Professor Pat Utomi, a political economist, has verified that three candidates for president in the most recent election—Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Peter Obi of the Labour Party, and Rabiu Kwankwaso of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP)—have decided to create a strong party that will unseat the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2027.

Utomi disclosed this in an interview with Channels TV. Utomi is a fervent supporter of Peter Obi in the 2023 presidential contest.

He claimed that after speaking with the three, he decided to create a significant party that would seize control of the government and that Nigerians needed leaders willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for the advancement of their country.

He said, “We need people who sacrifice themselves to build a great country with the possible reward of immortality. When I talked to several of the presidential candidates in the last run about this track, we were travelling.

“Yes, I’ve had conversations with Atiku Abubakar, I’ve had conversations with Engineer Rabiu Kwankwaso, I have had conversations with Peter Gregory Obi, and people like Ralph Okey Nwosu of ADC are some of those that would probably constitute some of the base.

“And I’ve said to them, it’s not about you. It’s about Nigeria, it’s about the ordinary person in this state. It’s about genuinely moving from this business of sharing trickles from oil sales to how we can become one of the most productive economies because our (natural) endowments allow that. Still, our politics has not allowed Nigerian people to produce”.

He, however, said the name of the new party is yet to be unveiled.
