The search for an opposition Coalition partners in the All Progressives Congress, APC, who registered a new party early Wednesday in Abuja when nine of the 11 governors in the group adopted a logo, a slogan,and a motto for the proposed party is on the verge of collapse if issues are not brought to the table early.
But some reliable sources have said that the merger is heading to the rocks as some of the alterations in the new logo has not been to the betterment of all involved.
According to the source the ANPP, ACN, CPC and others in the merger agreement are brewing for a likely collapse due to disagreement over the new Logo that was registered amidst many.
The source also stressed that their are indications that PDP might have penetrated the merger group to insist on a particular logo against the wishes of other merger group.
‘The intention of PDP is to buy over the merger group, particularly Shekarau, Yerima Bakura and possibly Tom Ikimi.
‘Let me assure all persons interested in the merger, as State chairmen and major stakeholders in the polity and merger interest, we are all talking to our selves as State Chairmen from ACN, CPC and ANPP.’ The source said.
The source also stated that the merger group is merely considered a committee and what ever they are doing is purely advisory stressing that ‘they will finish their adhoc work and report back to their NEC. It will be there that, all Party’s will kill any submission that is not in conformity on arrival.
It will happen across parties to send a signal that, they have not carried the state chairmen along.’ The source emphasized.
The source also warned some of the big wigs of the party like Shekarau and Yerima to take Heed, or ‘nemesis will soon catchup with them.’ The source said that ‘we will deal with them politically and as Northerners’.
The logo seems to be an issue as some aggrieved parties feels that there should be a new logo and flag and not playing with peoples mind.
‘To the joint merger committee and other stakeholders, if you are all working for Nigerians, and the merger has a brand new name, the Logo too must be brand new, so that no party will claim ownership. Anything short of this, we are all heading to the ROCKS. ”
The ACN logo, unlike the APC logo had no red frames, however the broom on the white background, according to insiders at the meeting, was a concession to the view that the broom is generally more acceptable and impactful than ANPP’s maize and CPC’s pen.
