Frequently Asked Questions


Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party.
First, our party is not about 'wrestling power' from the ruling and major opposition parties. Our goal is to bring about a national renewal and rebirth in the way we think and do things, and to create a NEW Nigeria.

We are more interested in a new Nigeria than in merely 'wrestling' and 'grabbing' power.

Yes, we do have structures in all 36 states and the FCT as well as outside Nigeria, as well as corporate governance structures and systems in place to drive our goal.
We intend to raise funds through members paying their membership dues every year, as well as freewill donations from party and non-party members. We are strictly crowdfunded.

However the maximum limit for donations by individuals and bodies is N20 million and nothing more.

We also intend raising funds by other innovative means.
No one single individual is funding our party. It is not true that any politician(s) is/are funding our party; that is unacceptable to us in the first place.
Nigeria's problems are myriad and complex. Our party has a deep understanding Nigeria's problems and intends tackle them.

We are a party of people who are ready to give their all so that our country may be truly great.

ANRP will engage all the identified problems bedevilling Nigeria as soon as we are elected to serve and we shall outline a short, medium and long term plan to resolve the issues and communicate this to Nigerians. We shall hold ourselves accountable to these commitments and report periodically to Nigerians.
Fixing the faulty structure of our society, creating a sense of belonging and ownership, building cohesion, creating abundance for all. Harnessing the energy, innocence, passion and creativity especially of the Nigerian youth, and preserving the environment are all key.

Health, education (developing our most important assets--our human resources), fixing power (which will enable businesses to grow and provide employment), reforming the public/civil service (the engine of the government) to make it more functional and serve Nigerians better; reforming law enforcement and justice delivery (to address the numerous cases of injustice which makes most Nigerians feel alienated), promoting a clean, safe, healthy, aesthetically appealing environment, eradicating hunger, achieving the sustainable development goals . . . all these are within our view.
Our party is different from others in many ways:

Our goal for Nigeria's renewal, rebirth and abundance for all is critical for which we strive to achieve day and night in or out of government.
We are not just another opposition party, we thrive in providing alternatives to the current state, as societies develop based on the quality of ideas generated and acted on.

We are not merely a purpose-built platform for the 2019 elections. We are purpose-built for achieving the ideals enshrined in THIS IS OUR

OWN (the name of our party manifesto). Please avail yourself of the content.

Our hallmark is good governance within our party, exemplified by openness, transparency, accountability, submission to public scrutiny in all we do, promoting diversity and inclusion as well as consensus in decision-making.

Our focus is on sustainability in all spheres of Nigerian life.

We have a firm commitment to the environment. We believe the environment holds a secret to our development that must be unraveled. We shall focus on environmental management and sustainability.

Our attention is not on crude, we are especially concerned with renewable resources.

Our focus is on the youth and future generations.

And so many more.
The totality of what we stand for defines us. We stand for RENEWAL, RENAISSANCE, RESPECT. We stand for all that is good for Nigeria. We stand for the youth, women, children, people with disabilities, the vulnerable, and future generations. We stand for an Abundant Nigeria.

We strive towards a just and equitable society that promotes diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunity for all.

We strive towards solutions that are long term and sustainable as well as immediate results.

We are dynamic, innovative, and forward-thinking.

We prefer a lean government that promotes enterprise, business, and trade and which enables the society to be productive.

We view governance as stewardship and sacrifice.

We are frugal and detest every form of excess, indulgence, and waste. We shall run government in line with best global practices.

We care for the environment.

In summary, we are pragmatists; constructive pragmatism can be said to be our ideology.
No our party isn't sponsored by any politician(s).

We are unlikely to merge with other parties, but if we do at all, the parties must fully buy into THIS IS OUR OWN (the name of our party manifesto) and all we live for.

Currently we are more interested in generating thought-provoking conversations on national renewal and rebirth, and bringing together citizens who have faith and hope that Nigeria can work. Being a fully-registered party, we shall be vying for every office in the land.
We have our head office in Abuja. We also have in some states and shall soon have offices in all 36 states of the federation.
Kindly email us at enquiries@anrp.org. or call 09096741573, 09064796674 to get the address of an office location near you.
Yes, were are a fully registered party by INEC.
The shadow government or shadow cabinet is one of ANRP's numerous innovations. Even though we don't run a parliamentary system in Nigeria, the concept of a shadow government is key even in our presidential system. We believe it is important for a country like ours especially with perennial mismanagement and unpreparedness.

Our shadow cabinet shall mirror the cabinets of the governments in power to interrogate their policies and activities and provide better alternatives according to THIS IS OUR OWN (the name of our party manifesto).

The purpose is for us as a party outside of government to stay engaged on issues of the day on a continual basis. One advantage is that when we get into governance we won't be needing 6 months to study reports compiled by transition committees, or to appoint ministers, who in turn may need another 6 months to under their portfolios.

The shadow cabinet members shall also on a regular basis produce alternative policy documents, views, position papers, etc to keep the Nigerian people informed, energized, hopeful, and imaginative about the possibilities of having a workable system that serves everyone on an equitable and sustainable basis.
As a party we see our diversity as one of our greatest strengths as a country. Numerous researches have proven that diverse, heterogeneous societies show more promise of speedy development than homogenous societies if the talents and resources of diverse societies are harnessed. This is precisely what we intend to do through good governance.

We aver that disunity in Nigeria is deliberately created to promote divide-and-rule, a colonial legacy firmly in place during the first republic, through the military era up the present day.

The phrase THIS IS OUR OWN (the name of our party manifesto and a party slogan) has been translated in over 50 Nigerian languages and growing, as against the traditional "three major languages". This is in an example of our policy and practice of inclusion and giving everyone a sense of belonging and ownership, our attention to details and diversity.
Due to bad governance and the antics of devious politicians many Nigerians don't correctly discern that there is nothing inherently wrong with any constituent groups in Nigeria beyond the stereotypes promoted by those who thrive on our collective disunity.

As a party we intend through all our activities, ideas, communications, to promote harmony by enlightening Nigerians to these truths. One of the more scientific things we can do is conduct a study of the origins of Nigerian languages to show to our people, that most of our languages are related and so we are one. This is called etymology.

We hope to unite Nigerians using THIS IS OUR OWN to share in our collective vision for a reborn, new, abundant Nigeria that serves all in an equitable and equal opportunity basis.
The principle of Federal Character is a good one, designed to take care of diversity in Nigeria by ensuring that disadvantaged areas of Nigeria catch up with the rest and are adequately represented in the workplace. But we believe it should have a shelf life.

We don't think that by now, merit and competence must be compromised at any time. We shall promote diversity, equal opportunity. This shall be guided principles. We note that rather than conform with the Federal Character principles, politics has taken over and Nigeria’s powerful people simply use the idea for political bargaining, cronyism, favoritism and nepotism. This has to stop.

The Federal Character Commission itself many times waives Federal Character compliance for many recruitments by the federal government, meaning that the policy itself has lost its bite. All of these issues will be reviewed by us.
A nation is as great as its public education system. This is our top priority. We will pay attention to school organisation, learning resources, learning climate in schools, the curriculum structure and content, as well as teacher skills, knowledge, attitudes and practices and all the factors that affect student learning outcomes.

We will work to have competent teachers by first improving on teacher remuneration and incentives to attract top talent to thr profession, restore the prestige and dignity of teachers and the profession through several means. Not everyone can be a teacher.
We will we overhaul monitoring and inspection, place schools on continuous scrutiny in order to identify inadequacies and fix them immediately.

We will pass the Educational Sector Reform Bill which has been at the National Assembly since 2007.

Implement the Gamaliel Onosode Committee report, and many other initiatives.

Children with special needs will be very well taken care of in our educational system.
We are gravely bothered that 13.2 million Nigeria children of school age are out of school, many of them almajiri. Many of the children don't get the care and attention all children deserve. Many of them are malnourished, are engaged in street begging, and even forced labour, some sleep on bare floors.

Religious freedom and practice is guaranteed, and will be ensured and protected. Under an ANRP government however, education for children of school age will be guaranteed and made compulsory. Every child of school age must be in school. The government will ensure that every child is taken care of, protected, and treated with dignity. Parents will be made to account for their children or face stiff consequences.

We will emplace a social welfare system to protect all children especially the weak and vulnerable. We will seek to promote integrated training schools with the children living at home with their parents and attending, or if attending boarding schools, such boarding institutions must be government-certified and able to provide standard lodging, feeding, clothing, extracurricular activities, etc. No Nigerian child will be allowed to live in and/or treated in conditions others describe as a form of modern-day slavery.

We shall continuously engage the with cultural and religious opinion leaders and interest groups to end the practice as it is presently, without taking away the positive ideals of the system which can be achieved through safer, better, and more dignifying ways.
Our large population as it is, is a big advantage, 70% of our population is said to to under age 30 which shows a lot of promise. We are also a very large market. However, at an growing population of 7 million a year, it portends a great danger, which needs to be addressed. On 1 January 2018 alone, UNICEF reports that 20,210 babies were born on that day. These are the recorded births which don't account for the unrecorded births in remote areas.

At this rate we shall be having 70 million children age 10 and below in 10 years. The UN has projected Nigeria's population to be up to 364 million by 2030 and 480 million by 2050,which is by far a faster pace than our infrastructure, social, as well as economic growth can possibly match. Other resources like available land can't be expanded to accommodate more such growing population. This alarmingly fast growing population without a faster growing economy to accommodate it means that more and more people will be continually under the poverty line.

Already up 70% of our population is living in penury. This is unacceptable.

We will use a series of approaches to persuade couples to limit the number of children they have to the basic minimum that they can bear and adequately cater for. Working with religious, cultural, and other opinion leaders we will work to influence this behaviour change most especially in cultures where polygamy is practised. We will also provide incentives to parents to keep adhere to this discipline, and also make it easy and convenient for willing couples.
We believe the resource control argument is not the argument we should be having and it is borne out of the inability to recognize the real resource that Nigeria has and to harness it; human resources. We note that the most successful countries in the world are those who deploy their best brains to innovate every aspect of society, to the extent that they export their innovations and inventions to other countries of the world. To this extent, the resource control argument is an admission of defeat. We want Nigerians to think forward instead and see the opportunities which lie ahead of us with a new paradigm.

We shall be willing to consider and review the arguments all the same, and are inclined to allowing more or total local control of resources found in the ground wherever they may be found. We believe exploration and exploitation of such resources is best done by private sector entities contracted by constituted authority with a larger portion of royalties and benefits going to regions where resources may be found. We believe in a trim Federal Government and will work towards that from Day One.

As a Green Party and a forward-thing one we think the era of oil is over. We think it best to focus on renewable resources that last a lifetime and utilized in perpetuity.
The SDGs capture the ideals of our party. The SDGs are:
1. End poverty in all its forms
2. End hunger and achieve food security, improve nutrition and sustainable agriculture
3. Ensure healthy lives, promote wellbeing for all at all ages; eliminate death and illnesses from pollution-related diseases
4. Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote life-long learning for all
5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
6. Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all
7. Ensure to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all
8. Promote sustained, inclusive, and sustainable economic growth; full and productive employment and decent work for all
9. Build resilient infrastructure, promote inclusive and sustainable industrialization, and foster innovation
10. Reduce income inequalities within and among countries
11. Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable
12. Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
13. Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts by regulating emissions and promoting developments in renewable energy
14. Conserve and sustainably use oceans, seas, and marine resources for sustainable development
15. Protect, restore, and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems; sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt and reverse biodiversity loss
16. Provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable, inclusive institutions at all levels
17. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnerships for sustainable development.
These are great, unquestionable and universal ideals. Even if these are achieved we shall continually strive to get better at them as we set further goals.
We are concerned that people with disabilities (PWD) who constitute 15% of our entire population are largely forgotten, excluded and even ill-treated in the manner our society operates.

People with disabilities demonstrate immense talent, giftedness, determination and resilience in the things they do. This very resourceful demographic in our society is one we can't afford to forget or prioritise. It is our primary objective to make things easy for them.

We treat PWD with the same dignity and respect every other person deserves, and give them equal opportunity.

Our party is working towards having are national PWD desk headed by the National Coordinator on Persons with Disabilities, a competent and passionate individual on PWD issues, whose task among others is to ensure that the interests and concerns of PWDs are always integrated in all our plans, programmes, policies, practices, and activities, now and when we get into office.
Many reports including the Presidential Committee on the Restructuring and Rationalisation of Federal Government Parastatals, Commissions, and Agencies (2012) seem to confirm this. The truth is that over the years, employment into the civil service has been done for political patronage. Many have been employed who don’t have desks and therefore hardly report to the office, yet they are being paid salaries. What about the problem of ‘ghost workers’? The Minister of Finance says over 50,000 of such names have been cleaned out from the payroll in the last one year! Nothing confirms that the service is bloated than this statement.

In spite of the investment of our past governments, and the assistance from interested partners to systemise our civil service, and do away with archaic ideas which lead to the phenomenon of ‘ghost workers’, it is surprising that we would still be battling with this issue. Our take is to ensure accountability takes root in the service, that those government pays actually work, and that we get a clear picture so as to understand how to move people around to more productive areas. Every Nigerian who draws a salary from the sweat, tears and blood of the taxpayer, must be productive to the extent of what they draw from Nigeria’s coffers.

We believe in a lean government. However, we believe that government should be the highest employer of labour.
The current minimum wage is low, about the lowest in the world. It's an issue we will address.

As a party, we want everyone: politicians, civil servants, even the private sector to be on the same minimum wage. Politicians should never be placed on high wages so that those whose hearts are not about service will stay away from public office. People who don't work for the government should also be on a basic wage they can live on.

The disparity between the lowest paid and highest wage earners in Nigeria is among the widest in the world. This too we will resolve.

Many top officials don't earn much with regard to their basic salary but have allowances and other perquisites in thousands of folds of their standard earnings. These are loopholes of 'legal corruption' we will address by making policies to limit allowances and ensure uniform standards of allowances apply to politicians and civil servants alike. There are wage disparities among different agencies within the same government. This too we shall address.

We believe that every Nigerian can and should earn a living wage and we want to work towards achieving this. More serious countries are already talking about Universal Basic Income but for us, cutting the excesses of politicians and others who constitute the 18,000 government officials who live on 35% of our total annual budget (Fika Report), and making our minimum wage a living wage is a good place to start from. It'll be ensured that owing salaries (and pensions) or bragging about paying up to date will be a thing of the past.

This way, we will free up a lot of funds that can go into increasing the minimum wage, to provide stable electricity, clean potable water, the best public healthcare system, quality public education, an efficient and reliable public transportation system, low food prices, and security of life and property. These are the things Nigerians spend the most of their hard-earned monies on. When these are taken care of, our people will have more money to spend on other things, to save, and to plan ahead. This is our goal.

We, through good governance and proper economic management will work to improve the value of the naira, such that a little can purchase much.
Green Parties share similar characteristics. We prioritize:

1. Grassroots democracy.
2. A holistic approach to justice, recognizing that social justice, economic justice and environmental justice depend on and support each other. We don't see justice from the perspective of what is obtained in law courts alone.
3. Environmental justice which itself is founded on 2 fundamental principles: that all people have the right to live, work, learn, and play in safe and healthful environments; and that people have the right to influence decisions that affect the quality of the environment in their communities, nations, and the world
4. Peace and nonviolence
5. Decentralization, federalism
6. Community-based economics
7. Women's, youth's and children's rights
8. Respect for and promotion of diversity
9. Global responsibility
10. Forward-thinking and focus on the future.

Just imagine a Nigeria where these are attained or being worked towards! Also, there is a coalition of Green Parties around the world, and it is surprising that until we came, there had been no party with green (environmental) affiliation in Nigeria. All over Africa – from Kenya to South Africa, Egypt, Mali, Senegal, and even countries that have gone through trauma like Somalia, their politicians have thought about environmental sustainability and thus floated green parties for decades. It is time Nigeria thinks about sustainability and stop wasting all our resources. ANRP is the linchpin for that innovation and initiative.
The formation of the party was unique in that for the first time in Nigeria’s history, a group of forward-thinking, diverse group with representation from all over the country rallied around an idea that it was time for the youth and not-so-young in Nigeria to try and do something about the country’s situation and quit complaining. This was in December 2016.

Just as our forebears did in the 1940s and 1950s, leading to the formation of the initial political parties that led Nigeria’s independence initiative, the ANRP launched out on social media and was able to gather some of Nigeria’s best brains and rally them towards the ideal of redefining the political space for good. In a space of two weeks, we were able to establish contact and get members from all 36 states of Nigeria and the Capital.

The ANRP de-emphasises personalities and focuses on ideas. This becomes even more imperative because we are a party whose time has come; a party powered by technology in an age of information; a party where dynamism is paramount, where a lot happens in short spaces of time, and much more will be achieved. We are not a party of moneybags or professional politicians who have no businesses or jobs and so have to wait to grab money for survival and excesses from the commonwealth. We are far ahead of the curve.
If you are age 18 and above, kindly log on to www.anrp.org.ng and fill the membership form.

Your status as a member is assured and guaranteed on faithfully paying your subscription fees.
To change from another party you may wish to write to your party informing them of your decision to leave. Submit all party materials in your possession including your ID card if you were issued one. Please ensure to pay up all outstanding dues/subscription fees before leaving.
We don't have 'owners'. Every member who has signed up and whose subscription is up-to-date has an equal voice as every other member. We also have fathers, mothers, uncles and aunties who came together to start the party. The party is for everyone, but with a keen focus on the need to capitalize on our youthful energy as a nation.
Kindly access and download THIS IS OUR OWN by simply visiting our website at https://www.anrp.org.ng/Manifesto.php

Physical copies shall soon be available.
Once a Nigerian is 18 years old the law permits them to join our party. We don't discriminate on any basis at all.

However, such an individual must agree to dutifully pay their subscriptions and be committed to the spirit and letter of THIS IS OUR OWN (the name we call our manifesto) and our constitution.
Yes. Everyone who looks forward to the best for Nigeria, driven by service above self most likely belongs in ANRP. We tend to prefer people who are not 'professional politicians' but people partaking in our party to give of themselves and to serve, not to milk a dwindling commonwealth presently going through dire straits.
Yes you can, and should.

People who work for the government have their fundamental rights to freedoms of association, of thought and conscience, and peaceful assembly guaranteed by the Nigerian constitution just like every other person.

Second and more importantly, the Supreme Court of Nigeria ruled that civil and public servants are free to join political parties if they so choose (as long as this doesn't affect the work that they do), and reaffirmed this decision 15 years later in January 2018.
Currently there are challenges with the 3 layers of the power value chain: generation, transmission, and distribution. We hardly generate enough power to as much as light 2 60 watts light bulb in 50 million homes at the same time in a country of 182 million citizens. In summary, the problem has to do with too much government control in the power value chain. In our opinion, the concept of one national grid alone is no longer a feasible and sustainable one. It is best to open up and liberalise the sector such that businesses, communities, local and state governments can generate, transmit, distribute, and utilize the energy they need and contribute the excess to the national grid.

We also promote the use of alternative and renewable sources of energy as wind, solar,and others. We have every intention of making Nigeria the solar electricity hub in Africa. Solar power is about the cheapest source of electricity in the world presently, and is clean and renewable. All building projects which qualify as luxury should have provisions for solar power integration as part of their design before they should be approved by the authorities. This will be a good start.

Having power projects scattered all over the country has positive national security advantages too as an attack on 1 or 2 power installations can't put the whole country in darkness as has been the case.
Given the opportunity to win elections and be Nigeria's leading party in government with dominant authority in executive and legislative positions we will:

1. immediately pass, sign into law, and honestly implement the Petroleum Industry Bill (PIB), the original version, in its entirety.
The FG will be the enabler of the private sector to run a competitive industry environment, and also the firm regulator to ensure fair play and to enforce standards and practices, and also be involved in strategic investments in the industry. Government-owned refineries will be operated through private-public partnerships with competent companies that understand the business to run them gainfully and productively; etc;

2. prioritise and promote local production towards self-reliance;

3. issue licences for modular refineries, and regulate production therefrom for optimal output, environmental protection, and eliminate waste. Instead of tagging them 'illegal refineries' we shall help standardise, and promote them, and also work with communities to create numbers of small refineries especially in the oil-producing areas;

4. develop indigenous capacity and capability in the sector. We shall support and fund it. This will be done among other means by solidifying the collaboration and partnership between government, industry/business, and academia. Petroleum institutes, and universities will be optimised. Our universities and polytechnics would begin to develop a series of initiatives especially in the area of refining;

5. work to reduce the dependence on petrol through providing steady electricity (to reduce to the barest minimum the use of generator sets); and also efficient public transportation system especially railway to reduce the use of automobiles which depend on petrol. Gas will be mostly used to power large turbines to provide electricity, for industrialisation, cooking, etc;

6. eliminate the use of bulk road vehicles (BRVs) to transport petrol but rather railway and pipeline networks;

7. review the entire value chain from the upstream (exploration and production of crude oil) to the midstream (gas processing) to the downstream (servicing, refining, distribution, retailing) sectors to ensure that they are all aligned with no disconnects in between. Licences will enable upstream sector players for instance, to themselves carry out downstream sector activities, instead of segregating them. Oil companies will provide for their energy needs and also contribute to their communities and to the grid;

8. ensure and guarantee availability of foreign exchange for all legitimate transactions. We intend to rely on technology to ensure the removal of sharp practices and also enable banks to become more active agents in this regard. Large players like oil companies will be enabled to deal transparently with banks in order to further liquefy the market;

9. increase the storage capacity of our strategic reserves and ensure to have products to last for six months to one year;

10. develop other areas of our economy (with special emphasis on human capital) in order to wean us off our fixation on oil and gas.

11. deal honestly and transparently with Nigerians. Where there is difficulty, we will come clean. We have nothing to hide or interests to protect aside from the common good of all.

Our party doesn't have room for personal ambitions, but our collective and shared goals as encapsulated in THIS IS OUR OWN (the name of our party's manifesto) and our constitution. Every single individual running for any office on our platform must demonstrate a thorough grasp of these ideals before a diverse team of party officials, even if contesting alone on the platform. It's therefore unlikely for untutored, unprepared persons to run for office on our platform.
Believe us because already we are doing novel things never done in our climes before like the shadow cabinet. This shows how determined to bring about a difference. Our shadow ministers volunteer their time and resources because to us, nation building is about altruism, patriotism, service, self-abnegation, and sacrifice. We can't suddenly change from these values on getting into government.

As a party we are open and transparent. Out of the existing 68 political parties, perhaps not more than10 of them have websites. We started out on day one by creating a website where information is uploaded from time to time to carry our members, and members of the public, along. We are the ONLY party with a transparent membership counter, which is made available to members. We have built a formidable number in a short while with every member having equal rights.

Also our finances shall be audited by external independent auditors with their reports made available for scrutiny.

The quality of ideas we put out there on a daily basis demonstrate our commitment and readiness. We can't begin to fumble after engaging in such a discipline for years.

We are more interested in the new Nigeria (in or out of office) than in merely winning elections and gaining power.
At less than age 18, Nigerian laws prevent you from being a registered member of a political party.

However, we have a provision and innovation whereby you may work with us as a youth volunteer pending when you come of age to be a full member of the party. Please contact the party via the numerous channels and speak with our leaders at your ward, LG, and State levels. Do note that you must have a student ID card to become a volunteer.

Also, do follow us on social media; Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube: @AbundantNigeria to stay in touch.
Our target is for every Nigerian of working/productive age to be profitably engaged. Our focus shall be particularly on young persons age 15-24 as a way of bootstrapping the economy. It used to be that a few decades ago, youths of this age were already contributing to society and we are not talking of child labour. In the developed countries, children just out of secondary school are actively encouraged to get some light work to show them some responsibility. This we believe is the starting point in employment creation.

We don't believe that the government should be the leading employer of labour, neither can it be, on a sustainable basis. The role of government in our view is to promote enterprise, trade, businesses, to create an environment for massive growth and explosion of these through deliberate policies and practices; for instance fixing the intractable electricity problems, increasing the ease of doing business especially for SMEs (small and medium scale enterprises), etc. However, there are jobs to be created in some sectors which the private sector will not get involved in because there may not be much profit to be made. Government must show due responsibility and frugality in handling such sectors to get the economy going.

Simply implementing and enforcing the Extended Producers Responsibility (EPR) policy will boost the waste-recycling subsector and create hundreds of thousands of jobs within months. Greening, tree planting, reforestation, oil spills control and erasing, enforcing and attaining zero open defecation by constructing thousands of conveniences will create numerous jobs within a very short while. This is an example of creating jobs in just one subsector. In all the sectors such policies and enforcements will open up spaces to provide employment.

Many jobs opportunities can be created, but it takes innovation and sincerity purpose which our party guarantees.

We think that the government should be the largest employer of labour.
Being a member of our party enables one to belong to a community of Nigerians working towards Nigeria's renewal and renaissance. This community strengthens and encourages each other with ideas, inspiration, strategies, etc towards birthing the Nigeria of our dreams.

It also provides a platform for those willing to run for office, and while in office provides institutional backing and support in carrying out activities and reforms at creating the new Nigeria.

Being a member of ANRP means you are on course to writing your name in gold in the annals of Nigeria’s history as one of those who saw the vision to turn Nigeria’s story around from one of infamy, to one of truly deserved glory.
We think naming a people 'Fulani herdsmen' isn't proper, but the question is understood.

We shall embark of on an overhaul and reorganisation of our security apparatus; our law enforcement system which is presently beset with many inadequacies from their entire structures to recruitment, welfare of operatives, training, equipping, and so on. Likewise the entire judicial system.

We shall refocus our security policy from regime security that protects people in power to national security which focuses on providing security for citizens, our society and nation.

Our intelligence-gathering is weak and this is what culminates in some of the challenges we have. Intelligence would mean detecting, tracking, investigating, preventing, neutralising, and eliminating threats to life and property before they happen.

We shall secure our borders through strict border control. maintain the territorial integrity of our country such that foreigners shall not come and give us problems. We shall be deploying every innovation and technology because we are a party of innovation and action.

There is abundance for pastoralists and farmers to thrive and prosper, and they have done so for ages. The problem has been that of bad governance and failure to administer our resources properly. With good governance, empathy, inclusion, equal opportunity, these issues can be permanently laid to rest, without future occurrence. We shall settle disputes and promote reconciliation and cohesion. We shall counter extremist ideologies by engaging citizens through public enlightenment processes and programmes.

We shall educate the populace for instance to stop the labelling on ethnic basis.

There are also other causes of the insecurity crisis like climate change: drying up of Lake Chad which makes people lose their jobs in the fishing business and the entire value chain, as well as desertification that makes lush green pasture and water difficult to access. As a green party we're committed to addressing all these.

However, offenders who kill, maim and destroy properties shall face the full weight of the law.
We support and encourage ranching for the following reasons:

1. it tends to better protect cattle from rustling. Cases of cattle rustling will be greatly minimised;
2. the quality of beef is enhanced;
3. more and higher quality milk and dairy products can be gotten from cattle that are ranched. More money is made from dairy products than from beef;
4. moving animals expended their energies and have reduced reproductive improvement;
5. domiciled animals eat less because they conserve energy from moving across long distances a small portion of the feeding is usually enough for them. This conserves water and reduces waste of food;
6. with hay making it is very easy to sustain feeding for 12 calendar months;
7. animals on farms are easily controlled for vaccinations against all schedule diseases that are reducing the international rating of our meat and hindering our export of meat and meat products. Such as foot and mouth disease, black quarter, anthrax, mad cow disease, and many more;
8. animal quarantine and monitoring is easy with animals on farms, it's easy to trace source of many diseases for proper national disease control planning;
9. it will reduce or eliminate farmer-pastoralist conflicts but rather enhance them as both would benefit from each other and both make more money.
Agriculture is one of our topmost priorities. Agriculture is more important to us than the oil sector fo many reasons:

1. It provides positive engagement for up to 70% of our populace. A rather small percentage of our populace is involved in the oil sector.
2. It provides food, all humans depend on food to survive not oil. Well-fed people are generally healthy and hardly fall sick.
3. The era of oil is fast coming to an end, the era of agriculture will never end.
4. Oil exploration, refining, etc hurts our environment, and it's also s non-renewable resource. Agriculture replenishes our environment and is renewable.
5. Agriculture has more by-products than oil. It can generally provide the energy oil does through biofuels, fertilizers, but oil can't replace agriculture.
6. We know that potentially there's more money in agriculture.

For these reasons we'll muster the political will and with all sincerity of purpose solve the problems of agriculture in Nigeria.

We intend to approach agriculture from a different perspective from what has bee, obtainable for decades. We'll approach it from the perspective of a business, not an avocation.

We will create markets, provide for storage and processing to add value and eliminate wastage; deploy technology for all-season, all-weather, all-year farming, and improve yield without compromising on quality or ethics.

We intend to make agribusiness a top revenue and foreign exchange earner above oil.

Through the Bank of Agriculture, and other institutions as well as deliberate policies funding for persons interested in agribusiness will have access to needed financing and other incentives.

We aim to achieve the delicate balance of making farmers wealthy through agribusiness, lifting tens of millions out of poverty, and at the same time making food abundant and inexpensive.
We see Nigeria as a land of abundance for all. We have every intention of reversing the trend of bad governance which alienates most Nigerians cause many of us to flee Nigeria in hopes of a better life elsewhere. We are very sad at the increased pace of illegal migration of our youth through the tortuous Sahara Desert in the last few years and will ensure Nigeria has an ABUNDANCE of youth employment to creatively engage our youth and curb the death of our youths through that risky venture to zero.
We see the disenfranchisement of Nigerians in the diaspora from voting in elections in Nigeria as unjust, inappropriate, and unacceptable.
Nigerian diasporans, according to records, contribute more to Nigeria's GDP than oil. Therefore such a very key segment of our population should not be continually precluded from having a say in choosing the people who run Nigeria despite their numerous contributions economic, intellectual and otherwise.

As a party we take our diaspora members very seriously. We see them as a resource to be tapped and maximized. We have a directorate specially dedicated to attending to their affairs and concerns. And indeed they have full voting rights and equal opportunity in our party.

Other nations even within Africa are rapidly reforming their electoral systems and giving bigger voices to their expatriates. Senegal recently granted them 15 seats on its parliament, meaning they can now be voted for. Nigeria being a major country in Africa must show a better example. For this reason, pushing for full diaspora voting rights is one of our key planks at ANRP and this shall be duly pursued in or out of power.
Yes they can. Our party already has many active members in the UK, US, Canada, Ireland, Turkey, Japan, France; up to 20 countries on 5 continents, with the numbers of members and countries growing.
Yes we are as culturally diverse as can be, and it is one of our greatest strengths.
This can be achieved by having a values reorientation, leading by example, and strict law enforcement without fear or favour. We shall embark on mass reorientation to bring our society to the standards that we see in positively advanced countries. Corruption, unruliness, indiscipline, disobedience of law and order, impunity, crime, misdemeanors, disrespect and other ills go together and would have to be tackled together. The trick, we believe, is to lead by example and to recruit our vibrant youths to be vanguards of society and to thereby create a great future for themselves.

Leadership by example is key. And so, we have embedded in THIS IS OUR OWN (our manifesto) and our constitution, the necessity for anyone elected on our platform to openly declare their assets and liabilities. This is important because the populace look up to leaders for example. We at ANRP have committed to doing right by Nigerians, to sacrificing our time and energy, and even our material resources towards the advancement of our beloved nation. We believe that Nigerians are good people, who enthusiastically follow good examples. We believe that good examples have become rare in the Nigerian political space for decades now.

We shall ensure transparency and openness in government transactions as well as encouraging public scrutiny. Procurement and other processes shall be done online to ensure transparency and inclusion with equal opportunity. Technology will deployed in transactions across board. Institutions shall be strengthened to perform their statutory roles. The system shall be continuously purged of corrupt persons as well as processes that allow for practices. Offenders shall be promptly prosecuted and face the full force of the law.
Depending on oil wealth is not sustainable as oil won't last forever. Many countries don't have oil but are doing better than Nigeria financially.
We're endowed and have advantages in many areas eg agribusiness, tourism, entertainment, etc. Others don't have what we have.

Presently, the government makes money from various sources but the monies are wasted and/or outright embezzled and don't end up in government coffers. We will stop this practice.

We will collect taxes dutifully. By utilising what we earn in taxes citizens will be more willing to pay. We will empower states to not only administer but to also regulate taxes. We will address the issues of multiple taxation which is a disincentive for tax payers.
We see the current central command-and-control structure with a mighty federal government as ineffective, inefficient, and a relic in terms. We believe in a weaker Federal Government, which would however be stronger in terms of visioning for the entire country.

The role of the federal government should be that of oversight, regulation, visioning, leadership, and setting of policy directions. The FG should concern itself with few key areas like defence and national security, and other such key areas that only the federal government can administer.
Local government autonomy should be granted and assured. States and local governments, should maximize their comparative advantage and pay taxes to the Federal Government. This is a prerequisite for fast-paced, holistic development that is sustainable.

The commitment to make Local Governments strong however behooves on us to ensure that only our strongest leaders occupy positions at that level. The current scenario whereby LG posts are reserved for the lowest intellects will be reversed. This is because it takes a lot of vision, collaboration, maturity and of course altruism to properly chart the course at the local level, and ensure that everything our people look forward to in governance, is provided and maintained.
The UN Economic Commission states that 'Good Governance has 8 major characteristics. It is participatory, consensus-oriented, accountable, transparent, responsive, effective and efficient, equitable and inclusive and follows the rule of law. It assures that corruption is minimized, the view of minorities is taken into account and that the voices of the most vulnerable in society are heard in decision-making. It is also responsive to the present and future needs of society'

We agree and adopt this as our definition of good governance, and shall work to build institutions to deliver these to Nigerians on a continuous basis and until it become the dominant culture.

We hold ourselves (as well as others) by the highest standards and shall rather emphasize and concentrate on Human Development Indices, Gross National Happiness, Gross Wellbeing, Corruption Perception Indices, etc which make meaning to everyday citizens, other than GDP which most don't understand. We believe these other indices speak to how much of good governance we are achieving, rather than the mathematic and static index called GDP. However, for the purpose of comparison, we shall still report the economy on the basis of GDP.
Nigerians love sport. Sports bring people together, sports generate happiness, sports provide a means of recreation, sports serves as source of generating revenue, sports create job. It is a means of unleashing untapped talents in our citizens especial the youth. We take sports very seriously.

To this extent, we shall take sports back to the grassroots again, rejigging sports festivals that bring our youth together. Festivals like the Principals Cup which served as a veritable source for football talents, as well as NIPOGA/NUGA games which threw up Olympic talents in the heydays of Nigeria, shall be revived.

We see sports as a money-spinner, a huge source of tourism, and indeed a source of national respect. Our motto is RENEWAL, RENAISSANCE, RESPECT! And so, the focus on sports is very fitting. While not taking our eyes off the need to be creative and produce what we need for ourselves through a focus on manufacturing, we believe sports is a platform for a country to groom its youth and produce a fit and agile population. We believe sports does a lot to reduce sickness in society.

In terms of specifics, we shall have a strategic review of all sports infrastructure in Nigeria, and ensure their revival and optimal use by drawing up a plan to that effect. We note that Nigeria has never put to optimal use, its past investment in sports infrastructure and we are here to change that!
We shall improve copyright laws, reinforce anti-piracy laws and strictly enforce them. We shall improve infrastructure particularly electricity, reduce taxes on income from entertainment and companies that employ Nigerians in the entertainment industry. These are just a few of the things we shall do.
