FIRST and foremost, I wish to commend National Restoration Party (NAREP) for successfully holding a party convention to choose new office bearers and amend some clauses in their party constitution recently.
This surely is what democracy entails and it brings a sense of strong civility into the party.
I only hope that other parties will take a leaf from NAREP and never use underhand methods to always shift goal posts for the benefit of the top hierarchy only but use a convention as a widely accepted norm for putting leadership in place.
It is said that a leader who does not groom others is like a gardener who waters weeds instead of crops.
Leaders should embrace the tenure limit of their being in their positions for others to also take over when it is time up.
Let us also take criticism as the basis for our analytical and well informed decision-making and not otherwise.
However, it is with sadness that intra-party dialogue is becoming unacceptable in most political parties in the country.
This is very unfortunate.
