A former member of the House of Representatives, Lawal Garba, has saluted the current merger talks between the ACN and the CPC saying it is the best thing to happen on the Nigerian political landscape in recent times.
Speaking in Kaduna recently, Garba expressed hope that the alliance will work out fine since the two parties have similar ideologies.
"I am of the opinion that the ACN/CPC merger is the best thing that could have happened to the political landscape of the country," he said.
Garba, a founding member of the CPC, also saluted the progressive ideology of both the ACN and CPC, saying, "The two political parties are progressive in nature, and have been making consistent efforts to reach an understanding in the last five years."
Garba who once represented Daura, Sandamu and Maiadua constituencies of Katsina State in the House of Representatives, called upon all members of the CPC nationwide to demonstrate their support for the merger, stressing that 'the party has assembled highly resourceful people to represent it in the effort."
