The concerned Nigerians under the aegis of National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) have described the All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as “two evils” that Nigerians should avoid in the 2019 general election.

Punch Nigeria reports that the group, which has former minister of defence, Theophilus Danjuma, Professor Joseph Otubu, Joshua Dogonyaro, Archbishop Magnus Atilade, Kate Okpareke and others as its members, made this proclamation on the APC and the opposition PDP.

The chairman of the group, Solomon Asemota, in a statement released with the scribe of the Christian Socialist Movement of Nigeria (CSMN), Bosun Emmanuel, called on Nigerians to start seeking for new names in the politics of Nigeria.

According to him, “Nigerians must begin to clamour for new candidates and new political parties. It is not too late to mobilise and dismiss the current political class that devalued naira by over 1,600 % from 1999 to 2018 and, at the same period, increased the price of fuel by 625 %.

“Jointly, the PDP and the APC impoverished and pauperised Nigerians and turned the country into the poverty capital of the world.

“It makes sense to reject the two frontline parties, the APC and the PDP, for lack of credible performance.”
