A while ago, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, stated that so far, the agency had received registrations from 60 new political parties.
Of these, one particular party is of huge interest to the ruling All Progressives Congress.
The new Mega party is known as the Action Democratic Party (ADP).
The group said she has applied for registration with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
It is uncertain if this new party has any relationship with the alliance being contemplated by a faction of PDP and APC.
The Senator Ahmed Makarfi led faction of the PDP currently controls 11 states in the country.
The meeting of the proposed ADP was chaired by a prominent politician from the North-central zone, Mr. Yagbagi Sani.
The new party comprises former members of the PDP, APC and the Social Democratic Party (SDP).
The Party’s logo is a hand holding a book.
According to Sani, many politicians are backing them. However, they don’t want their names mentioned yet.
“Ladies and gentlemen, I have no doubt in my mind that we are all politically conscious citizens.
“We are all desirous of a better country for ourselves and our people.
“The political space in Nigeria at the moment can best be described as chaotic; this is for want of a better adjective.
“Wherever one looks, there is an overwhelming sense of despondency among the people.
“All over the news, Nigerians are yearning for a new political direction and hope in the present political manifestations.
“It is either they are battling a leadership crisis, a credibility crisis, or both.
“This is in addition to pervasive issues of mutual distrust and loyalty.”
The party has also zoned its offices to all respective geo-political zones in the country.
A source privy to the development and asking not to be named said former vice President Atiku, IBB, and Adamu Ciroma are backing the new party.
Others include Peter Odili, Governor Wike, Ayodele Fayose, retired General Ihejirika, and of course Bola Tinubu.
