New political coalition unveils Agbakoba, Ezekwesili, Duke, Utomi, others as members (See List)

In December 2017, former president of the Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Olisa Agbakoba, addressed a press conference in which he announced the formation of a new political coalition, the National Intervention Movement (NIM) started by 90 Nigerians with a mission in the long run “to wrest power from the political elite.”

He said the movement will grow by inspiring and supporting people to start small groups across the country and would accommodate anyone concerned about the failures of both the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

A statement from the NIM described it as a “third force political reality to provide a credible alternative platform for ideal and acceptable political leadership and governance in Nigeria.”

On Friday, NIM announced the composition of its provisional task teams and steering committees. The list comprised of notable names like former World Bank Vice President, Obiageli Ezekwesili, former Cross River governor Donald Duke, former information minister Frank Nweke Jnr, former NLC vice president Issa Aremu, former presidential candidate Pat Utomi, Odia Ofeimun, among others.

According to the statement,

NIM is a purely owned political platform by the mass movement of the people of Nigeria. It does not have founding fathers, owners and money bags investors. Every member Nigerian will contribute his token and widows might to fund and grow it and also fundamentally run it for the purpose of access to equal and unbiased opportunities to contest or run for elective offices in Nigeria under ideal democratic rules, tenets and ideals.

It is not a political party per se, but a mass movement of ideologically compatible and patriotic Nigerians to move against the frustrating governing order statuscuo and operate as one force major entity under a political mission and agenda to always ensure the entrenchement of a new and ideal leadership order in Nigeria.

NIM will work with other splinter political, civil society and professional groups of interest in Nigeria to negotiate for power and elective offices for its members; support them to contest and help to install acceptable governments in every part of Nigeria.

NIM is already becoming a house hold name; it is growing and expanding fast across the six geo political zones in Nigeria and will surely and strategically contribute prominently to the emergence of a new political order in the 2019 elections.

It is obvious Nigerians are earnestly asking for the emergence of the third political order in the present Nigeria.

This is one concern, prominent and patriotic Nigerians are already building for you.
