After a brief period of acting as a non-partisan group, the National Consultative Front (NCFront) has now decided what it wants to look like: a political party.

Its co-chairperson Prof Pat Utomi  will soon meet Prof. Attahiru Jega and Olisa Agbakoba (SAN)-led National Political Coalition on Electoral Reforms initiated on October 1— for a merger.

The NCFront made the disclosure on Friday while announcing plans to launch a credible “alternative mega ideological party by November”.

A statement by Tanko Yunusa, Head of Public Affairs, declared that the aim is to “depose the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP)”.

According to him, NCFront members have resolved to play politics, and it is joining existing political parties with similar ideological values.

Utomi will meet Jega, a former Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Chairman, and Agbakoba, to discuss how to get the civil society, labour movement, like-minded individuals, political leaders, and groups on board.

According to him, Nigerians are tired of the present exploitative misrule of the country by both these parties and have therefore rejected them ahead of the 2023 elections.

“It has become a historical duty for leaders of conscience under the umbrella of the NCFront given the rescue mission of the Front to provide a formidable credible alternative for our frustrated electorates and citizens ahead of the 2023 elections.

“This is in order to save Nigeria from a looming anarchy that may arise from hostilities against the 2023 elections based on the perception that it holds no value and genuine promise for the survival of Nigerians and Nigeria”, the statement added.
