The All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed the recent statement by Prof. Pat Utomi suggesting a possible merger or collaboration between the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the Labour Party (LP), and the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) ahead of the 2027 elections.

Utomi, an LP chieftain, has advocated for opposition parties to merge, reiterating the call recently on national television.

In a statement by Felix Morka, the National Publicity Secretary of the APC, the ruling party said Prof. Utomi’s remarks lacked seriousness.

Morka referred to Utomi as a “serial promoter of mega parties that never materialize” and cited a previous attempt in 2021 to launch a people-centred ideological mega party under the National Consultative Front (NCFront), which did not progress beyond news headlines.

The statement questioned the credibility of Prof. Utomi’s proposed collaboration, suggesting that his involvement might not transform the political parties he deemed “decadent and anti-people” into instruments of political and economic liberty for Nigerians.

The APC termed Utomi’s stance as an “unmitigated delusion of grandeur.”

The statement seen by Dockaysworld read: “As a serial promoter of mega parties that never materialize, Prof. Pat Utomi’s statement cannot be taken that seriously.

“In 2021, Prof Utomi and his collaborators disturbed the airwaves with plans to launch a people-centred ideological mega party under the auspices of the National Consultative Front (NCFront) to dislodge the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). That plan did not go past the news headlines.

“Now in 2024, Prof. Utomi is touting a possible merger or collaboration between the Labour Party (LP), New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) and the PDP, vastly the political parties, according to him, that are bereft of any ideological orientation or “did not manage to create an alignment with the Nigerian People to improve the quality of their lives.”

“One can only infer that Prof. Utomi may be positing that his personal involvement in the proposed alliance will transmogrify the same parties he has adjudged to be decadent and anti-people into bastions of political and economic liberty for Nigerians. That is an unmitigated delusion of grandeur.”
