The 2023 presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, has expressed openness to a potential merger between the PDP and the Labour Party as the nation gears up for the 2027 general elections.
It was gathered that the former vice president, in a revealing interview with BBC Hausa Service, Atiku, indicated that such a merger is a possibility if it aligns with the party’s strategic objectives.

“The discussions of merging are in line with our goals to strengthen our democracy and ensure the nation’s best interest. Yes, a merger is very much possible if it serves our common goals,” Atiku stated, addressing the potential for collaboration with Labour Party’s Peter Obi and other opposition entities.
