Coalition led by Agbakoba’s NIM to seal alliance with LP, SDP, ADP, Others today
…As PDP gets ready to embrace all ahead of 2019
The face of 2019 presidential election fireworks is gradually taking shape.
Just as the lead opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is working on a similar mission of alignment, today, the Conveners of Nigeria Intervention Movement (NIM), known as the Third Force Movement in Nigeria, will adopt a political party for the 2019 elections.
A statement issued by the Media Assistant to the National Publicity Secretary, Olubori Obafemi Isah, said the group will conclude talks with Labour Party (LP), Action Democratic Party (ADP), Social Democratic Party (SDP), United Progressive Party (UPP), among others in a bid to form alliance for the 2019 elections.
NIM averred that it is about to actualise the vision of its conveners as a fresh breed ideological platform conceived to reorder the political culture and governance system of Nigeria by adopting a credible political party towards the engagement of the 2019 elections.
“Our coalition talks with like-minded political parties in the last two months will be cemented by the National Executive Council (NEC) of NIM on Tuesday in Abuja with a two pronged decision of adopting a credible political party for NIM as well as the formalisation of NIM electoral alliance with likeminded political parties such as LP, SDP, ADP, UPP towards a grand coalition for a New Nigeria.”
He said those expected to be at the Tuesday meeting, which would be jointly presided by Mr. Olisa Agbakoba (SAN) and Dr Abduljalil Tafawa Balewa are members of the National Executive Council and Steering Committee, Zonal and State Coordinators as well as Principal Officers of the national secretariat of NIM.
According to the statement, NIM is considering adopting a rainbow coalition in the forthcoming gubernatorial elections in Ekiti State which is most likely to be anchored on the ADP with the formidable collaboration with the SDP and LP in ensuring that the fresh breed third force movement deliver Ekiti from the manipulation and misrule of “stomach infrastructure” foisted on the Ekiti people.
