The leadership of the African Action Congress (AAC) and the Abdulmajid Daudu-led faction of the People’s Redemption Party (PRP) have declared that they will be forming a political alliance as the 2023 general election draws nearer.
Newsbreak.ng reports that the PRP factional National Chairman Daudu disclosed this during the North-East zonal meeting of the party, on Friday.
According to him, the party and the AAC were joining forces to give Nigerians an alternative ahead of 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.
Also, the AAC in a statement on Friday, confirming the move, expressed excitement, saying it was a plus for the party’s presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore.
“The AAC welcomes with great excitement the announcement of support of the PRP for our presidential candidate in the forthcoming elections, Omoyele Sowore.
“The PRP, the oldest party in Nigeria has declared support for the AAC in the forthcoming general election as alliance talks between both radical socialist parties reached a climax,” the statement signed by the AAC National Publicity Secretary, Femi Adeyeye, said.
Adeyeye said further alliance talks were underway.
