Ahead of 2019 presidential election, Nigeria’s major opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and 41 other political parties have moved to come together to form a coalition aimed at producing a formidable candidate.
The objective of the alliance is to field a consensus candidate to be presented by one of the parties. Against this backdrop, and desirous to defeat President Muhammadu Buhari, the parties had been engaged in marathon meetings on the viability of the agenda.
The latest forum was well attended by representatives of the various parties last Wednesday at the Abuja residence of a former Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chief Tom Ikimi. The source further said another meeting was scheduled for Friday at 5 pm.
