Participate Actively in Politics, Media Owner Advises Nigerians


BY SEGUN ADEBAYO, ABUJA – The Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Blueprint Newspapers Limited, Alhaji Mohammed Idris Malagi, has called on the people of Niger State to actively participate in politics and not be passive onlookers in the affairs of the state and the country.

Speaking when he registered at the ongoing membership and revalidation of APC registration exercise at his polling unit in Malagi, Gbako Local Government Area of Niger State recently, Alhaji Idris Malagi applauded the peaceful conduct of the exercise at his polling unit and called all members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state to go out and pick or revalidate their membership cards in their various units across the nooks and crannies of the state.

In his words, “It is important that as Nigeria continues to deepen her democracy, we must all join hands to grow democracy and build our communities, state and country by being active participants, instead of passive onlookers.”

According to the newspaper publisher who is also the chairman of the Abuja-based WeFM, “I am delighted with the conduct of the registration exercise. It is an indication of the determination of both existing and prospective members’ desire to grow the party and deepen democracy in Niger State. I call on all members and those who want to join to go to their various polling units in the state to register.”

The media mogul said he was following the footsteps of President Muhammadu Buhari and Niger State Governor, Alhaji Abubakar Sani-Bello and other party leaders in and outside the state, who have registered at their polling units in Daura, Kontagora and other parts of the country, adding, “I urge you all to ensure that the exercise is peaceful. Nothing works in an atmosphere of rancor and violence.”

“I commend President Muhammadu Buhari and Governor Sani Bello for providing level playing grounds for all existing and prospective members to exercise their right to register freely without any hindrance,” he said.

Alhaji Idris Malagi was accompanied by APC stalwarts, associates, friends and supporters. He would later retire to his Malagi residence and observe the Juma’at prayers at Malagi Central Mosque.

Some of the APC stakeholders who accompanied him included Senator Ibrahim Musa,  Hon. Marafa Ahmed Guni, member representing Chanchaga Local Government Area at the Niger State House of Assembly, Hon. Ibrahim Lalalo, Chairman Chanchaga Local Government Area and Niger State ALGON Chairman, Hon Mudi Mohammed Suleja, Hon Yusuf Shuaibu Mami, former member, Niger State House Assembly, Alhaji Lawal Abbas (Former Commissioner, Solid Mineral), among several others.
