Merger Talks Tear CPC Apart (pic) by Idokojimmy: 9:03am On Dec 30, 2012
The proposed merger of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, and two other political parties is brewing tension in the camp of the former and is threatening to stall activities pursuant to accomplishing the merger objective – the two other parties in the merger talks are the All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, and the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN.

This is because a section of the leadership of CPC is not happy with the choice of the former deputy governor of Bauchi State, Garuba Ghadi, as Chairman of the CPC Negotiating Team to the Joint Negotiating Committee on the  merger.

Indeed, Ghadi’s choice by General Muhammadu Buhari (rtd), national leader and presidential candidate of the party, is not going down well with the likes of Alhaji Buba Galadima, Secretary General of the party; Mustapha Saliu Bello, Deputy National Chairman; Sule Yahaya Hamma (Dr), General Buhari’s Advisor; and  Murtala Usman Aliyu.

The quartet, Sunday Vanguard learnt, held a meeting on Wednesday in Abuja where their concerns were tabled.

At the meeting, each lamented the developments in the party regarding the proposed merger with the consensus that the choice of Ghadi would not do the CPC any good because he was not particularly suitable.

Interestingly, it was also observed that “of all those who started on this political journey with Buhari since 2002, only Hamma and Galadima” remain in the leadership cadre of the presidential candidate’s associates.

In fact, Galadima, who is one of the hardliners in the CPC, lamented that the Bola Tinubu-led ACN that have since hijacked the proposed merger succeeded in blackmailing Buhari into believing that without a merger, he can not become president of Nigeria.

At some point during the meeting, Galadima himself was blamed for the current turn of events in the CPC.
One of the participants insisted that Galadima’s fishing expenditure for membership brought in all manner of characters “who have now turned their backs on him”.

On the merger talks, it was disclosed at the meeting that “the planned political merger has rather and, unfortunately, brought them more crisis in the party and that the CPC is consequently divided”.
Sunday Vanguard discovered that whereas Buhari and Prince Tony Momoh are on one side of the divide, the likes of Galadima, Bello, and Hamma are on the other side.

Galadima reportedly told the gathering that the planned Joint Negotiating Committee meetings of the three concerned opposition political parties would not immediately  be on the issue of political merger as is being envisaged in some quarters.

According to him, the three parties would rather be discussing and concerned with the underlisted issues:
*Political power structure and sharing;
*Harmonization of the constitution and the manifesto of the parties involved; and
*Programmes and development plans while the concerned political parties would be in power.

While these preliminary arrangements are on, a new political party would be registered, after which CPC, ACN and the ANPP would eventually abandon their respective parties to join the newly registered party that would emerge, after which leaders and followers would align.

*laffin in Ideke* Gen Buhari has failed to realise dat d political arena is diffrent from d military.
Most of his supporters are nt doing so out of principle or shared ideology. They are using him as a ladder 2 get 2 power & revel in aggrandizement at d expense of d masses.
Once upon a time, a certain 'reformed' Gen Obj came from prison to Aso rock. We had high hopes bt it ws dashed. D 'real' politicians hijacked Obj & made a mess of his govt n suppozd integrity.
Yar'adua came in & d story repeated itself. GEJ is here now & they have made him blind, deaf & dumb. They want to make him mad also!
Ds same ppl ensures a negative assesment of d govt by d media & d masses to keep such political figure in check.
I have always held d view dat Gen Buhari should nurture a party based on principle. Select d members dat share his ideology & even if it is a councillorship seat dat he wins at d end of d day, use it as a platform to showcase their intendment.
Shld Gen Buhari get to power wt d set of political soulmates he parades, they will succeed in tarnishing his hard earned reputation dat he built over d yrs. Ones action at d twilight of his life ,obliterates other past deeds,good or bad. D Gen shld avoid ds as he is alredi at d departure lounge.

The candidature of Gen. Buhari is beyond Petty-Party-Politics. Even if He stands as an independent candidate, Nigerians will troop out, mobilize and massively vote for him. So all these Jonathan's media attacks dogs(Vanguard Newspaper chief culprit should shut it lipsrsealed) Nigerians are now wiser.

It is only those who are satisfied with Nigeria becoming a One Party State through PDP that'll oppose or move to truncate the merger, though the characters in the political space are almost the same but having two or more stronger parties is healthy for our democracy. It is inconsequential if Galadima and co are dissatisfied With the merger as long as Buhari who single handedly controls the party is interested.

CPC is a confused party, they practically killed themselves in the 2011 elections and yet cried wolf for their self inflicted problems.
How do you intend to rule this country with only Northern votes, you don't even bother to campaign in other parts of the country yet you want to rule evrybody ? Silly. If the CPC kne their onions, how many core Northern states did they win in the last governorship elections ? I dey laugh
The CPC should better BEG Tinubu and the ACN for this merger to work so that they can have a slightly national spread if not they will be amongst the parties that INEC will have to de register. Nigeria has passed the stage of tribal politics and elections are becoming more transparent that's how our comerade governor got into power in Edo state a supposedly PDP stronghold while the PDP was able to win some LG seats in Lagos state.
CPC should stop their tribal politics if they want to be accepted by Nigerians.

I agree wit this. It is to all our interests and in d interest Democracy itself, dat Stronger political parties emerge. Pray d Merger tin, in any form, works out; it rili wudn't even mata who wins d nx election...and hopefully, it wud help opposition parties engage in Constructive criticisms rather than Politics of Frustration.

Buhari na bad market as far as Nigerian politics is concerned especially as he plans to rule this great nation. I would rather advice him to nominate someone more youthful and dynamic for the 2015 presidential elections than for him to drag the CPC or any merged party back with his guaranteed failure at the polls and subsequent rigmarolling for years at election petitition tribunals.
The ACN is already prepping Fashola for 2015 (as VP whether anybody likes it or not) it would be unfair and unwise to make him serve under someone old enough to be his grandfather/ancestor grin. That's if the merged parties win the presidency in 2015 sha, people make your votes count pls.

Birds of the same feather MUST flock together apparently. Tinubu owned ACN merges with Ayatollah Buhari's CPC.

Indeed the best is to have two parties as we had in the 3rd republic experiment with maradona IBB's manufactured NRC and SDP.
It was such arrangement that neutralised, to a large extent, the factors of ethnicity and religion and allowed MKO Abiola emerge as winner of June 12,1993 elections.

Comprehension problems abi? una no even fit read well and comprehend. the poster said Nigerians, he/she didn't say all Nigerians because no candidate can get ALL Nigerians to vote for him/her, those who voted for him all these while aren't Nigerians or are they from Britain? i guess una too be graduates/literates abi?

Now, for you people to know that Buhari is a good market for sane people with healthy mindset and good foresight, in 2003 under ANPP, he pulled between 3-6 million votes, in 2007,he pulled another 6-9 million votes and 2011 with a less than 1 year old party, he pulled 12-14 million votes with relatively tight budget. sane minds with sound reasoning faculty can deduct from all these that this man is not just an ordinary Nigerian, rather a Nigeria alot of people respect.

He left ANPP, can anyone tell me how many votes ANPP got in the presidential, state and legal government elections? how many people got elected under ANPP?

Now to CPC which was less than 1 year old got votes that ACN,ANPP, AGPA and all other parties excluding the ruling party got all-together. what does this indicate? it indicates that this man is not just your anykind of politician out there.

My prayer is that PDP with their cunny/demonic/devilis and deceitful ways won't break down the merget talks with their moles planted in all these parties trying to merge.
