The Peoples Democratic Party in Ondo State has dismissed reports circulating in mainstream media that it planned to merge with the Zenith Labour Party and compromise the candidature of its governorship standard-bearer, Mr. Eyitayo Jegede.

The party debunked the reports in a statement by its Publicity Secretary, Mr Kennedy Peretei, on Saturday.

The statement titled, ‘ No Alliance with ZLP’ described the report as a mere rumour and “a typical tale by the moonlight, often told during an election period.”

This statement reads:

“For the avoidance of doubt, we will like to declare to the whole world that the PDP has never sat down anywhere with anybody in the ZLP to discuss any merger plan, much less perceive any move or begging to make its governorship candidate step down.

“This is another typical tale by the moonlight, often told during an election period,” the party clarified.

“How on earth can the duly elected governorship candidate of the PDP, the biggest political party in Africa, step down for the candidate of a bedroom political party, formed in the heat of political harlotry? God forbid.

“While the PDP welcomes other political parties to join the winning team in dislodging the present locust regime under the APC and install a government of the people, the PDP has never changed its identity and name and will never commit the sacrilege at the Ondo State level.”
