ADC, others to form new party ahead of 2027 elections

The Africa Democratic Congress is planning a merger with other political parties in the country with a view to creating a formidable front to dislodge the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, from power in 2027.

The National Chairman of the ADC, Chief Ralphs Nwosu, made the disclosure at a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday.

Nwosu said the APC had failed Nigerians and rated the government low on all fronts.

He added that the opposition would not sit idle and watch the downward spiral of the nation.

“The state of the nation is nothing to talk about. It is saddening and arouses morbid fear.

“Therefore, instead of wasting our time engaging in futile debates with those in government, we should continue to strategise on ways to develop a new political system and come together to create a collaborative, value-driven ecosystem that prioritises our people and country.

“We certainly need a new beginning. Pointing fingers of recrimination is not what transformational leaders do,” he said, adding that 22 political parties had joined hands with the ADC to build a new mega party.

“We have resolved to work with all political leaders that appreciate the need for coming together for a new Nigeria.

We discriminate against none; our commitment is a new Nigeria that will lead our dear continent out of its present abyss,” he said.

He pointed out that the APC, which dislodged the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from power in 2015, is a product of a merger of opposition forces.

Following the notable impact of major opposition parties like the Peoples Democratic Party, Labour Party, and the New Nigeria People’s Party in the last election, observers contend that a united opposition before the election could have ousted the APC.

Consequently, Prof. Pat Utomi, and more recently, the ADC, had contemplated the formation of a mega party to dislodge the APC in 2027.
