Another opposition political party, the Democratic Peoples Party (DPP), has signified its intention to join the newly formed opposition party coalition, All Progressives Congress (APC).

DPP's entry has further swelled the number of the  opposition parties involved in the merger to four, with the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and All Nigeria People's Party ( ANPP) already in the merger.

Addressing Journalists Wednesday after the party's National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, the DPP National Chairman retired Major General Bashir S. Magashi, said the party having analyzed the present political development in the country has resolved to close ranks with the other opposition parties to float a merger.

He said the party has decided to set up a merger committee to immediately enter into negotiations with other opposition parties and leaders of APC.
