Some of the parties present at the occasion are the All Blending Party, All Grassroots Alliance, Alliance for New Nigeria, Abundant Nigeria Renewal Party, Coalition for Change, Freedom and Justice Party, Grassroots Development Party of Nigeria, Justice Must Prevail Party, Legacy Party of Nigeria, Mass Action Joint Alliance, Modern Democratic Party, National Interest Party, National Rescue Mission and New Progressive Mission.
Others are the New Progressive Movement, Nigeria Democratic Congress Party, People’s Alliance for National Development and Liberty, People’s Trust, Providence People’s Congress, Re-Build Nigeria Party, Restoration Party of Nigeria, Socialist Party of Nigeria and Sustainable National Party.
In a report by SIGNAL, Olateru-Olagbegi said he was very delighted that the party has been registered after a long and rigorous process of registration.
“Today, as we received our Certificate of Registration, we are convinced more than ever before that the new Nigeria of our dreams is indeed possible. MDP stands today as a political party founded on the principles of innovation and ideas. It is a party for all Nigerians who are tired of business as usual. It is a party for the young and youthful at heart.
“It is a party sponsored and owned solely by the citizens of Nigeria who want to see a difference in the politics and governance of this nation. MDP is home to Nigerians who are tired of the status quo and want to be part of something fresh, something new, something untainted and something different.
“We know that the journey ahead of us will be long. This is not a party registered for the 2019 presidential elections. We are here for the long haul and wish to call on all true patriots of our fatherland to get involved as we embark on this journey towards building Nigeria’s first and truly Modern Democratic Party”, he said.
