2023 Presidential Election: The 3rd Force is not yet ready

Nigerian pro-democracy activist, Comrade Deji Adeyanju has declared the 3rd force in Nigeria's political system unready to contest against the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the main opposition party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 presidential election.

In a series of tweets the activist shared on Wednesday evening, 1st January 2019, the comrade insisted that only PDP and APC have the political strictures to contest for the presidential seat in Nigeria.

This stance, according to his series of tweets, emanated from a call he received from an unnamed person who urged him to contest for the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.

He wrote: "Spent 30 minutes on the phone with someone trying to convince me to run for President in 2023. Throughout the duration of the call, I was laughing in my heart. In Nigeria today, there are only 2 political parties with structures
Young people must stop this popularity contest thing. It won’t take anybody anywhere. We are not in a race of who will be more to popular. The only way to get rid of these old crooks is to do politics the way it is done globally.

Even in America -to be president; you need firm political structure and an enormous bank of funds. You don’t just wake up and say you want to be president. That’s not how it works. All young people/progressives who are tired of the old crooks must come together to form a movement, not a political party. Since everyone who join politics always does so with an interest, this movement can not be built around any individual or an ambition. It has to be about ideology.

That is the only way to get the buy-in of everyone; if not in 2023, we will see another joke episode in the name of 3rd Force and it will not lead anywhere meaningful. After putting in place a movement, then it can be transformed into a political party.

The party must be properly built from grassroots so it can have a nationwide structure. The place of money cannot be overemphasized and a mechanism must be put in place to raise funds to stop the big election spenders -APC and PDP.

This is the only gospel truth. Anyone telling you otherwise is only interested in a popularity contest. I will continue to speak the truth even though the truth earns you more enemies than friends."
