Peter Obi interested in merger to end poverty, not seeking powers – LP to Atiku, others

Yunusa Tanko, the spokesman of the defunct Obi-Datti presidential campaign council, has said Peter Obi, the Labour Party 2023 presidential candidate, would only agree to a merger that will bring Nigeria out of poverty.

Tanko said the former Anambra governor is not interested in any merger that is aimed at seeking political powers.

Recall that Obi had met with his Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, counterpart, Atiku Abubakar, former Senate President Bukola Saraki and Sule Lamido.

The meeting with the duo had sparked speculations of a possible merger, which Atiku recently clamoured for.

Reacting to the speculations, Tanko said Obi would only partner with those who have similar values.

Featuring on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Monday, Tanko said: “His Excellency, Peter GregoryObi is not interested in a merger that is only for the interest of seeking power.

“He is interested in a merger that will bring Nigerians out of the poverty level, bringing the Nigerian people to a comfortable state of health care.

“Making sure Nigerians have potable drinking water; making sure the problem of power supply is being solved.

“So, therefore, he is interested strongly in a merger that is driven by ideology and a programme. But if it’s only for the purpose of power, he is not interested.”
