2019: 22 Political Parties Meet
About 22 political parties on Friday met behind closed door in Abuja to strategise for the forthcoming coming general elections in 2019.
The political parties, under the platform of Committee of Concerned Political Parties (CCPP) also confirmed that about six committees were set up during the meeting and expected to commence investigation, submit reports and make their recommendations on some boiling national issues before the group will be unveiled to the public.
Some of the political parties represented at the meeting include: Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), Sustainable National Party (SNP), New Nigeria People Party (NNPP), Social Democratic Party (SDP), Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN), Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN) and National People’s Congress (NPC), among others.
In a statement read to the newsmen shortly after the closed door meeting, the chairman of the forum Dr. Onwubuya Abraham Breakforth, said another committee was put in place to articulate and aggregate the overall objective of the group, and plan for the unveiling in the coming weeks.
“It was further resolved that various options open to the group in relation to the forthcoming 2019 general elections would be explored in the best interest of the country,” he said.
Other sub-committees raised by the CCPP include: committee on restructuring Nigeria and inter-governmental affairs, committee on national security and integration, committee on planning and finance, committee on contact and mobilisation and committee of research and documentation.
