The de-registered Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) may transform into a national movement or merge with political parties of the same ideology, its National Chairman, Alhaji Balarabe Musa, said.
Musa said in Abuja on Thursday that the plan, which would be realised within the provision of the 1999 Constitution, became necessary in order to effect a change of baton at the federal level in 2015.
He told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that PRP was also consulting with many of the de-registered political parties that were still willing to be registered.
According to him, the constitution allows that 3 months after de-registration of political parties, the parties can apply for registration as new party.
He said that in aligning with such option, PRP was also considering a little modification in its name.
"We are ready for alliance with any party interested in creating an understanding and form a unified block to promote transparent, free and fair elections."
He said:"Mind you, we are not doing this for the first time, PRP did it in 1984 when it was de-registered by the military.
"In 2002, we came up with the same name PRP and we were registered, but this time with modification in the name.
"There is nothing to stop us doing the same thing again, it can be done with little modification like Native-PRP or register as PRP with socialist in bracket."
Balarabe said that all members of PRP were consulting on the options with the hope of meeting very soon to arrive at a decision that would fashion the way out for the party.
NAN recalls that PRP was one of the 28 political parties de-registered by INEC early in December 2012. NAN
