The National Interest Party (NIP) is designed to mainly function online.
Ours is an open democracy! Party decisions and elections will be conducted online allowing significant participation of members irrespective of physical location. We will welcome to our esteemed Leadership Cadre, at least 50,000 quality Nigerians from every part of the country, no matter in what part of the world they reside. We will welcome all Nigerians of voting age, particularly those who consistently use social media to express their displeasure with our government(s). Many hold valid voter’s cards but rarely vote. We aim to change that.
NIP will find, admit, encourage and support quality leaders to whom we can confidently entrust the development and long-term sustenance of our platform and our country. We will help them contest and win elections, and/or get appointed into public office, and assign to them, the roles of mentors and counsellors to the rest of us.
