The Africa Democratic Congress (ADC) is planning to merge with other political parties in the country in order to create a strong front to remove the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), from power in 2027.

Chief Ralphs Nwosu, the National Chairman of the ADC, revealed this during a press conference in Abuja on Wednesday.

Nwosu criticized the APC for failing Nigerians and giving the government low ratings in all areas.

He also stated that the opposition will not just stand by and watch the country’s decline.

“The state of the nation is nothing to talk about. It is saddening and arouses morbid fear.

“Therefore, instead of wasting our time engaging in futile debates with those in government, we should continue to strategise on ways to develop a new political system and come together to create a collaborative, value-driven ecosystem that prioritises our people and country.

“We certainly need a new beginning. Pointing fingers of recrimination is not what transformational leaders do,” he said, adding that 22 political parties had joined hands with the ADC to build a new mega party.

“We have resolved to work with all political leaders that appreciate the need for coming together for a new Nigeria.

We discriminate against none; our commitment is a new Nigeria that will lead our dear continent out of its present abyss,” he said.

He mentioned that the APC, which removed the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, from power in 2015, was created through a merger of opposition forces.

After seeing the significant impact of major opposition parties like the Peoples Democratic Party, Labour Party, and the New Nigeria People’s Party in the last election, observers believe that a united opposition before the election could have defeated the APC.

As a result, Prof. Pat Utomi, and more recently, the ADC, have considered forming a large party to remove the APC in 2027.
