2019: Third Force unites against APC, PDP, as Agbakoba’s PT signs pact with OBJ’s ADC



Barring any last minute hitches, the Third Force Movement in the country, will any moment this week, formalise an arrangement which will take on the old breed politicians of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the general elections billed for next February.


A statement signed by Dr. Segun Awe Obe of the Directorate of Media Bureau, Nigeria Intervention  Movement (NIM), said a coalition and merger process being facilitated by the NIM ahead of the 2019 elections, the Olusegun Obasanjo’s African Democratic Congress (ADC) and the Olisa Agbakoba-led People’s Trust (PT) have signed a pact to collapse structures and field candidates of both parties for the 2019 elections on a common platform.


The statement reads: “Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), to effect the Strategic Merger between PT and ADC, were jointly signed by Dr. Olisa Agbakoba (SAN), National Chairman and Chief Raph Nwosu last week in Abuja “Similarly, the Dr. Gbenga Olawepo Hashim and Dr. Jay Osi Samuels-led Alliance for New Nigeria had earlier entered into a separate pact to fuse with the People’s Trust, PT in a strategic fusion for the 2019 elections,   termed  Alliance for People’s Trust, APT in anticipation of an eventual merger with the Obj’s ADC, which will be sealed in the coming days.


“The strategic alliance of PT with ANN has, however, produced a consensus presidential candidate in Dr. Gbenga Olawepo Hashim, an energy expert from Kebbi State at the National Convention of PT, which held on Saturday, 6th October 2018 at the Lagos Airport Hotels, Ikeja, Lagos.


“The budding initiative for merger/alliance among the third force political parties to field and position fresh breeds for 2019, will in the coming days, feature more political parties, such Kowa, Yes Party and the Social Democratic Party, SDP, which is currently studying the MOU circulated by the facilitator and anchor of coalition process; the Director General of Nigeria Intervention, Movement, NIM, Che Olawale Okunniyi, through SDP’s Contacts, Dr. Olu Agunloye and Mr. Donald Duke, SDP Presidential Candidate.”
