The merger talks between the Action Congress of Nigeria, the Congress for Progressive Change and other opposition parties are real, the National Publicity Secretary of the ACN, Alhaji Lai Mohammed has said.
He disclosed that the new platform that would emerge from the talks would sweep the ruling Peoples Democratic Party out of power in 2015.
The ACN’s spokesperson told reporters on Wednesday in Oro, Irepodun local government area of Kwara State shortly before the commencement of the 6th Lai Mahammed Annual Ramadan lecture.
He said all Nigerians are fed up with the PDP-led government in the country, saying all other political parties in the country were looking for a ‘Noah’s ark to rescue them.
His words: “Actually what is happening is not just talk between CPC and ACN, no political party is satisfied with this government. ANPP, even PDP are now looking for what I will call a Noah’s ark to rescue them. So make no mistake about it. It is a reality. It is going to happen and it will sweep PDP out of power.
“All these stupid insinuations that we tried it 10 years ago it did not work. Why are they afraid if it won’t work? They leave that to us but I can assure you by God’s willing it will work. We will resolve all our differences and that new platform will sweep PDP out of government.”
On the current security challenge in the country, Mohammed accused fifth columnists of thwarting attempt at ending the Boko Haram insurgency.
 “There are fifth columnists within the government that would not want an end to Boko Haram insurgency, as they are feeding fat on the situation. Almost a trillion naira was voted for security in 2011. This would translate to almost N2 billion a day.
“Those who are managing this funds some of them do not actually want an end to the menace. The economic situation does not help the situation either.
“I think this government has several times actually told Nigerians that it is helpless; that it is incapable of securing Nigerians and the primary responsibility of any government even before providing infrastructure is securing lives and property. Whichever government fails to do that does not deserve to be in power one day longer,” the ACN spokesman said.
