Two political parties have started alliance negotiations, Ejesgist.ng reports.
As the general election of 2023 approaches, the leadership of the African Action Congress (AAC) and the Abdulmajid Daudu-led section of the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) have indicated that they will be forging a political alliance.
Ejesgist.ng reports that the PRP factional National Chairman Daudu made this announcement on Friday during the party’s North-East zonal conference.
He claimed that the party and the AAC were collaborating to provide Nigerians with an option before the elections.
He said for them to wrestle power from the ruling All Progressives Congress, there was a need to form an alliance with a party like the AAC.
He noted that both parties had expressed willingness to make a formal agreement on the alliance.
“Only the AAC and the PRP distinguished themselves from other political parties. Under this government, the economy of the country as well as security has deteriorated. We have to bring back sanity in the land,” he said.
