About KOWA

KOWA was registered as a political party on July 16, 2009, by a group of Nigerian Civil Society activists, professionals and technocrats.

The founding members of KOWA Party consist of men and women of integrity who wish to contribute to making Nigeria a country where there is economic justice, political sanity, peace, stability, human development and social progress; a country governed in the best interest of the majority who are at present, mostly poor, struggling people, as opposed to the current situation in which there is gross economic injustice and a wide gap between the rich and the poor.

We are mostly political activists, professionals and politicians who did not find a level playing ground in the god-father-dominated political parties. This means that we are not the typical, conventional, rotten politicians’ clique.

The state is only custodian of the country’s goods and natural endowments and holds them in trust for the people; it is also the prime distributive and redistributive agency of resources and public goods; egalitarianism should be the underlying principle of this function of state; to this end, it has a moral responsibility to guarantee equitable access and benefits for every citizen.

When instruments of state, as well as political and economic power are applied to ends other than the common good and used to shape society in a way favorable to the ruling class and a tiny minority, thereby creating historical and structural inequalities, the state is obliged to redress the situation by privileging the disadvantaged members of the Republic.

The state exists as an instrument of the people; it should regulate, restrain or limit individual freedoms and rights only in so far as is necessary to enable the security and well being of the community; the individual, on his or her part, consents to surrender certain freedoms in the interest of the common good ...
