NCF sets up shadow government in Abuja

The National Consultative Front, promoters of the ‘Third Force Movement’ in Nigeria, on Wednesday, set up a shadow government.

Members of the group said they took the step to save Nigeria from misrule and incompetence.

The spokesperson for the group, Yunusa Tanko, said this in a statement titled, ‘NCFront Leaders of Conscience Of The “Third Force” Movement In Nigeria Set Up Shadow Government To Save Nigeria From Misrule And Incompetence, in Abuja.’

He said the leaders of conscience were compelled to take action to halt Nigeria’s further slide.

Tanko said, “The Third Force Movement initiated by National Consultative Front, is again compelled to intervene in Nigeria’s growing misrule and national confusion by setting up a formidable national shadow government to provide alternative interventions and solutions to problems of national governance in the various sectors of Nigeria’s political and economic endeavours.

“Consequently, we wish to use this medium to call on all well-meaning Nigerians across party lines and in the broad civil society to embrace and support this historic shadow cabinet initiated by the National Consultative Front.
