The National Consultative Front (NCFront), a prominent political alliance comprising key opposition factions in Nigeria, has announced ongoing efforts to bring together major contenders in the 2023 presidential race.

Notably, it aims to unite figures like former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, Peter Obi, and Rabiu Kwakwanso to establish a new formidable coalition to counter the governance shortcomings of the All Progressives Congress (APC). Prof. Pat Utomi’s group, as conveyed by its national spokesperson Mallam Hamisu San Turaki in a Tuesday statement, disclosed this initiative.

NCFront praised and commended Mr. Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 election, for his adept political strategies in rallying prominent opposition figures to challenge the ruling APC’s governance.

The group highlighted Obi’s consultations with Atiku, the PDP’s presidential candidate, and other key opposition figures, which have been endorsed by NCFront.

The group revealed that these consultations are a prelude to the launch of various activities planned by a newly established committee. This committee aims to facilitate and coordinate the reorganization and merging of major opposition leaders and groups to form a new ideological movement. NCFront stated that this reorganization process is expected to present an alternative Mega Political Movement for Nigerians by March 2025. It also aims to prioritize the mobilization of politically aligned leaders and groups nationwide into a single ideological mega-political platform, regardless of their current party affiliations.

“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,” the statement said.

“It is worthy of note that the above modus 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 Sanni, 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.

“The committee is billed to Flag off the process of its political realignment and intervention 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.”

On the question of who becomes the candidate of the new movement in 2027, the group said that it had already been foreclosed and “will only be discussed and popularly resolved after the formation of the mega movement”.

It added that the leading presidential candidates in the 2023 elections and other political gladiators in the consultations have already decided to jettison their 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,” it said.
