The storm is certainly gathering ahead of the 2019 general elections as the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), presented a certificate of registration of a political party to Ms. Eunice Uche Atuejide a female Taekwondo Black-belt holder.
The certificate for the registration of the National Interest Party (NIP) was presented to Ms. Eunice Atuejide by the INEC Chairman Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, at the INEC headquarters in Maitama, Abuja on January 10, 2018 and was witnessed by the Chairman of the Inter Party Advisory Council Alhaji Mohammed Nado.
Atuejide who got her Black-Belt in Taekwondo in 2003, has a knack for quality administration in Nigeria, and she strongly believes that unless political parties come up with candidate who genuinely has the interest and service to humanity at heart, the country will not make headway in the forthcoming 2019 general elections.
The Enugu-born black-belt holder cum Lawyer is also a lover of football, she follows the premier league, the UEFA Champions league and the FIFA World Cup with passion. Sport Intelligence also gathered from the official website of the National Interest Party, that it would be very difficult for issue of Youth Development to be addressed without looking critically at Sports development.
After becoming a Black-belt holder in Taekwondo in 2003, Atuejide proceeded to the UK where she graduated as a Lawyer in 2014 and was called to the Bar in 2016. She also holds a Master degree in Business Administration from the University of Siegen, Germany and have visited and worked in over 76 countries and 120 cities in the world.
For a mother of five in her late thirties, Atuejide’s quest for Nigeria to have a political party that could address pertinent issues affecting the national development of Nigeria, and with interest in Youth development prompted her to pursue the registration of the National Interest Party (NIP).
With the emergence of the National Interest Party, Nigerian youth now have an opportunity to project youthful candidates with a vision for the nation. Interestingly, this feat is actually coming at a point in life, where Africa and the world celebrate the emergence of a footballer, who became president-elect of Liberia.
