The Peoples Alternative Political Movement (TPAP-M), a political association, has called for the need to close the widening gap between the rich and the poor in Nigeria.

This is contained in a statement by Mr Jaye Gaskia and Prof. Omotoye Olorode, members of TPAP-M Secretariat on Tuesday in Abuja.

The group said it would not relent in its effort to free Nigerians from the menace of widening inequality.

It said as political parties intensified campaigns ahead of the 2023 general elections, it would continue to advocate for a system that would free Nigerians from the “shackles of devastating capitalism”.

It said as build up to the election, it would engage candidates to public debates to know their agenda for the masses, who had suffered from elite capitalism over the years.

The group urged media organisations to provide their platforms for interviews and programmes, to make case for a workable system in Nigeria.

TPAP-M said it inaugurated a 50-member campaign organisation on Nov. 9 as part of efforts to champion the course of the poor.

It said the campaign organisation, which, would be chaired by Prof. Omotoye Olorode, had nine committees.

According to the statement, some of the committees are on Education and Research, Humanitarian, Social Intervention and Community Support.

Others, according to the statement, are Public Sector Committee; Contact and Grassroots Committee, Media and Public Communications Committee.

Meanwhile, members of the organisation are Mr Jaye Gaskia, National Coordinator, National Spokesperson and Chairman Public Sector; Mr Okon Ekanem-Vice Chairman, South.

Others are Hauwa Mustapha, Deputy National Coordinator and Deputy National Spokesperson and also Chairman, Socialist Transformation of Nigeria (CAST) Stakeholders Committee. (NAN)
