At the National Executive Council/National retreat held by the promoters of the yet-to- be registered party, the National Coordinator of PMP, Perry Opara, told the delegates that the mission of the new political platform is to provide a very focused and patriotic body deviod of negative traits of impunity and confusion

Opara, who is a close associate of the estranged PDP chieftain and former Presidential aide, Alhaji Ali Ahmed Gulak, said  promoters of the party are former members of the PDP who disenchanted by the high level of corruption, high level of impunity and high-handedness in the PDP.

He stated that apart from the bigwigs from PDP, there are others from even the ruling party, All Progressives Congress (APC) desirous of pitching their tent with the new party.

He, however, refused to names the PDP and APC members floating the party, noting that no one among them has given permission to make it open.
