A Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain and former member, Atiku Abubakar 2023 Presidential Campaign Council, Dr Adetokunbo Pearse, says the party does not need any merger ahead of the 2027 general elections.
Pearse, who spoke on Friday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos, ruled out the possibility of any merger between the PDP and other political parties.
He noted that the PDP is not dead but only needed to close ranks and put its house in order to win elections.
PDP cannot be running away. Let us forget merger. Are you talking about PDP merging with some of these political parties which do not have offices?
“We should look inward, reposition ourselves and improve the party, that is what we need to do.
“PDP is not finished if we do right thing. President Tinubu will be gone in 2027 if we do the right thing,” he said.
