THE plan by the opposition parties to form a grand alliance to challenge the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, which is certain to present President Muhammadu Buhari as its standard-bearer in the 2019 election, is finally taking shape as the parties have almost concluded the terms of the alliance.

Sunday Tribune learnt at the weekend that the leading opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Social Democratic Party, SDP, Labour Party, African Democratic Congress, ADC, New PDP, nPDP, and about 34 other parties and groups are close to signing a memorandum of understanding, MoU, on the alliance.

The four-member committee working on the MoU, it was gathered, was expected to perfect the document earlier in the week but could not finish it. This, it was said, was to give the legacy aligning parties enough room to digest the contents of the MoU and come up with suggestions before a final draft is produced and signed.

It was learnt that the opposition leaders are mindful of time and are determined to conclude work on the document and sign it within weeks.

According to a source within the coalition, Nigerians would begin to witness serious activities in the coalition.

“We are hoping to conclude all plans in the next three weeks. I can assure you that Nigerians would begin to see serious activities in the next few days,” he stated.

Talks were said to have reached a critical stage among the leaders of the opposition parties, who were said had agreed on how best to go about the alliance in a way that will make the 2019 presidential election a walkover for the opposition.

Sources told Sunday Tribune that the PDP, nPDP group and other aggrieved groups within the APC had shown strong commitment towards the alliance which they said was necessary in the interest of the country.

  4. An undeniable fact, what a leader must do.
    Firsrly, Let me start by say that defeating PMB in the coming election is certain, because he has failed the country in all aspect. The YOUTHS of the country are not happy with Buhari’s administration following several denial of one’s right, disobedience to the rule of law, embarrassment and intimidation from the security personnel (SARS) and the police at large, rise in the dollar exchange, inflation and the WORST of it all, the KILLINGS and spilling of the innocents.
    Take it one after the other, starting from the denial of people’s right to the killings of innocent citizens, and give a reason why one should get up on the election day, move to the polling station and vote Buhari. No reason! Not when one remembers how the security personnel intimidate him in his own home country. Meanwhile, Buhari made security of his greatest priorities when yearning for power, but have failed woefully.
    Now, one can not freely walk around in his own home due to these criminals called security who don’t even care to know what they are out for. They kill without remorse, and easily imposed criminality on their victims. This is a great danger for the youths, and Nigeria leaders are never thoughtful of the saying, “Youths aRe the leaders of tomorrow”. Sometimes, it seems to be that the leaders, especially the president and the governors don’t want the existence of the youths in the country. An incomprehensible situation. But how would the country grow?
    To enhance security in the country, the power sector should first be but in order,,,, install security light in the streets and ensure steady power supply. There are job varieties to be generated from having steady power supply. The government should not even pretend that they don’t know this. No such criminals who rob in the dark would like to operate in the presence of security light or street lights as called by many.
    The security agents should be cautioned to mind their jobs, that’s to secure the citizens and not to harass them. Whatsover it is, they should know that we are living in the century where anybody can be a journalist so far he or she has a smart phone. Real time images and videos are found here and there with security men raping and killing innocent people which they the security always say have been doctored or photoshopped. But whether doctored or photoshopped, there’s a big fact behind it. Smoke they say, never go without fire.
