Alhaji Balarabe Musa, the Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT), People’s Redemption Party (PRP), says the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), are seeking for alliance with political parties ahead of the 2019 elections.
He however stated that his party will not align with any political party for the 2019 general elections, stressing that any party that wants an alignment with a progressive force like PRP, should know exactly what the party stood for.
Balarabe who is a former Governor of Kaduna State, disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Lagos, saying that the major political parties cannot make it alone in 2019.
The BoT Chairman also disclosed that the major political parties were seeking alliances in order to deceive Nigerians ahead of 2019 elections
“No party has approached me to join forces with them, but the issue of realignment is ongoing.
“I have friends who are top members of the two major political parties and the parties know that they can’t make it alone; they are bankrupt.
“So they really want alliances to deceive the people; they are now making approaches.
“Some are consulting directly with even material inducement; in cases where they can’t use material inducement they try to use democratic alliances.
“So I want to warn them that as far as I am concerned, we will not be involved in alliances with any of the group until the group knows exactly what we stand for.
“They must also know the minimum performance requirements for governance in Nigeria,” the elder statesman said.
