The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says a strong merger of political parties is the only chance to take power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2027.
The spokesman of the PDP in Ogun State Akinloye Bankole made this claim in a chat with newsmen at the weekend.
In his words, “The emerging reality in the political space is that to successfully rescue power from the APC, I also agree that what we should be thinking of is a comprehensive merger of all stakeholders across the board. Everybody must come together and form a great alliance to face the APC headlong.
“That is why our presidential candidate is playing a frontline role in this regard, and he is not doing it for a selfish reason but for the ultimate purpose of making sure that we rescue Nigeria from the claws of the APC and make sure that we reposition our state and country for future greatness.
“Therefore, I want to join him and others in appealing to everyone to lay aside our differences so that we can collectively work together to rescue Nigeria from the APC.
“Whether we like it or not, Nigerians are not just hungry; they are angry.”
According to him, the APC has no solution to the issues the country is currently battling with.
“Everybody in this country today knows that Nigeria’s economy is in shambles and needs to be rescued. Unfortunately, it does not appear as if the APC has any immediate response to stop the economic issues and position the country for improvement.”
