Makarfi Faction Holds Merger Talks With Political Parties


The Ahmed Makarfi-faction of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), says it is holding merger talks with 15 political parties.

The faction also expressed hopes that it would be able to resolve the leadership crisis ahead of the 2019 general elections.

Speaking at the Northern Leaders’ meeting in Abuja, the head of the faction’s Reconciliation Committee, Professor Jerry Gana, advocated a two-party system in Nigeria.

The professor believes that a one-party system would destroy the nation’s democracy.
