Atiku canvasses merger to oust APC

The 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has called for the merger of opposition political parties.

Atiku, who made the call in a statement by his media adviser, Paul Ibe, on Tuesday, warned against the likelihood of Nigeria slipping into a one-party state.
According to the statement, the former Vice President made the remarks when he hosted the National Executive Committee of the Inter-Party Advisory Council Nigeria.

He said the project of protecting democracy in Nigeria was not about just one man.

“You have come here today to say that we should cooperate in order to promote democracy. But the truth of the matter is that our democracy is fast becoming a one-party system; and, of course, you know that when we have a one-party system, we should just forget about democracy,” he stated.
Atiku, therefore, tasked the leadership of IPAC, led by its National President, Yabagi Sani, on the need for the opposition political parties to come together and create a more formidable front that will salvage Nigeria’s democracy from sliding into a one-party state.
