LP not in merger with any political party -Publicity Secretary

Nigerians have been urged to disregard the media report that the Labour Party (LP) is working out a merger arrangement with another political party.

National Publicity Secretary of the Labour Party, Mr Obiora Ifoh said in a statement on Thursday in Abuja that the news making the round is farther from truth.

Ifoh stressed that the report was purely a news item twisted and sensationalised by a section of the media to embarrass the party.

“A news organisation called for a reaction as regards to Alhaji Atiku Abubakar’s proposal for opposition political parties to work together to fight against one party system in Nigeria.

”In my reaction, I said that it was only a proposal and every Nigerian should be interested in making democracy work and that what we have presently is an autocracy.

”There was nowhere in the response that the purported merger between LP and PDP was mentioned,” he said.

The LP publicity scribe said the party had just concluded the 2023 general election episode and a post mortem was yet to hold.

He said that the way forward for the party had not been discussed.

“When we do, Nigerians will be properly informed,” he said.

Ifoh urged Nigerians to disregard such news and many other twisted and sensational stories purported to emanate from the Labour Party.

He said the party has its official platform used to disseminate its information.
