One of the newly registered political parties in Nigeria, the Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party (ANRP) has said it would rescue the country from the bad dominance of both the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Vanguard reports that the Kogi state chairman of the party, Segun Asaju, on Sunday, April 8, described the ANRP as the Third force Nigeria is waiting for.
Speaking at the state congress of the party held in Lokoja, he said the party was the force being clamoured for by former president, Olusegun Obasanjo.
He said: “No doubt, ANRP is the “Third force” Nigeria has been waiting for and been clamoured by former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
“As 2019 approaches, there will certainly be different coalition to wrestle power from the present occupant. ANRP is best positioned for Nigerians to gravitate towards a new political coalition that will replace the ill-performing All Progressives Congress (APC) and its discredited counterpart, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“It is true that the two major parties is unworthy of leading Nigeria and called for a coalition of fresh minds to rescue the country from the grip of the two behemoths in the next general elections rest solely on our party; which is the better alternative.”
The party leader said the strategy of the ANRP is to first capture many wards as counselors. Asaju said majority of the party flagbearer for all the elective position in 2019 will be youths.
