The Action Congress (AC) has reaffirmed that its merger plans with several parties, including the Democratic Peoples Party (DPP), remain on course, despite claims by some expired members of the party (DPP) to have merged with the PDP.
In a statement issued in Lagos on yesterday by its National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said those who are misinforming the public for their selfish ends will soon realise that they have long been left behind in the scheme of things, adding that the DPP led by Lt.-Gen. Jeremiah Useni remains intact and that is the DPP that the AC is dealing with.
â€œWe call on our teeming supporters not to be swayed by the outright falsehood and deliberate misinformation being carried out byÂ Biodun Ogunbiyi and his sponsors, that their own DPP has merged with the PDP. These people are political jobbers who are seeking relevance, at all costs.
â€œThere is only one DPP, the one recognised by INEC and led by Gen. Useni, and that is the one we are doing business with. Ogunbiyi and his renegade group were expelled from the DPP for anti-party activities in 2008.
