Popular activist, Aisha Yesufu has hinted of a new political party ahead of the 2023 presidential election.
According to Aisha, the leading political parties, the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, would not field competent candidates to lead the country.
The Edo-born activist noted that although there are people with competence, character and capacity in the two leading parties, power brokers will never allow them succeed.
“APC and PDP have people with competence, character and capacity to lead Nigeria right but they will never be allowed by the power brokers who want those they can control and not those that can do the right thing.
“It is in our own interest to have a party that will encourage competence,” she said.
National leader of the APC, Bola Ahmed Tinubu is believed to be among the top contenders for the party’s ticket although he is yet to make a public declaration.
