“The major people who are in 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.

"They have decided to form something very new and they are of the opinion that they should hand over the party to younger elements who are less corrupt and who can be able to fight for the interest of the people,” he said.

He said that apart from the top shots of the PDP who founded the party, some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have also indicated interest in working with PMP.

But he refused to mention names of the PDP and APC members who have interest in the party, saying they do not want to make their intentions public yet.
