ANPP re-affirms merger plans

17 September 2012, 14:03

Abuja - The National Secretary,  All Nigeria People’s Party (ANPP) Mr  Tijani Tumsah, on Monday restated the party’s resolve to merge with Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) and Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) by 2015.

Tumsah gave  this indication in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Port Harcourt.

He said the proposed merger was imperative to rescue the country from the ``doldrums of political and economic backwardness''.

The scribe  stressed the need for ``a  compelling force of vibrant political parties to deliver the people''.

He said that ANPP was ever willing to merge with any political party for the political freedom of the country in 2015.

‘’Nigeria requires urgent rescue which we are ready to offer even in concert with other political parties.

‘’Must everybody die first before change is effected, no, the change we need must be made available for the prosperity of our beloved nation,’’ he said.

Tumsah  said that the merger would bring about a desired change in Nigeria.

‘’We are still talking with ACN and CPC, and it is our belief that Nigerians will benefit a lot from the merger.

‘’ANPP is interested in the well-being of our citizens; we will support any move to bring food on Nigerians' tables."

He said that it was not individual ideologies that promoted corruption in government but political parties’ ideology,adding that  was the cause of poverty in the nation.    

‘’There is a great difference in welfare of the people in states being ruled by PDP and others not being ruled by it.

‘’By 2015, we would want to show Nigerians that we can deliver the dividends of democracy."
