Labour Party is not interested in merging with anybody… especially PDP

by Kolapo Olapoju

Labour Party, has denied the circling reports that it may be considering the possibility of merging with the Peoples Democratic Party and other parties, such as the All Progressive Grand Alliance, Hope Party, and KOWA Party.

It had been rumoured that the parties were planning to come together to form a strong mega opposition party that will ultimately challenge the All Progressives Congress.

However, the National Secretary of Labour Party, Kayode Ajulo, over the weekend, released a statement saying that the rumours are “false and diversionary”.

He said: “The rumoured talks of a merger between the Labour Party and other parties such as the PDP is a figment of the fevered imagination of some mischievous peoples. Such an issue has not been raised within the party exco at all, and nor has anyone or, any party had any agreement on the issue with us.”

“It is highly irresponsible for anyone to drag the esteemed name of Labour Party into rumours of an impending merger.  If at all, anyone has entered into any such talks, he is doing it strictly on his own, not in the name of Labour Party.”

“Our goal is not just to seek power or relevance; we are committed to alleviating the sufferings of all Nigerians.

“We are therefore prepared to work with anyone who will put the Nigerian people first, and seek to bring succour to the homes of Nigerians across the nation.

“We will cooperate with any government, group and individual that shows with its policies and actions that it truly seeks to bring relief to Nigerians, that is also our desire, so it is only reasonable to cooperate with such groups, if any.”
