The Third Force Movement under the umbrella of the National Consultative Front (NCFront) has elected coordinating officers in the South-west to pioneer the movement’s activities in the zone ahead of its planned launch of a mega party on 8th March 2022 in Abuja.

The exercise was conducted during a General Assembly meeting of the movement which held in Ibadan on Thursday, 24th February, 2022.

NCFront is led by a group of Leaders of Conscience that includes, Prof Pat Utomi, Prof Attahiru Jega, Dr Olisa Agbakoba SAN, Hon Dr Usman Bugaje, Prof Kingsley Moghalu, Engr Buba Galadima, among others

The much awaited mega party is an alternative platform that will comprise various stakeholder groups, and civil society organisations that are poised to wrestle political power from the two main dominating political parties in Nigeria (All Progressives Congress and People’s Democratic Party).

The group had in different forums in the past muted their concern about growing level of socio-economic and political challenges in the country due to lack of good governance and enjoined the support of Nigerians to take over power and change the situation.

The assembly elected the following leaders to run the affairs of the movement in South-west: Mr Lanre Adenuga from Lagos State, elected as Chairman, Engr Jagun Abiodun from Ogun State was elected as Vice Chairman, while Hon Lanre Fadahunsi from Osun State emerged as the Secretary, while Mr Olusola Ayodele from Oyo State became the Treasurer.

Others elected by the zonal congress include, Barr Thompson Akinyemi, Esq from Ondo as Publicity Secretary while Wasiu Olanrewaju from Osun State was voted as Youth Leader and Prince Adesina Bashorun from Ogun State endorsed as Elder and Barr Ademola Okeya, Esq from Ekiti became Legal Adviser of the Zone.

According to the Communiqué issued at the end of the meeting, signed by the new Chairman and Secretary of the Third Force Movement in Southwest, the new zonal leadership was subsequently inaugurated by the Head of National Secretariat, Sir Olawale Okunniyi.

In his address, the National Secretary of NCFront and Convener of the Third Force Movement of Nigeria, Sir Olawale Okunniyi described the NCFront as a movement of Leaders of Conscience initiated to rescue the country from pervasive misrule and growing impunity in government that have cast doubt and gloom on the future of Nigeria.

According to Okunniyi, why the third force movement was yet to adopt any political party in spite of the agitations of Nigerians, was due to pressure on the leadership of the third force to accommodate more interested movements, stakeholders, and allies into the fold.

He, however, commended the leadership of the Nigerian Labour Movement (NLM) for being very instrumental in actualizing the third Force mission to rescue the country and promised that leaders of the Third Force Movement shall be part of the Nigeria Workers political conference that will hold in Abuja on 2nd March 2022.

The National Secretary also welcomed some new movements launched recently into the third force under the umbrella of NCFront.

He also assured that the country would witness the birth of the much awaited people’s movement soon as plans have been perfected to launch the mega party by the first week of March.

Okuniyi said some of the parties being consistent for adoption and fusion of the various partners are: People’s Redemption Party (PRP), African Democratic Congress (ADC), National Rescue Movement (NRM) and Zenith Labour Party (ZLP).

He also implored the leaders and delegates from the six states in the Southwest zone to accommodate more youths and women into the fold, saying that the movement is about the youths and the vulnerable.

He said the third force in Nigeria is the government in waiting as Nigerians are tired of the self serving rule of the present parties in power, urging all Nigerians to support the ballot revolution of the movement in 2023.
