Two formidable parties to emerge in 2017 – Obasanjo

Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has predicted the alignment and realignment of politicians before the end of 2017 to pave way for the establishment of two strong political parties in the country.


He observed that the present two leading parties – All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) – are not vibrant enough to perform the role of ruling and opposition parties respectively.

The ex- President spoke while hosting the delegation of Ondo state Chapter of the Accord Party led by its Chairman of Board of Trustees (BoT), Rev. Adebayo Adeniyi, at his presidential hilltop residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Obasanjo, who observed that Accord Party gubernatorial candidate in Ondo state, Mr. Ola Amuda, has a bright political future, urged the seasoned technocrat and former Special Assistant to late Olusegun Agagu to strive hard and make positive impact during the November 26 poll in the state.

A statement issued by the Ola Amuda Campaign Organisation said the former President charged the candidate to hold his supporters and party members firmly for future consolidation of political parties.

The BoT chairman informed Obasanjo that the Accord Party has been waxing stronger since its formation.



  1. Their headache…come 2019 I will “jejely” collect my five thousand (I hopefully pray it is increased to 10,000 by that time) at the polling center because new or old political parties- they are all rebranded thieves!

  2. Two formidable parties that will revert to the status quo of massive public fund looting, I suppose
    The parties that will condone the fund meant for national development to be shared among greedy politicians
    This old man, Obasabjo, that has lost idea should go and consentrate of his farm
