People's Redemption Party

2015-01-13 10:00

The People's Redemption Party was a political party in Nigeria. The Second Republic incarnation of the Northern Elements Progressive Union and the Fourth Republican incarnation of a similar namesake, the party was created by the supporters of Mallam Aminu Kano after his withdrawal from the National Party of Nigeria.

The PRP was highly regarded as a progressive left of center political party.

Some well known members of the party included Governors Abubakar Rimi, Balarabe Musa, Dr. Edward Ikem Okeke, and Chinua Achebe — who served briefly as Deputy National President in the early 1980s.

The original party was banned following the Military Coup of 1984 led by General Buhari. In the Fourth Republic, the party with the same name resurfaced under the leadership Abdulkadir Balarabe Musa. It could however not gather the same level of support as its Second Republican namesake.
