Labour Party’s Peter Obi Open to Merger with PDP for Nigeria’s Progress

In a recent interview, Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party in the 2023 elections, expressed his openness to a potential merger between his party and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Obi’s stance is clear: he would consider such a merger if it serves the greater good of Nigeria and contributes to effective governance.

Obi emphasized that his primary concern is not personal ambition or political maneuvering. Instead, he is driven by a genuine desire to see Nigeria thrive, especially for the benefit of its less privileged citizens. He stated, “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.”

The former Anambra State governor outlined his conditions for supporting a merger. If the goal is to govern Nigeria effectively and unlock its vast potential, he is fully on board. However, he firmly rejects any merger solely for electoral victory or state capture. “If it’s just a merger for election,” Obi asserted, “I’m not for it or part of it. I don’t want to be part of anything like that.”

Unity and cooperation, according to Obi, are essential for building a better Nigeria. Whether at the party level or individually, he believes that coming together to address the country’s challenges is crucial. “We must come together,” he said, “to be able to build a better Nigeria.”

Obi’s willingness to consider a merger with the PDP reflects his commitment to progress and effective governance. As Nigeria continues to navigate its political landscape, his pragmatic approach highlights the importance of putting the nation’s interests first.
