CUPP Distances Self From New Coalition

The Coalition of United Political Parties (CUPP) has distanced itself from the emergence of a new coalition known as National Consultative Front.

The CUPP in a statement by its spokesman, Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere said it frowned at the inclusion of its name as part of the new coalition when its leaders were not consulted

He said, “While we appreciate that the crass performance of the present administration must have prompted well-meaning Nigerians to begin to meet and consult on how best to reclaim our country from the present precipice where they have dumped her awaiting to tip over, we must state that those associated with CUPP at the meeting attended the meeting in their individual capacity and not representative of the CUPP or under our auspices.”

The CUPP spokesman said it therefore wished to be removed from the list of member groups of the new coalition talk.

He said, “CUPP leadership has never been consulted. Hence it will amount to misrepresentation in bad faith for these leaders to continue to use the same of CUPP

He said those behind the new coalition should instead explore the workability of closing rank with the CUPP to outs the APC in 2023.

According to him, the CUPP has been a formidable opposition, holding the current government to account on behalf of the Nigerian people, saying the opposition can only be victorious in 2023 general elections when there is only one united front.
