Stakeholders of the NCFront and the Third Force Party Movement in Nigeria have declared a three-day mourning for victims of the Kaduna train attacks, in which several Nigerians were  either killed or missing.

This comes as the stakeholders, in a statement made available to Prime Business Africa,  renewed their vow to  mobilize Nigerians for political change and constitutional referendum.

The groups also hinted that it is now set to unveil the Third Force Movement Party at the National Convention in Abuja in mid April

The Third Force Party Movement in Nigeria is one of such organizations that have  spared a thought for victims of the Kaduna-Abuja train attack. It criticised the Nigerian government for what it said was its failure to guarantee security of lives and property for citizens.

“Leaders of Conscience and Stakeholders of the Third Force Movement in Nigeria under the umbrella of the National Consultative Front (NCFront) regret to announce our sadness and mourning over the murder of our close allies, the leaders of the Trade Union Congress (TUC), members of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) as well as innocent Nigerians by terrorists during the Kaduna – Abuja Train Bomb Attack last Monday,” the party stated on Sunday night.

“The movement driven by eminent leaders of conscience, including icons of the Nigerian civil society and labour movement rising from its National Stakeholders and General Assembly Meeting at the weekend queried the incapability and helplessness of the Nigerian State and Government in tackling rampant and growing incidents of indiscriminate killings of Nigerians and the pervasive insecurity in the country in spite of the various assurances made to raise the expectation of Nigerians during the 2015 and 2019 election campaigns respectively.”

The statement further reads in part:

“For us, it only shows clearly now that the Nigerian government and the broad political class ruling Nigeria lack capacity and competence to lead and secure Nigeria, as it now appears to all Nigerians that they must have recklessly seized power from the electorate during the 2019 elections since the Nigerian peoples could not have elected an inept and lack-lustre government such as this with their eyes wide opened having seen them fail woefully in their first term in office except jazzed or arm twisted

“We, therefore, wish to call on all Nigerians, especially the over 10 million members and supporters of the Third Force Movement in Nigeria and in the Diaspora to rise up in unison immediately against these failed politicians and rulers in government and their political parties and eject them from political power in Nigeria without fail or delay, as they have done more harm to the well-being of the country since the inception of civil rule.

“To this end and in honour and memory of our fellows and innocent citizens, whose lives have been wasted in one avoidable killing or the other by these self serving political traders in power, ruling by stolen mandate of the Nigerian peoples, we wish to declare three days of mourning for sober reflection, while mobilizing for constitutional referendum and political system change in Nigeria, from Monday, 4th April to Wednesday, 6th April, 2022. All stakeholders and allies of our Movement and well-meaning Nigerians are expected to adorn black either as band or a touch of their outfits as expression of mourning and dissatisfaction with the political rulers of Nigeria.

“Finally, in preparation for the next elections in Nigeria and as our alternative agenda to rescue Nigeria and recover the stolen mandate of the Nigerian electorates from these clique of murderers in power, we wish to announce that the unveiling of our much awaited Third Force Movement Mega Party will now take place during the National Convention of our adopted party slated for mid April, 2022.

“Therefore, all allies, sympathizers and supporters of the 2023 Ballot Revolution of the Third Force Movement are enjoined to register with the Third Force Alternative People’s Party immediately it is unveiled to enable us collectively take back our country from the inert political traders in power.”
