(By Chris K. Amadi) -Ahead of the 2019 general elections in Nigeria, there are indications that a political party made up of politicians from the leading political parties in Nigeria might emerge soon to provide a rallying point for all those who are uncomfortable with the statusquo in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Notable Outcome’s findings showed that the Yorubas, who are strong believers in restructuring and true federalism might be parting ways with President Muhammadu Buhari, who had repeatedly turned his back against demands for restructuring of Nigeria and true federalism.
Meanwhile, with the recent killings in Benue state and other numerous unresolved killings with impunity by Fulani herdsmen in some states of the country, coupled with pronounced nepotism in appointments that characterise Buhari’s administration, without regards for the feelings and aspirations of other sections of the country, Notable Outcome gathered that most stakeholders are concerned that another four years of Buhari presidency might be a disaster.
The aggrieved politicians in the APC, we learnt are determined to stop Buhari’s attempt at securing a second term ticket, and where that fails because of other vested interests in the party, we gathered that there are indications that those who are already talking across party lines would move to formalise their arrangements and position themselves to take over power in 2019.
This move, it was learnt is being given impetus by alleged dissatisfaction of the north with the performance of Buhari, as well as the resolve of some stakeholders to see that power shifts from the north west to another zone in the north where competent hands who can provide credible leadership at the highest level in Nigeria are eager to run for the presidency in 2019.
While it is natural to wonder how all this can be possible in the very short time left before party primaries, it appears there is a consensus among politicians and other statesmen that Buhari has failed to meet the legitimate expectations of the citizens, hence the urgent need to have a more acceptable leader who will restore the confidence of Nigerians in government.
