Nigeria Advance Party

2015-01-13 10:00
The Nigeria Advance Party is a progressive political party headed by Lagos lawyer Tunji Braithwaite.

The party was the only new political organization allowed to field candidates for the Nigerian elections of 1983. The party comprised of southern Nigerian intellectuals who favor a reformist government.

The party was launched on Oct 13, 1978 in Ibadan. The leader of the party then had a cautious attitude towards the idea of free education, though it later adopted a signpost of free university education and compulsory primary education. It also tried to sell itself as a dedicated new breed organization and an alternative to the old politicians of the first republic.

In December, 1978, three political pressure groups joined the party, they were the Nigeria Tenants and Labour Congress, headed by I.H. Igali, the Nigeria Social Democratic Congress, led by Balali Dauda and the Youth Force Alliance, led by Olayinka Olabiwonu.

However, its registration was rejected two months later based on its lack of sufficient grassroot support in the 19 states of the federation.
