The Labour Party (LP) has stated that it has no plans to merge with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to challenge the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2027 general elections.

VerseNews reports that the LP’s spokesman, Obiora Ifoh in a statement on Thursday, said that the party had just concluded the 2023 presidential election, and discussions on the way forward had not taken place yet.

The statement comes in response to a proposal by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, who was the PDP flag bearer in the February poll, that opposition parties merge to defeat the ruling APC in the next presidential election.

Atiku, on Tuesday, had expressed concerns that Nigeria was moving towards a “one-party dictatorship” state and called on other opposition parties to come together to defeat the ruling APC.

Reacting in a statement on Thursday, the LP said Atiku’s call “was only a proposal and every Nigerian should be interested in making democracy work in Nigeria and that what we have presently is an autocracy”.

“There was no where in the response that the purported merger between LP and PDP was mentioned.” Ifoh emphasised.

Also, the ruling APC slammed Atiku, over the proposal, saying the ex-VP and his party failed at the polls since 2015 and have failed to offer credible opposition to Nigerians.
