Kingsley Moghalu, a presidential aspirant under the Young Progressives Party (YPP), has said that Nigerians do not need the alliance of “same old career politicians” but a generational shift in governance.
Moghalu said this while reacting to the memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC) and 37 other political parties.
The main objective of the memorandum is to unseat President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019.
Reacting, Moghalu in a statement on Tuesday said that even though, the development was a legitimate move, the real question remains: “What does our country need now?”
He said Nigeria needs a paradigm shift in governance and “a regrouping of the booted out PDP and members of the failed APC will not achieve that.”
“Going by the current state of the country, things are falling apart and the centre cannot hold.
“The shifting allegiances of the same old faces and the same old career politicians will mean the same old problems for Nigeria.
“Our long-suffering masses now need something new, something different, and something bold if we have truly learnt the lessons of 2015.
“Remember: another coalition brought the APC into the presidency.
“The PDP-led MoU and the “disastrous” performance of the APC, the path is now open for a real transformative third force and generational shift.
“The politicians have always won. It is time for the people to win in 2019!”
