The National Consultative Front, (NCFront), has applauded Mr Peter Obi, Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party in 2023, for his political moves to rally leading opposition leaders in the country to challenge the misrule of the country by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The NCFront, a major political consortium of leading opposition forces in Nigeria led by Prof Pat Utomi, said that it endorsed Peter Obi’s meeting on Monday, with Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and other leading opposition figures in the country, adding that has been adopted by the group “as a teaser to the flag off of a series of activities already lined up by a New Committee recently set up by the NCFront to facilitate and coordinate Realignment and Fusion of leading opposition leaders and forces towards the formation of a new ideology base and value driven ultra Mega Political Movement based on rapprochement and realignment of opposition political leaders and forces to check growing misrule of the APC and save Nigeria from imminent collapse.”

The group in a statement signed by its national spokesperson, Mallam Hamisu San Turaki,  stated that the realignment and fusion process, which is expected to throw up an alternative Mega Political Movement for Nigerians by March 2025, is expected to prioritise the mobilisation of like-minded political leaders and forces across the country into one ideological mega political platform irrespective of their present political parties.

“To this extent, the question of merger of political parties is relegated to the background as secondary and can only be entertained if it becomes necessary after the formation of the new mega party by like-minded political leaders and groups in the country.

“It is worthy of note that the above modu operandi was adopted at the inaugural meeting of the Committee hosted in Lagos on 6th February, 2024 by Prof Pat Utomi. Members of the Broad based Realignment and Fusion Implementation Committee include Prof Pat Utomi, Engr Buba Galadima, Senator Shehu Sani, Amb Mrs Nkoyo Toyo, Barr Ladipo Johnson, Mallam Ibrahim Ali Ansami, Mr Adai Edwin Adai, Obongawan Barbara James, Barr Promise Adewusi, mni, Mrs Chinyere Oforkansi, Mallam Hamisu San Turaki, among others.”

It said the committee is billed to flag off the process of its political realignment  next month by hosting major consultative meetings with leading opposition presidential candidates in the country, especially Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi and Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso.

“This is to be followed by joint national intervention meetings and summit of like-minded political leaders and groups in the country on the state of Nigeria, as a prelude to initiating a broad based ideological and value driven political movement and ultra Mega political party to save Nigeria from growing misrule of the APC.

“Finally, the question of who becomes the flag bearer of the new Movement in 2027 has already been foreclosed and will only be discussed and popularly resolved after the formation of the mega movement as the leading presidential candidates in the 2023 elections and other political gladiators in the consultations have already decided to jettison their personal political ambitions for the formation of a formidable opposition movement capable of saving everyone from an imminent national mishap. So, National Salvation first is the guiding rule of this political intervention of the Nigerian opposition and any individual, no matter highly placed, found pursuing personal political agenda risks expulsion from the movement,” the statement added.
