2019: Duke, Ezekwesili, Agbakoba, Utomi In New Alliance, To Battle APC, PDP by nwakibie3(m): 12:01pm On Jan 18
Nigeria Intervention Movement (NIM), which has former Cross River State governor, Donald Duke, former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Charles Soludo, Senior Advocate of Nigeria, Olisa Agbakoba, Tafawa Balewa, and Prof. Pat Utomi, as members, has vowed to rescue Nigeria in 2019.

The group said it would be providing an alternative to the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Former Education minister, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili is also a member of the group, including former Information minister, Frank Nweke Jnr, Col. Abubakar Umar (retd), Ayo Obe, Rabiu Ishyaku Rabiu, former presidential adviser, Akin Osuntokun.

A statement from the NIM secretariat in Abuja, yesterday, described the group as a pro-democracy movement and pressure group of like-minded Nigerians who are committed to changing the political order, which has failed to fashion a Nigeria that works for all.

“NIM is concerned that the political elite, since independence, and particularly, since the exit of the military from visible power in 1999, has proved that it is ill-equipped and unprepared for the challenge of transforming our nation from its under-developed status to one that is prosperous and can create a veritable environment for the realisation of its citizens’ potentials and well-being.

“It is clear that the political elite, as currently represented by the two dominant political parties, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressive Congress (APC), among others, have failed Nigerians, for lack of clear Ideology and principle on how to run the country.

“Concerned that left to their schemes and antics, this class of entrenched leaders will lead Nigeria into a state of indescribable human misery, characterised by death, hunger, disease, illiteracy and manipulation.

“Therefore, the NIM, being unable to continue to stand aloof, has decided to create a third political force, a platform to mobilise all citizens of goodwill and conscience towards engendering a new political system and culture in Nigeria, capable of bringing about the desired opportunities for all to actualise their dreams and potentialities; a nation where no man or group is oppressed.”

The statement noted that to drive NIM’s vision are: Dr. Olisa Agbakoba (Co-Chair); Dr. Jhalil Tafawa Balewa (Co-Chair); Professor Pat Utomi (Deputy Chair); Rabiu Ishyaku Rabiu (Deputy Chair); Comrade Isah Aremu (Deputy Chair) and Chief Akin Osuntokun (Deputy Chair).

Other officers include Hajia Aisha Aliyu (Women Leader), Mr Dayo Israel (Youth Leader), Dr Osagie Obayuwana (Legal Adviser), Hajia Shetu Alfa Ibrahim (Treasurer), Mallam Naseer Kura (Publicity Secretary), Col. Abubakar Umar Dangiwa (Ex -Officio), Dr Oby Ezekwesili (Ex -Officio) and Mrs Ayo Obe (Ex-Officio), Sir Olawale Okunniyi (National Secretary/Director General).

Chairmen of standing committees are: Mr Donald Duke (Finance Committee); Prof Jibrin Ibrahim (Ideology Commission); Comrade Najeem Usman (Political Commission); Mallam Tanko Yinusa (Mobilisation); Mr Wale Ajani (Students & Youth); Mr Taiwo Akinola (Diaspora Commission); Mr Tony Uranta (Strategy & Engagement) and Mallam Shittu Kabir (Contact/Logistics).

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a step.
They have started with that step and will eventually become powerful enough to wrestle with the useless apc and PDP parties.

And as long as Donald Duke and other sensible Nigerians are there, they have my vote.

No more to illiterate leaders.
No more to useless corrupt leaders

I am not a member of any political party but this sounds inviting. It's high time Nigerians start thinking beyond present charade of political heavyweights polluting our space within APC and PDP.

Donald Duke will make a good president and I am willing to support him with my resources if he's given the chance.

its a nice combination, the question is can they take over power come 2019?if there can't there should not divide votes,cos that will give Buhari an edge to triumph strongly in the north. The northners we know from history vote based on religious and ethnic affiliations.

This is real deal, I think more well meaning Nigerians should join the movement, like BRF should join them but my reservations is this, I am not so impressed as per Donald Duke nor against, still trying to check him out. Then the northern block votes, how would they be able to break it up cos that would hold ace as per winning the federal election. Fighting the organized political system ain't gonna be easy in this poo hole of a country, but anything is possible

apc will be very happy now but this group is DOA

it takes more than Twitter rant to win the grassroots

they should focus their evangelism in the north if they're able to win people there it's a done deal.
this is a plot to scatter pdp (though not a member anymore) bloc votes in the south
