Aggrieved PDP, APC, APGA Bigwigs Float New Political Party ‘PMP’
Splinter groups from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have teamed up with others in the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) and the All Progressive Congress (APC) to propose a new party to be called Peoples Mega Party (PMP).
The new political group, PMP, which mainly consist of aggrieved members of the PDP, APGA, LP, AP and APC, held its maiden meeting in Abuja yesterday, and unanimously adopted Chief Perry Opara as its interim chairman.
During the party’s National Executive Council/National retreat, Opara told the delegates that the mission of the new political platform is to provide a very focused and patriotic body deviod of negative traits of impunity and confusion.
‘’They have decided to form something very new and they are of the opinion that they should hand over the party to younger elements who are less corrupt and who can fight for the interest of the people.
‘’There are also disenchanted people from the APC that feel that they want a new place and that is what it is. Today marks the birth of this new party.”
Mr. Opara is a top associate of Ahmed Gulak, a former political adviser to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan.
The yet-to-be registered party adopted the picture of a human being as its logo, while its slogan is: “Forward Nigeria.”
