2023 Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate, Peter Obi has revealed that he will only accept a merger with his Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) counterpart, Atiku Abubakar if it serves the greater good of Nigeria.

The Labour Party chieftain made the disclosure during an interview with NoireTV at the weekend.

The former Anambra governor stated that an alliance must be focused on improving governance and helping the poor, not just winning elections or for state capture.

Obi said, “I commend Atiku for his statement especially where he said he will support me if it goes to the South East. On the issue of a merger and the coming together of parties, I have always said that as long as any merger or any coming together is to better Nigeria and for governing properly, I am for it. If it is just a merger for election or state capture, I’m not for it. I am not desperate to be president, I am desperate to see Nigeria work, especially for the poor, because we have a lot of potential.

If the merger is to be able to govern Nigeria properly and work for all those things that would make Nigeria become a better place, I am for it.
