Forum of Political Parties (FPP) is an umbrella body of both Registered and Deregistered political parties in Lagos State. Sixty-five members of the FPP are deregistered political parties, but with all their full political structures on the ground across all the 20 Local Government Areas of Lagos State.
One of the leading roles of political parties is to checkmate political governance. And over the years, FPP has been doing that, ensuring that Lagos State and Nigerians get the best in leadership by blazing the trail in electing the right and people-centric political leadership across the board.
As major stakeholders in the democratic governance in our dear country Nigeria, the 2023 elections present a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Nigerians to truly get it right.
That informed our decisions for over six months to periodically evaluate the presidential candidates of all political parties in the race for the forthcoming presidential elections. We have studied their manifestos.
We have taken accounts of their public and private lives. After a series of stakeholders and Board of Trustees meetings, we became unwaveringly convinced that only one person among all of the presidential candidates has the basic requisites and intimidating pedigree to consolidate Nigeria’s fledging democracy and deepen development; unite the country and redefine democracy as government of the people, by the people and for the people. That one man is Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
We are here today to endorse him for the top job and to ensure that all the party leadership, members, and supporters of the 65 Deregistered political parties here present at today’s event work to ensure victory for Asiwaju Tinubu at the presidential polls.
Idowu Oguntoyinbo, the Lagos State Party Chairman of the Progressives Peoples Alliance (PPA) and a former PPA Deputy Governorship Candidate, stated that only Tinubu has what it takes to resurrect Nigeria.
I can proudly say that today has marked a new thing as the 65 Deregistered Political Parties who are active members Forum of Political Parties in Lagos State have unanimously endorsed the most competent and experienced presidential candidate for the forthcoming presidential elections, in the person of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Though we are from different political parties, but for 65 political parties to unanimously endorse one man today is absolutely phenomenal and a testament to the fact that Nigeria is on a threshold of making an inspiring history come February 25, 2023, he said.
