Mr. Ajulo was a senatorial candidate in the Nigerian election of 2011.
The Executive Director, Egalitarian Mission Africa, Kayode Ajulo, on Monday said the recent merger of some political parties will not achieve the anticipated result.
Mr. Ajulo while speaking with reporters in Akure, said the welfare of the people, remained the best strategy to tame the PDP.
He noted that the only alternative to PDP at the moment is the Labour Party, LP, which is presently in power in Ondo State; because the party has an ideology.
He added that merger should not be to prosecute selfish interests or to move presidency to the Northern part of Nigeria.
“When you look at its constitution you will discover that it took care of the age-long welfarism which believe that those that work must be able to eat. Anybody that believes in the welfare of the people will be able to tackle the problem of the masses.
“The essence of merger should be to meet the aspiration of the people. I look forward to a merger where people will come together on the need to move Nigeria forward, where we will be able to tackle the energy crisis, security challenges infrastructural decay.
“It is when people of like minds come together and fashion out the way forward that the masses would recognize us and demand specific roles for the brains behind the progressive moves,” Mr. Ajulo added.
The politician said there must be struggle for power and that from the look of things; Nigeria is turning into a one-party state with the PDP calling the shot.
He said, “That means there is the need to have a strong and viable opposition. I am afraid the merger talks currently going will fail. It won’t work. It’s like the biblical tower of Babel when people come together to say they want to build a tower to meet God, everything crumbled.”
“If you look at the antecedents of the dramatis personae, those who are promoting this merger, you will see that we are going nowhere. When Ikimi, Tinubu, and Buhari, are sitting together to unseat the PDP.
“These are discordance of interests that will never work. It can only work when they set aside their egoistic interest and work for the development of the country,” he said.
Mr. Ajulo urged the people in government to behave responsibly by living above board and punish those who deserved punishment so that they could be seen as role models and mentors.
“It is the high time(for) the government to help the youth on the right attitude because giving light punishment to those embezzling our commonwealth is sending a wrong signals to our leaders of tomorrow,” he said.
