Just In: Labour Party Refutes Merger Talks With PDP
The Labour Party (LP), has dismissed claims that the party is in merger talks with any other political party, saying that the report is misleading and aimed at embarassing the party.
The Labour Party (LP), has dismissed news circulating that it is in merger talks with any political party, especially the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
This was disclosed in a statement earlier today by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Obiora Ifoh, who described the reports that the party was in talks of a merger as a news item misinterpreted to embarrass the Labour Party.
The statement reads:

“Kindly disregard the sensational news making the round which suggests that Labour Party is working out a merger arrangement with any other political party. It is purely a news item twisted and sensationalised by a section of the media to embarrass the Labour Party.
A news organisation called for a reaction as regards to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s proposal for opposition political parties to work together to fight against one party system in Nigeria being planned by the APC.
In my reaction, I said that it was only a proposal and every Nigerian should be interested in making democracy work in Nigeria and that what we have presently is autocracy. There was no where in the response that the purpoted merger between the LP and PDP was mentioned.
The Labour Party has just concluded the 2023 general election episode and a post mortem is yet to hold, therefore the way forward for the party has not been discussed. When we do, Nigerians will be properly informed.
I therefore urge Nigerians to disregard such and many other twisted and sensational stories purported to emanate from the Labour Party. The party has its official platform used to disseminate its information.”
Recall that Dockaysworld reported that the presidential candidate of the PDP in the last election, Atiku Abubakar had suggested a merger between opposition parties in order to take back power from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
