A group of 30 prominent Nigerians including activists, academics, and other professionals have formed a new political movement called ‘National Consultative Front (NCF)’ ahead of the 2023 general elections

In a statement issued by NCF on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, the group said its aim is to provide a credible alternative political class and leadership for Nigeria as a result of the “failures” of past leaders of the country.

The movement highlighted its objectives to include mobilising Nigerians for a popular mass action towards political and constitutional reforms that would benefit the country and its citizens.

The group said it will embark on mass mobilisation of Nigerians to drive reforms to engender a new people-oriented constitution that will birth a new Nigeria.
