Why APGA can't join Merger- Peter Obi

Governor Peter Obi had on Sunday said that joining the merger would result in his party APGA losing its identity, which he said would be contrary to the ideals of its late leader, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, who believed that it was better for the Igbo to be a majority in a minority by sticking to APGA, rather than joining a majority group where they would lose their identity and remain unheard.

Obi, who assumed the role of APGA national leader after the party’s caucus and stakeholders’ meeting at the weekend in Abuja, said the party could not afford to lose its identity and logo in order to be part of the new APC, adding that doing so would lead APGA into extinction.

However, he stated that while the party was not in any merger talks with any group, it would not stop any of its members who intended to join the group, saying it will personal decision.
