The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has announced its willingness to engage in alliances with various political parties, including the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Labour Party (LP), and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). The party asserted that such collaborations would be considered if they served the national interest.
Addressing a press conference in response to the call by former Vice President Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for opposition parties to unite against the APC, the national chairman of NNPP, Abba Kawu Ali, clarified that the party’s openness to alliances extended beyond opposition parties. He emphasized that the NNPP was prepared to engage in discussions with any political party, including the ruling APC.
“As we stated earlier, while we fully embrace this initiative and applaud it, as a matter of necessity, the NNPP is looking at this issue from a much larger perspective and considering all factors inherent in it,” Ali stated in reference to Atiku Abubakar’s call.
He further declared, “Our party, without any iota of doubt, is open to collaboration, alliance, and any arrangement with any of or all the political parties, including PDP, Labour Party, and APC, so long as such collaboration, alliance, or arrangement will be in the utmost interest of the Nigerian people and the protection and consolidation of Nigeria’s democracy.”
