Proposed Merger Against Tinubu a Waste of Time, Says Ex-APGA Presidential Aspirant Okoye

George Okoye, a former presidential aspirant under the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), has dismissed the proposed merger of opposition parties aimed at challenging President Bola Tinubu as a futile effort. Okoye, who previously served in the Anambra State House of Assembly, believes that Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is performing well, contrary to some opinions.

Okoye urged the leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to focus on resolving its internal issues rather than pursuing alliances. “The leadership of the party is complacent; they are just rigmarolling, looking for direction. A mega party cannot work in Nigeria today. The only thing the PDP needs now is to resolve its leadership challenges,” he said.

He emphasized the importance of credible leadership within the PDP, suggesting that with strong leadership, the party could provide a viable alternative to the current government. Okoye also noted, “If the government does the right thing, commend it, and criticize it when it does the wrong thing. We have a President today in Nigeria and I don’t think Bola Ahmed Tinubu is bad. I am impressed by his performance so far, but the PDP can provide a better alternative.”

Okoye’s comments highlight his belief that internal reform within the PDP is crucial for its future success, rather than seeking external mergers.
