Bauchi — The All Nigeria People's Party, ANPP, has said that it will merge with the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN, and the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, to effect a change in the affairs of the country so as to meet the yearnings and aspirations of the people.
The North East chapter of the party made this known when its members met to strategise on the merger plans even as the party lampooned the administration of President GoodLuck Jonathan for failing to consolidate on the gains of democracy in the country.
Chairman of the Board of Trustees, BoT, of the ANPP and former governor of Kano State, Mallam Ibrahim Shekarau, made this known before the meeting.
Shekarau, however, said that the three parties would come together to form a strong opposition to dislodge the ruling People's Democratic Party, PDP, following its failure to address insecurity, poverty, unemployment and corruption in the country.
Shekarau said,"already, three separate high powered committees have been vested with the responsibility of carrying out the task of merging with the other political parties in the country that are in the opposition. The merger moves is irrespective of political, religious and ethnic differences".
