The All Progressive Congress (APC) has stated emphatically that the planned merger arrangement of the Labour Party (LP) with the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar and his counterpart in the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso is not a threat to the ruling party.
APC boasted that President Bola Tinubu will have no problem beating the trio again convincingly if the motive was to stop him from winning the 2027 presidential poll.
The Director of Publicity for the ruling party, Bala Ibrahim, stated this in an interview with The Punch.
Ibrahim dismissed the planned merger with wave of hand, saying it will be an exercise in futility
“With my poor arithmetic, let me say if you can beat them individually, I don’t see any difficulty you will have beating them collectively.
“Whether they (Atiku, Obi, Kwankwaso) merged or not, they will still remain below the ladder of the ruling party.” Bala boasted.
