Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in the 2023 elections, has revealed the only thing that can make him support a merger between his political party and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).



Recently, there have been speculations that the Labour Party, Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and other opposition parties may team up ahead of the 2027 election.

On May 17, Atiku Abubakar, PDP presidential candidate in the 2023 election, said he would support Obi if the parties merge and decide to give the presidential ticket to the south-east region. However, Obi says he is not interested in the merger of parties merely for the purpose of winning the election.

“On the issue of merger… coming together of parties, I always say as long as any merger or coming together is for a better Nigeria, a new Nigeria, for governing properly, I’m for it,” Obi said to NoireTV-GlobalBlackTV,

“If it is just a merger for elections or state capture, I’m not part of it. I’m not desperate to be president. I’m desperate to see Nigeria work, especially for the poor people.

“We have a lot of potential. So if the merger is to be able to govern Nigeria properly or unlock all these things that will make Nigeria a better place, I’m for it.

“It might be at the party or individual level. But we must come together to build a better Nigeria.”
