The BoT chairman disclosed that the major political parties were seeking alliances in order to deceive Nigerians ahead of 2019 elections
“No party has approached me to join forces with them, but the issue of realignment is ongoing. I have friends who are top members of the two major political parties and the parties know that they can’t make it alone; they are bankrupt.
“So they really want alliances to deceive the people; they are now making approaches. Some are consulting directly with even material inducement; in cases where they can’t use material inducement they try to use democratic alliances.
“So I want to warn them that as far as I am concerned, we will not be involved in alliances with any of the group until the group knows exactly what we stand for.
“They must also know the minimum performance requirements for governance in Nigeria,” the elder statesman said.
