigeria has passed a vote of confidence on President Muhammadu Buhari’s led government.
President of the group, Mr Omoba Aigbegbele at a world press briefing in Abuja said President Buhari’s government has made a lot of intellectual sacrifices to keep Nigeria safe, secured and united in spite of the challenges it faces.
Mr Aigbegbele said some of such challenges included; hate speeches and ethnic bias among the populace, to give the government and the country a bad name.
According to him, ‘‘some forces masquerading as foreign NGOs with local collaborators are aiding, abetting and inciting divisiveness against the effort of the government to move the country forward, to satisfy their selfish ambition.”
Working with the government
Mr Aigbegbele therefore called on the International communities, friends of Nigeria, politicians and well-meaning Nigerians to join hands with the government in its endeavors to protect lives and property in Nigeria.
The World press conference was occasioned by the recently issued press statement by coalition of seventy CSOs across Nigeria to pass a vote of no confidence on President Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration.
A Coalition of Civil Societies and Media Executives for Good Governance in Nigeria is an umbrella body of over 350 CSOs, NGOs, human rights activists, Bloggers and media executives who have over the years advocated for transparency, accountability and good governance regime in Nigeria.
The body emphasised that Nigeria is safe for investment as it is a choice destination and investment haven.
