Coalition of opposition parties not about 2027 – National Secretary of the NNPP opens the door

The National Secretary of the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP), Oladipupo Olayokun, has debunked reports of a merger of opposition parties against the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2027 general elections.

In an interview with Punch, the NNPP writer said his party has never discussed the merger of political parties.

According to him, the coalition that his party and others in the opposition discussed about a month ago was to take a stand against an alleged grand plan by the APC to regain through the courts some of the states they lost at the ballot box to grab.

He added that there may be a new coalition against APC and President Bola Tinubu at some other time before the 2027 elections, but for now, reports of a merger between the NNPP and other opposition parties are untrue.

In his words: “Every time we turn on the television or radio, we hear people talking about the coming of the NNPP, because today I am the National Secretary of the NNPP, and I cannot remember a single day when we went to a meeting where we discussed the merger of political parties.

“Yes, about a month ago or something about that there were stories in the newspapers that about six, seven political parties came together to form a coalition; but it's not about 2027.

“Immediately after the tribunal's verdict and the Court of Appeal's judgment, the opposition parties discovered that there was a grand plan by the ruling party to take over some of the states they had lost at the ballot box through the to get back in court. So we decided to get together.

“That was the only coalition we formed. It was not a coalition against the ruling party president before 2027, as they say. Maybe that will come later, but as of today that was the only thing that brought the political parties together, and we thank God that reason prevailed.”
