Buhari not losing sleep over merger, says FCT group

A solidarity group for President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice president Yemi Osinbajo has declared that the Presidency is not losing sleep over the merger of 39 political parties who came together to wrest power from Buhari in 2019. 

The women group, Noble Women Movement for Buhari and Osinbajo, in a release made available to journalists in Abuja, described the merger as a convergence of politicians who have stolen the collective commonwealth of the people. 

The release issued by the director of publicity, Dr. Rachael Ahmadu, also described most of the groups as "briefcase political parties" who are not politically relevant in their constituencies. 

The release quoted the National President of the Noble Women Movement for Buhari and Osinbajo, Pastor (Mrs.) Mfawa Usani, as saying that President Buhari will not be distracted over those who are plotting to institutionalize corruption in Nigeria. 

"As a group, we want to state unequivocally that the Presidency is not losing sleep over the merger of some briefcase political parties with the Peoples Democratic Party. We saw the convergence of people who are just plotting to institutionalize corruption in Nigeria. People who ordinarily should be begging for forgiveness for looting our collective wealth. 

"The merger is the coming together of people who do not have political ideology, those who are not politically relevant in their various states and constituencies. They are crop of people who survive by Abuja political oxygen".
