Olawepo-Hashim who is a chieftain of the All Progressive Congress on Sunday made the suggestion in a statement in Abuja o Sunday
The former presidential candidate of Peoples Trust in the 2019 general election said, “Regardless of who or what party wins the 2023 presidential election, Nigeria must have in place a broad-based, inclusive, national unity government, made up of essentially patriotic citizens to help construct a stable, secure, peaceful and united Nigeria that inspires hope where no section of the country will be left behind.”
The government, he also advised, must “secure the nation and bring immediate relief to our suffering people whose welfare have been battered due to the un-abating multi-faceted social and economic crises.”
According to him, the formation of the GNU becomes necessary “since none of the existing political parties has the capacity to win in more than three geographical zones of the country.”
He maintained that the GNU must be made up of credible Nigerians to unite the country and lay a new foundation for peace and progress.
