Former governor of the old Kaduna state, Alhaji Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa, yesterday said if top opposition parties like Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) can agree to an effective alliance, the ruling Peoples Democratic Party would be sacked from office come 2015.
Speaking in an interview with Blueprint in Kaduna, Musa, who is the chairman of the Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP), said the alliance would stop the humiliation suffered by all political parties in the hands of the PDP.
Musa, who is also the National Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), described a democratic political alliance as a panacea to the PDP’s continued rule.
“The alliance among ACN, CPC and ANPP will work because they cannot continue to suffer from humiliation of the PDP. All political parties in the country must come together to unseat PDP, whether through merger or democratic political alliance,” he said.
On its possible impact on Nigeria, Musa said, “It is necessary to unseat PDP in Nigeria for the good of Nigerians and for the good of the country. ACN and CPC can work together because they are both Nigerian parties with similar political ideologies. They can reach agreement to work together and form an alliance against 2015.”
ACN leader, Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu, recently led a team of party bigwigs, including two serving governors, to the Kaduna home of former presidential candidate of the CPC, General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), for an alliance talk ahead of 2015.
Similarly, ANPP national chairman, Chief Ogbonnaya Onu, also said in Abuja during a recent meeting of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) that the party was interested in joining the alliance talks.
