30 of the 62 Political Parties in Nigeria Are Owned and Sponsored by the PDP- Nwanyanwu
Nwanyanwu said this at a public lecture he delivered at Abuja this weekend, with the title, Transformation of Nigerian Politics: The Labour Party Perspective.
He said: “Out of the existing 62 political parties in Nigeria, 30 of them are owned by PDP out of which just nine have functional office in Abuja while the rest of the parties have their offices in their briefcases.
He further stated that Nigeria’s electoral system that emboldens multi-party system was a disservice to the nation and under such arrangement; electoral fraud can hardly be ever checked.
“The best political system for Nigeria is a two party system. Such arrangement will make it difficult for rigging because it is just two parties, there will be no need for anybody to carry ballot boxes because there won’t be such opportunity.
“Touts will not have jobs and the electoral tribunal will be useless because a clear winner will emerge just as was the case in 1992 general elections between the Social Democratic Party, SDP and National Republican Convention, NRC. The issue of merger or alliance will not arise because it is just two of them and they have different ideologies.”
