A group of seven opposition political parties on Wednesday, December 7, united under a newly formed coalition aiming to bolster democracy in the nation.
The coalition comprises the Peoples Democratic Party, African Democratic Congress, Social Democratic Party, Peoples Allied Movement, New Nigeria Peoples Party, Young Progressives Party, and Zenith Labour Party.
He emphasised the urgency for opposition parties to unite to strengthen democracy and prevent such an outcome.
“We are worried about the level of instability the country is going through. If you look at recent developments in Zamfara, Nasarawa, Kano, and Plateau states, it is very clear that the judiciary must exercise extreme caution with some of its decisions.
The SDP chairman, however, said that the coalition is not for a merger or against the Inter-Party Advisory Council.
Speaking on behalf of the acting national chairman, Umar Damagum, the acting National Secretary of the PDP, Setonji Koshoedo, emphasized that the newly formed coalition will serve as a formidable force in opposition to the current government.
