The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, National Working Committee, NWC, has made clarifications.
It stated hat it is not engaged in any merger, fusion or amalgamation talks with any other political party.
This comes amid talks by PDP’s 2023 presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar of forming a coalition with his Labour Party counterpart, Peter Obi and other political parties.
But, Yunusa Tanko, the spokesman of the defunct Obi-Datti presidential campaign council, had said Obi is not interested in any merger that is aimed at seeking political powers.
However, PDP expressed readiness to welcome back to its fold, members who left for other political parties.
The PDP NWC stated this after its 587th meeting in Abuja on Tuesday.
A statement by PDP’s spokesman, Debo Ologunagba, reads: “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 on-going Party Membership Drive in all the Electoral Wards across the country; which further confirms that the PDP remains the Party of choice for majority of Nigerians.

“The public, teeming members of our great Party, Democracy 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.”
