- PEOPLES PROGRESSIVE PARTY was founded on a platform of
returning government, electoral control, spending control,
policing, and political authority to the teaming masses and
communities of Nigeria, who has been systematically and
institutionally abused, disenfranchised and enslaved, rendered
powerless and politically irrelevant in their own land by the
political class from the time of the colonialists to the present
came about as a product of necessity. It was born by a group of
dedicated and patriotic non-establishment and non-conforming
politicians while participating at the 2005/2006 PEOPLES'
NATIONAL CONFERENCE organized by the Pro-democracy group, PRONACO.
The party is fast assuming the consciousness of the nation.
PURPOSE of the Party is:
To democratically acquire, utilize, sustain and retain political
power for the sole purpose of rendering total service to the
people of Nigeria, Black and African people, and humanity as a
whole, based on the ideology and principle and practice of
federalism and progressivism.
To, after winning the elections, organize an all-inclusive
government, using the most competent, reliable, trustworthy,
committed, dedicated and honest Nigerians;
To manage a government rooted in the principles and values of
democracy, commitment to the welfare of all the people,
anti-corruption, good governance and justice for all;
To uplift the poor and oppressed Nigerian on the forgotten
streets and habitations across our country; those left to rot
and die by an uncaring government who see the people as
nuisance, rather than resources. PPP is a large tent for our
countrymen and women who share our belief that government has
grown too corrupt; has become too callous and has done very
To actively pursue programs, discussions and legislation leading
to a new constitution rooted in the people and a self-sustaining
structure for the union states of the federation.
To spread and distribute the power of State, to foster diversity
and to nurture creativity. We believe that the role of the State
is to enable all citizens to attain these ideals, to contribute
fully to their communities and to take part in the decisions
that affect their lives.
To build and safeguard a fair, free and open society, in which
we seek to balance the fundamental values of liberty, equality
and community, and in which no one shall be enslaved by class,
poverty, ignorance, or conformity.
To transform the system of governance so as to foster sustained
balanced development throughout Nigeria, facilitate
opportunities for all, promote programs and policies of
self-actualization and self-enhancement of Nigerians and their
communities; usher in genuine security, peace and
reconciliation, and implement programs for rehabilitation of all
victims of internal strife, epidemics and other disasters,
through the leadership role of the State in the economy to
ensure peace, equality and dignity of the human person and
equitable progressive development of the entire country on the
basis of public interest, equity and justice;
To champion the freedom, dignity and well-being of individuals.
We acknowledge and respect the right of every human being to
freedom of conscience and their right to develop their talents
to the full.
To build a nation in which all people share the same basic
rights, in which they live together in peace and in which their
diverse cultures and religions will be able to develop freely.

will seek the trust of Nigerians to earn it; not just by talking
or propounding empty ideologies or proposing abstract solutions in
their generalities without substance. To win the trust of
Nigerians, PPP has marshaled concrete plans and structures of
governance to create real and tangible partnerships between the
government and the various communities that make up our country.
Our party is built on the simple and clear principle of
partnership with the people in the day-to-day exercise of
governance. Our government will be a real partnership between the
people, their communities and the government agencies.
structure shall be as follows:
Government Agencies and Ministries will continue to provide
technical and logistics expertise as they now do in vetting,
certifying and supporting government projects and services in
our various communities.
All funds budgeted for community development projects and
services will be held in a single consolidated account in
Nigeria. They will no longer be handed over to the Ministries
and Agencies of Government as currently practiced to be spent as
they deem fit without proper oversight. This is where the root
of corruption lies; that has become so endemic and
institutionalized in the government. This is also where the
disconnect lies between the government and the governed.
On a given day every year, to be set by an enabling law, each
community will be mandated to elect its Community Project Funds
(CPF), which shall be responsible to handle the payment and
execution of projects and services due the community in that
The Agencies and Ministries of Government will assist the
community in the tender and bidding process, technical
evaluation, and project execution expertise for any given
However, the communities through their respective CPFs shall
disburse funding for the project directly to the contractors
without resorting to the Government Ministries or Agencies.
The disbursement shall be in the form of Government checks or
vouchers payable through the Central Bank of Nigeria to the
account of the contractor in a manner so controlled as to avoid
direct transaction in cash between the community and the
utilizing this simple approach, PPP aims to empower the people to
make final decisions in the execution of projects meant for their
communities. In doing so, we ensure that the communities get the
full accounting of projects earmarked in the budget, not just a
fraction of it distorted to divert the remainder of the funds to
the private pockets of corrupt public officials.
intend to apply this basic principle; "LET
THE PEOPLE CONTROL THE MONEY" in various sectors
of our national endeavor, such as, Projects and Services,
Education, Healthcare, etc. The money
belongs to the people of Nigeria. PPP will let them control it.
We will take it out of the hands of the corrupt elite. This is the
only way to move our country forward in the mess that we now find
revolution to rebuild and reconstruct Nigeria is predicated on six
Decentralization of infrastructure delivery to empower local
solutions to local problems.
Decentralization of law enforcement to achieve lasting and
enduring internal security; Implementation of local control of
policing through Community Police Boards, CPBs.
Implementation of local control of basic education through
Community School Boards, CSBs.
Implementation of local control of projects and service delivery
through Community Project Funds, CPFs.
Implementation of local control of healthcare delivery through
Community Health Cooperatives, CHHs.
Implementation of local control of electoral voting through

believe that once we engage the Nigerian people with this
alternative of a tripartite governing partnership made up of the
government on the one hand, the community on the other, and the
people to close the loop, we will get a listening public and a
sympathetic ear. We can only get out of this hole by our
collective effort. The current approach of government-knows-all
and government-does-all with the people's money clearly isn't
working and, in fact, cannot work; certainly not in the midst of
such massive and mind bungling corruption so institutionalized in
