Second Republic member of the House of Representatives, Dr. Junaid Mohammed, yesterday, described the alleged moves by some persons to form another mega party as a clear indication that there is no sincerity on the part of the political class.
There are strong indications that some prominent Nigerian politicians will come together and form a mega opposition party before the end of March 2017.
According to reports, the heavyweights in talks over this plan, include former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, APC’s national leader Asiwaju Bola Tinubu and the Ahmed Makarfi faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Tinubu in a reaction declared that he will not abandon the party.
According to the northern scribe, President Muhammadu Buhari deceived the North using the toga of Islam.
He described the moves towards the formation of a mega party as meaningless, given the inconsistency of the political class.
He said: “I believe before we get to 2019, the people of Nigeria will decide what to do. What I can see right now is that the PDP is dead and APC is on its way to collapse. I am not surprised about the development in PDP because its convocation from day one was not that of a political party and for APC, it is a party in transition and on its way to collapse.
“Some of us thought APC will make a difference, but President Buhari has shown he is a nepotic leader who deceived the North that he has the interest of the North at heart, being a Muslim but in real sense, he has not done anything for the North. In fact, the North has been backward under him.”
