A popular human rights lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), and other notable Nigerians have set motion in place to form a mega movement ahead of the 2023 general elections.

Naija News reports that the movement named “The Peoples Alternative Political Movement”, is set to challenge the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming election.

Promoters of the movement, Wednesday, met in Abuja and named Prof. Toye Olorod as co-chairman of the committee and Jaye Gaskiya as Secretary.

In a communique issued at the end of the meeting and ‘endorsed’ by about 30 different groups, the promoters said, “The new movement will build a new country based on justice, equity and protection of the dignity of mankind irrespective of ethnicity, faith or creed.

“We shall make Nigeria great again and put the country back on her status as the giant of Africa’, the promoters said as part of their mission statement.”
