The Alliance for New Nigeria (ANN), one of the newly registered political parties, has inaugurated its board of trustees, (BoT) ahead of the 2019 general election.
Daura Abdul-Nasser, interim national secretary of the party, in a statement said the composition and inauguration of board came after the inaugural meeting of the BoT, held at the party secretariat.
According to the statement, the BoT recommended that interim national executive council (NEC) of the party be dissolved and a caretaker committee set up to lead the party to its national convention.
The statement added that the date for the national convention would be announced “in a few days”.
Abdul-Naseer said Nkata Chuku emerged chairman of the board, while Aiseosa Osaghae is the secretary.
In his remarks, Jay Samuels, interim national chairman of the party, said the inauguration of the BoT was an indication that the party was moving in the right direction.
He said the party is now positioned to move forward and prepare for the 2019 general election.
“From being a group, we are now a formidable political force primed towards challenging for the topmost offices in the land and live up to our creed of retiring and replacing the old political gladiators,” Samuels said.
He added that the national working committee of the party would look into the recommendation of the newly constituted BoT concerning the dissolution of the interim NEC of the party, and put in place a caretaker committee that will lead the party to its convention.
