There are serious plans in the offing to effect a merger between the Labour Party and the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP).
This was made known by the Spokesman of the National Consultative Forum, Yinusa Tanko in an interview on Arise TV.
He said there are plans to merge the Labour Party and New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP) to defeat the APC and PDP in 2023, though he cannot give specific details.
According to Yinusa Tanko, merging the two parties is an idea they have seen on the ground, and they believe that the Labour Party’s candidate, Peter Obi, who is already grounded in the Southern part of the country, needs to work with people like Kwankwaso, a strong person in the North.
Yinusa Tanko said that both Peter Obi and Kwankwaso, have exhibited character, resilience, and determination while working closely with the disadvantaged.
He urged Nigerians to support Peter Obi and Kwankwaso if the talk about merging the two political parties comes through.
