It said it is a signal to a new dawn for democracy in Nigeria.
The President of the congress, Shehu Sani said the marriage is a necessary convergence to rescue democracy from total collapse.
According to him, President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration has suffocated the democratic process, adding that the merger will ventilate the political atmosphere and free the country from the 15 years of PDP political brigandage and thuggery.
He said the merger will set Nigeria on the path to genuine political freedom and economic prosperity, adding that the merger will strengthen the cause of democracy and liberate the people from the boring and enslaving rule of the PDP.
“Nigeria under the PDP is a cancerous experience that has sickened our people and progressively killed the spirit of nationhood. The merger will give more beef and nerve to the opposition and help propel the forces of change to power. It will end the draught of purposeful leadership and good governance that has eluded Nigeria for 14years,” he said.
