Agbakoba, Duke, Utomi Float Political Group
Former President of the Nigerian Bar Association, Olisa Agbakoba (SAN), a political economist, Professor Pat Utomi and former Cross River State Governor, Donald Duke have formed a political movement.
Agbakoba disclosed this in Abuja early this morning as he unveiled the “National Intervention Movement” a political group.
According to him, the main purpose of NIM is to galvanise Nigerians towards building a national political consensus to rescue the nation from total collapse.
Agbakoba stated that it became necessary to form a group now because it had been observed that the past national conference organized by past leaders were for selfish agenda.
Agbakoba posited that he was part of the 2014 confab organized by former President Goodluck Jonathan but had since realized that it was organized for the ex-president selfish agenda.
Another member of the group, a labour activist, Isa Aremu said that it is the right time all compatriots come together to rescue the country from total collapse.
“There is a need to have leaders who really care about the governed but about their selfish agenda.”
Members of the steering committee of the group include Agbakoba as the leader, Prof. Pat Utomi, Donald Duke, Dr Kemi George, Isa Aremu, Senator Abubakar Gada, Dr Abduljalil Tafawa Balewa and Rabiu Isaiku.
