A political organization, Protest To
Power Collective [P2PC] has made public its manifesto titled "From Protest To
Power, Street To Service.
The group which played a prominent
role in the January 2012 protest on Monday, January 21, 2013 announced the
emergence of a new political platform, Democratic Party For Socialist
The group explaining the rational
for its decision to seek political power explained that “We have reached the
collective understanding that the time has come for us to move from merely
venting our anger in various forms of protests, to converting that anger and
energy into the liberating task of building an alternative and radical mass
based political platform”.
The group which stated that its
mission s to give the people of Nigeria an alternative party that truly
represents their dreams and aspiration also acknowledged that there exist other
groups with similar agenda.
“We commend and identify with every
such genuine initiative that is oriented on the social emancipation of
Nigerians, radical social transformation of the national economy and polity; as
well as the genuine National Liberation of Nigeria”, stated the Protest to
The group which warned that people
should be wary of both the ruling party, PDP which is trying to reorganize and
other self seeking ruling class parties seeking alliances further stated that
there is need for similar platforms seeking to establish alternate political
parties to come together and form a united and strong front.
“We are convinced that the only way
this bungling, historically inept and congenitally corrupt ruling class, can be
dislodged from power as the first step in the task of National Liberation and
social emancipation; is for all of these genuine alternative party initiatives
to come together and work out a joint political action platform in some form of
a UNITED MOVEMENT TYPE PARTY, which alone can stand the chance of annihilating
and dislodging the treasury looting class from power”, stated P2PC.
The group has suggested a timeline
of second quarter of the year for all groups to come together, harmonise their manifestos, seek merger and announce a united party dedicated to the interest
of the people of Nigeria.
