“Allied political forces and groups converge to reposition the Labour Party (LP) as the people’s alternative platform for rescuing Nigeria ahead of the 2023 general elections,”
As a People’s centred, Pan Nigerian political platform that is positioned to serve the interests of all Nigerians irrespective of their ethnic, religious and social inclinations; in uniting the country, – ahead of the 2023 general elections, the coalition of Prof. Pat Utomi’s led NCFront, Falana led TPAM and others has teamed up with the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC & the Trade Union Congress, TUC, to adopt Labour Party (LP) as the THIRD FORCE GRAND COALITION MEGA PARTY (TFGCMP).
Not giving rooms for lapses the group has since commenced the fusion of its structures of over twenty million members and supporters nationwide into the Labour Party.
The team which also includes Prof. Attahiru Jega, Utomi, Dansadau and others have programmed to lead an electoral coalition of seven (7) allied parties for A SINGLE PRESIDENTIAL TICKET 2023.
A press statement on Sunday signed by Ms Bilikis Bello, communications executive, of the national secretariat of the National Consultative Front, (NCFront) stated that allied parties should adopt the single line of candidates across all 2023 elections.
The statement noted that after about fifteen months of painstaking engagements with like-minded allied political parties, the National Consultative Front (NCFront) the umbrella body of the third force movement and political alternatives to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Nigeria, announced that it HAS FINALLY ADOPTED THE LABOUR PARTY (LP) as the mega party for third force stakeholders and allies for the 2023 elections.
“This historic adoption of the Labour Party was made possible by the new rapprochement between THE LEADERSHIP OF THE LABOUR MOVEMENT AND THE HIERARCHY OF THE LABOUR PARTY (LP), emergent solidarity jointly spearheaded by President of the Nigeria Labour Congress, NLC, COMRADE AYUBA WABBA and the Trade Union Congress, TUC President, COMRADE QUADRI OLALEYE both of whom have since personally revalidated their membership of the Labour Party by formally registering with the party last week.
“The FORMAL ENDORSEMENT OF THE LABOUR PARTY (LP) by the ‘3rd Force’ Movement is also coming on the heels of the success of the recent meetings and activities of the separate political commissions of the NLC and the TUC with their Allies like the FEMI FALANA LED THE POLITICAL ALTERNATIVE MOVEMENT (TPAM) in the Civil society, towards repositioning the Labour Party (LP) as the people’s alternative platform for rescuing Nigeria ahead of the 2023 general elections,” the statement noted.
It added, “With the adoption of the Labour Party (LP) as our 3rd Force Mega Party penultimate week, the NCFront has since commenced the fusion of its structures of over twenty million (20,000,000) members and supporters nationwide into the Labour Party.
Consequently, our teeming members all over Nigeria and in Diaspora have been directed to register immediately as members of the Labour Party (LP) at all designated registration centres, both online and physically at the Ward Levels, to be able to take part in the ongoing electoral programmes of the Party for the 2023 elections.
Therefore, with the novel synergy between the Labour Party (LP) and the NCFront, the convening platform of the 3rd Force Movement, which is also today the largest political mass movement in the country, Nigerians can be rest assured that the glorious future we all desire for our dear country, is now achievable by 2023, especially with the brewing implosion hovering over the ruling cartel of APC and PDP, which will soon burst into unpreventable disintegration after their party primaries.
Taking inspiration from the consummation of NCFront/Labour Party (LP) novel fusion, Leaders of the ‘3rd Force’ Movement across party lines, including PROF ATTAHIRU JEGA of the People’s Redemption Party, PRP, PROF PAT UTOMI, the Labour Party (LP) and SENATOR SAIDU DANSADAU of the National Rescue Movement, NRM, among others have been mandated by the Leadership of the 3rd Force Movement and like-minded allied political Parties to drive a Mega Electoral Alliance of the 3rd Force Movement towards the adoption of a single line of candidates AMONG SEVEN (7) ALLIED PARTIES involved in the ‘3rd Force’ alliance.
