The Hierarchy and members of the National Commercial Tricycle and Motorcycle Riders Association (NACTMORA) more known as Keke Napep and Okada riders in the 19 northern states have called and declared support for the 2023 Presidential bid of Professor Kingsley Moghalu, Njenje Media News reports.
The chairman of the coalition, Alhaji Nasiru Umar Ambursa, and nine states Chapter Chairmen with three from each of the three geopolitical zones at a press conference in Abuja yesterday, said they were deeply worried by the terrorism, banditry, kidnapping, poverty, unemployment, ethnic and religious problems in Nigeria that have plagued the nation and has been worsened since 2019.
“We are a grassroots trade association with over 10 million members in the 19 northern states. We are not a partisan political organization. After we observed closely the 2019 elections, the trend of Nigerian politics, and its major actors since then, we have concluded that Nigeria today is facing a very serious crisis and the cause is incompetent leadership, bad governance, corruption, and Nigerian politicians serve themselves and not the people.
“We are therefore unanimously calling on Prof. Moghalu to run for president in 2023, and we hereby pledge our support and endorsement for his candidacy,” the group said.
