A leading member of the Steering Committee of the National Consultative Front (NCF), Dr Adewole Adebayo, says with the support of Nigerians, his party hopes to take over power in 2023.

The renowned legal practitioner, who made this known in an interview on Channel TV’s ‘Politics Today’, promised that the NCF will offer a clear alternative and viable solutions to get Nigeria out of the woods.

Regarded as the ‘Third Force’, the NCF was formed as an alternative to the two major political parties, the All Progressives Congress (APC) and People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Styling itself as a citizens-led mass political movement and claiming to have initiated the ‘rescue agenda’ in July 2020, the NCF is already gathering momentum ahead of the next general elections.

But unlike the current administration which admitted to be unaware of the state of the nation, Dr Adebayo said the NCF has a clear blueprint.

“What we need to do is get the Nigerian people to stop equating the current government’s hopelessness with the hopelessness of the entire country,” he said.

“Nigeria cannot be unlucky in that only Ministers appointed by President Buhari are the wisest for Nigerians. If we had any doubts about their wisdom before, their six years in power have proven that they are not the best we can get.

”So, what are we to do? Instead of engaging in politics or exploiting their misfortunes, we say let us set up what they should be doing and begin proposing solutions to the country’s problems.

“We have seen the hopelessness on the street. We said we have a right to come together under the constitution. We have freedom of association and freedom of thoughts and then we have experience.

“If the Nigerian people approve, we hope to take power in 2023. Ideally, you should have a policy idea before entering government.

“You may recall that when President Buhari took office, his party admitted that they had no idea things were this bad. They had no idea what the problem was, and we don’t want to fall into that trap.

“What we’re doing is planning ahead of time by devising viable solutions to the country’s current problems”

According to the founder of Kaftan Television, “for the time being, NCF is focusing solely on governance rather than politics”.

He added that “While everyone is worried and concerned about politics in 2023, telling those who are travelling between Lagos and Abuja or from Kaduna to Abuja who are being killed or kidnapped on a daily basis, or those who are dying of communicable diseases, or those who are hungry, or those who have to survive the inefficiency of this government as industries collapsing because we are mismanaging our foreign exchange, that you are focusing on 2023 demonstrates insensitivity and ugliness.

”What we’re attempting to say here is that we need to be alive before 2023.

“And this government appears to be suffering from a serious case of insularity. So, if you don’t come up with ideas, toss them around in your head, and get involved in them, we’re going to be in big trouble.

“As a result, many of the things we do as a shadow cabinet would be to propose solutions to problems for which they claim there are none”.
