The plan to defeat the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari and his political party, All Progressives Congress in 2019 thickens on Monday as the main opposition, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and 38 other political parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU).
The plan is to work together and defeat Buhari in the 2019 general election.
What makes the MoU more interesting is the including of the Reformed All Progressives Congress, a faction that broke away from the APC, led by a former ally of the President, Buba Galadima.
The memorandum states that “parties shall promote a positive reaction to the above failures of the present regime and to give hope to all our people.”
“The parties shall ensure that the coalition is committed to working together in support of the single presidential candidate to contest the 2019 Presidential election in order to successfully enthrone a true democrat who will salvage the nation from the misrule of the APC government.”
Among the political parties that signed the agreement are the Action Alliance, Alliance for Democracy, Africa Democratic Party, Action Democratic Party, All Grand Alliance Party, Action Peoples Party and Advanced Congress of Democrats.
Those who signed included Better Nigeria Progressive Party, Democratic Alternative, Democratic Peoples Party, Grand Democratic Party of Nigeria, Green Party of Nigeria, KOWA Party, Labour Party, Mass Action Joint Alliance, and Masses Movement of Nigeria.
Others are the National Conscience Party, New Generation Party, National Unity Party, Peoples Alliance for National Development and Liberty, Peoples Progressive Party, People for Democratic Change, Peoples Democratic Party, Providence People’s Congress, Restoration Party of Nigeria, Unity Party of Nigeria, All Grassroots Alliance, National Interest Party, Nigeria Democratic Congress Party, Progressive Peoples Alliance , and Young Democratic Party, among others.
Another pressure group known as the Nigeria Intervention Movement equally appended its signature to the agreement.
