The Labor Alliance (AA) leadership distanced itself from the party’s alleged merger with the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The party also completely denied the allegations of supporting the APC presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu in the 2023 elections.
In a statement, Dr. Adekunle Rafai Omwagi, the party’s national president, also denied any connection between the party and the GPC, stressing that the party has no intention of working with any other party in any way in the country’s upcoming elections.
Hajiya Amina Kelechi Lamido, who claimed to be the area coordinator of the Presidential Council of Major Hamza Al-Mustafa (rtd) in the Northwest Region, said the AA campaign committee, leaders and members of the party had merged with the presidential campaign team of Tinubu, the GPC’s presidential candidate.
But Omogi, the national president of the Latin American federation, called the development a mere rumour, insisting such an arrangement exists only in the minds of those who spread rumours.
He made it clear that none of the party leaders left for any other political party, saying that the contestants under the party’s platform through its leadership are the only real contenders for the party in next year’s elections.
