Atiku calls for merger of opposition parties to challenge APC
Written by Joey Shekwonuzhibo on November 15, 2023
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar believes the merger of Nigeria’s opposition parties will help in forming a stronger front against the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.
Atiku, who was the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate in the 2023 presidential election, made this known in Abuja when he hosted the national executive committee of the Inter-Party Advisory Council, IPAC.
He also criticized INEC for conducting what he calls poor elections, including discrepancies in voter numbers.
He therefore asked the National Assembly to prioritise constitutional and electoral reforms, in particular electronic voting reforms, to ensure transparent elections and protect Nigeria’s democracy.
