Former Kaduna lawmaker and socio-political commentator, Shehu Sani has maintained that the reported merger move of opposition parties is a welcome development in Nigeria.
He stated the opposition parties seemed to be retracing their steps after losing against the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, in the February 25 presidential election.
The controversial Senator made this remark via his Twitter handle on Monday morning.
Shehu Sani said, “The speculation that the opposition are planning to unite is good for democracy; now they are studying geography after the earthquake.”
The APC came into existence on 6 February 2013 after Nigeria’s three largest opposition parties – the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), and the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) formed a coalition along with a breakaway faction of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) and the new Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP).
