2019: Obasanjo’s ADC, 30 parties in talks to unseat Buhari, APC

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari 

Former president Olusegun Obasanjo and his party, the African Democratic Congress (ADC), have announced plans to unveil a mega alliance in June.

The move, according to the party, was part of the resolve to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019.

National Chairman of ADC, Okey Nwosu, told ThisDay that ADC has opened talks with about 30 other registered political parties in the country.

Nwosu said, “We have started the reorganisation of the party, and by June, we are going to address the nation on the way forward and the promise ADC has for Nigerians.

“By June, we are going to address the nation on the way forward and what ADC has in stock for Nigeria and Africa.

“We are just working on a document to create a continental brand from the ADC, a model political party like no one before.”

Of what would become of the present leadership of ADC after the merger, Nwosu said, “Our party had its last national convention in 2015 and at that time, we said the founding national executives could continue in their offices until such a time that the party will start to take a real life.

“With this fusion, we are undergoing now and the membership we have, I feel we are taking a new life. So any moment from now we are going to fix our convention.

“The most important thing for people like me is that I have founded a party that eminent Nigerians approve as a proper vehicle to address the inadequacies that brought about the political situation in our country.

“So I am fulfilled and I am like a missionary on a mission of nation-building. Position doesn’t matter to me and most members of the party. My preoccupation from now on is how to move this party to the Villa and state government houses in Nigeria.”
