Peter Obi Open to PDP-LP Merger.


The presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 presidential election and former governor of Anambra state, Mr. Peter Obi, has signaled he is open to forming a merger with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in a bid to unseat the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2027. Obi, however, gave some conditions that he said must be fulfilled for such a union to see the light of day.

In an interview, the Labour party man said “If the merger is to be able to govern Nigeria properly, unlock all those things that will make Nigeria a better place, I’m for it.

“If it’s just a merger for election or state capture, I’m not for it or part of it, I don’t want to be part of anything like that.”

The businessman also thanked his former running mate and candidate of the PDP, former vice president Atiku Abubakar, for expressing a willingness to get behind his candidature in the next election. I commend him and I’m grateful for his statements, especially where he said he will support me if it (the presidential ticket) goes to the South East.

“I’m not desperate to be president, I’m desperate to see Nigeria work, especially for the poor people because we have a lot of potential,” Obi said.
