The FCT Labour Party chairman, Mr Adejobi Peter, on Wednesday, said only purposeful leadership could ensure Nigeria’s progress, not the planned merger of opposition parties.
He made the remark in an interview monitored by our correspondent in Abuja.
Peter, reacting to the endorsement of merger talks by 10 governors who won elections on the platforms of opposition parties, said the corporate existence of Nigeria was greater than aggregate interests of a group of individuals brought together by the inordinate ambition of wresting power.
According to Peter, Labour Party was not part of the ongoing merger talks, because similar exercises had never yielded any good result in the past.
Information Nigeria recalls that on Wednesday, four opposition parties, the ACN, CPC, APGA and ANPP came together to form the All Progressives Congress with the sole aim of rescuing the country from the choke-hold of the ruling PDP.
