The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, has scoffed at the prospect of formation of the proposed mega party, said to be the brainchild of former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu and former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar.

Tinubu, believed to be unhappy with the raw deal he has reportedly been handed down by President Muhammadu Buhari is said to have teamed up with Atiku, whose eyes have not left the nation’s number one job since the current democratic experiment in the country to wrestle power from the APC in 2019.

But Oyegun, who had had more than a rough ride with Tinubu on the APC train, however, told reporters on Tuesday, that rather than being afraid of the party, it should be encouraged to come on board so as to have a formidable opposition.

Discountenancing the talks that the two APC stalwarts were behind the party, Oyegun, who said he had met with party leaders across board including Atiku, added that he was actually waiting for Tinubu to return from his trip, so that we can also meet with him and have meaningful discussion because he is a well-respected leader of this party.”

“We don’t feel threatened at all. No mega party will survive the APC. I don’t know where the name mega party suddenly came from in the lexicon of politics in this country. We will infact encourage a mega party, because with the gradual collapse of PDP, we want a party that can make us sit upright and be on our toes in terms of delivery of services to our people.

“A party that will make us feel challenged, that will make democracy real and offer the people a real choice. We are not threatened at all. We are focused on our mission made difficult by the current economic situation worldwide, which of course is compounded by the collapse of the oil market. We are reforming this country, reforming it ethically, morally and economically by building a fresh economic base which will no longer depend on the extractive industry which does not involve the people.”
