 Ahead of the 2023 general elections, some prominent Nigerians have established a third force, Rescue Nigeria Project, RNP. The founders of RNP say they launched the political platform to give Nigerians an alternative to the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, and the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP. 


Vanguard newspaper reports that founders of RNP include former governor of Kwara state; Ahmed Abdulfatai, former presidential candidate, Professor Pat Utomi, former minister of education; Professor Tunde Adeniran and former governor of Cross River state, Donald Duke. 

Others include former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission; Professor Attahiru Jega, former Kogi state deputy governor; Yomi Awoniyi, Senator Lee Maeba, Dr. Usman Bugaje, Ambassador Nkoyo Toyo, Yomi Awoniyi, Dr. Rose Idi Danladi, among others. 

Meanwhile, Hon. Wale Oshun, leader of the Afenifere Renewal Group (ARG) has stated that the prospect of a Third Force as an alternative to the two leading political parties will not work.
