Benue PDP Welcomes Landmark Judgment, Calls For Dissolution Of Caretaker Committees

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC) has said that it is not engaged in any merger talks with other political parties.

News About Nigeria reports that this is contained in a statement by Hon. Debo Ologunagba, National Publicity Secretary of the PDP.

In the statement titled “We Are Not in Any Merger Talks with Another Political Party,” which he issued at the party’s headquarters in Abuja on Wednesday, Ologunagba mentioned that the National Working Committee of the PDP has taken a resolute position that formally forecloses any possibility of a merger with any other political party.

Ologunagba said, “The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), after its 587th meeting in Abuja on Tuesday, June 4, 2024, restates for the umpteenth time that the PDP is not engaged in any merger, fusion, or amalgamation talks with any other political party or interest.

“While the PDP, as a truly people’s party, is open and welcoming to all Nigerians, including our former members who left for other parties, we state that our party remains strong and formidable, capable of winning elections in a free, fair, and transparent electoral process in our country.

“The NWC acknowledges the influx of millions of Nigerians into our party in the ongoing Party Membership Drive in all the Electoral Wards across the country; which further confirms that the PDP remains the party of choice for the majority of Nigerians.

“The public, teeming members of our great party, democratic institutions, and, of course, the international community should therefore disregard any report suggesting any form of merger between the PDP and any other political party as such is not in the contemplation of our great party.”
