Ahead of 2019 general elections, 15
registered political parties have formed a
new political group, under the aegis of
Coalition for a New Nigeria (CNN) with the
aim of fielding a consensus candidate in the
next presidential election to unseat the
ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The 15 political parties include, Labour Party
(LP), Alliance for Democracy (LD), Democratic
Peoples Congress (DPC), Action Alliance (AA),
Progressives Peoples Alliance (PPA), Young
Democratic Party (YDP) Democratic
Alternative (DA) and National Conscience
Party (NCP). Others are People Democratic
Change (PDC), United Democratic Party (UDP)
and National Action Congress (NAC).
Addressing newsmen in Abuja, during the
official public presentation of the new
group yesterday, the national chairman of
LP, who also doubles as the coalition’s
chairman, Abdulkadir Abdulsalam, said all
the parties involved will work together to
ensure its common candidate emerges
victorious at the next election.
“After several consultations on the political
and economic situation of the country, we,
the following political parties to be known
and addressed as Coalition for a New
Nigeria have decided to chat a positive
course for a new Nigeria,” he said.
Another member of the coalition and the
national chairman of the DPC, Olusegun
Peters, said the intention of the coalition is
to field a consensus candidate for the next
presidential election.
“This coalition has been working and
strategizing for three months to see how
we can run a successful government in
Nigeria to effect the real change in the
country. We are working on how to present
a credible presidential candidate for the
2019 general election. So, we are not
working in collaboration with either the APC
or the PDP, but this coalition will present a
credible presidential candidate for Nigerians
in the next election,” he said.
On whether the coalition would later
metamorphose into a merger, Abdulsalam
said: “It will remain a coalition and we are
not contemplating a merger, each party
remains independent and autonomous, but
we are to come together to support a new
government in 2019 at the centre.”
The coalition’s leader also said the group is
committed to pursuing economic, political
and internal restructuring of Nigeria,
empowerment of youths, women and
persons with disability.
He added that the body would strive to
respect the rule of law and other democratic
institutions so as to build a nation of great
dreams “where equity and justice shall be
the guiding principle.”
