Our party not part of any coalition plan -NNPP
The National Working Committee of the New Nigeria People’s Party has denied the Coalition of Concerned Political Parties membership.
The NNPP disclosed this in a statement by its acting national chairman, Mr Abba Ali, in Abuja.
“The attention of the leadership of the party has been drawn to newspaper reports of the formation of a coalition by NNPP and some political parties and wishes to state emphatically that there is nothing of such.
“The reports which came out on Friday December 8, 2023, indicated that our great party, the NNPP, PDP and some other political parties have formed a coalition.
“The NNPP is using this medium to reiterate that the report in all its material substance is false and is very far from the truth,” he noted.
Ali said that since the 2023 general elections, no party official has engaged with any political party, individually or collectively, to discuss the issue of forming a coalition now or soon.
He urged Nigerians and the international community to disregard any news of the NNPP going into coalition with any political party or parties.
The PUNCH reported that a group of seven opposition political parties on Wednesday formed a new coalition in a bid to strengthen democracy in the country.
The coalition comprised the Peoples Democratic Party, African Democratic Congress, Social Democratic Party, Peoples Allied Movement, New Nigeria Peoples Party, Young Progressives Party, and Zenith Labour Party.
