Twenty-two political parties, under the umbrella of Committee of Concerned Political Parties (CCPP) have constituted six committees for the 2019 general election.
Interim Chairman of CCPP, Dr Onwubuya Breakforth, the National Chairman of Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), told newsmen in Abuja that the group was concerned about boiling national issues, including killings by herdsmen and restructuring.
The sub-committees, according to Breakforth, are on restructuring Nigeria and inter-governmental affairs; national security and integration, and planning and finance.
Others are on contact and mobilisation, and on research and documentation.
He added that the committees would commence action and make recommendations on before the unveiling of the group in a few weeks.
“The CCPP also resolved to jointly discuss and proffer solutions to key national issues threatening the peace and unity of our dear country.
“It was further resolved that various options open to the group in relation to the 2019 general elections would be explored in the best interest of the country,” he said.
Breakforth said that the group had agreed to form a three-member steering committee to pilot its affairs.
He added that additional sub-committees were formed to articulate overall objectives for the group and other on topical national issues.
Breakforth listed some of the parties represented at the meeting as Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), Sustainable National Party (SNP), New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Social Democratic Party (SDP).
Others are Allied Congress Party of Nigeria (ACPN) and Unity Party of Nigeria (UPN), Grassroots Development Party of Nigeria (GDPN) and National People’s Congress (NPC).
