The leadership of the Action Alliance (AA) has denied the purported merger of the party with the All Progressives Congress (APC) in a bid to support the presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
National chairman of the party, Dr Adekunle Rufai Omoaje in a statement issued on Friday dispelled any link between the party and APC saying, the party would not work for any other candidate or political party.
Some individuals in the North West zone had in a statement signed by one Hajiya Amina Kilishi Lamido who claimed to be Zonal Coordinator of the Major Hamzat Almustafa (rtd) Presidential Council in the zone claimed that the AA campaign committee, its leaders and members of the party had merged with the presidential campaign team of Tinubu.
But the National Chairman of the AA, Omoaje who described the development as mere rumour, insisted that such arrangement only exists in the minds of those peddling the rumour.
Omoaje noted that all the claims of the paddlers of the rumour are mere figments of their own imagination as the AA remains one.
He gave the names of the party leaders from the North West zone to include Suleiman Abdulrasheed (National Secretary Kaduna State), Alhaji Muhammad Abubakar (National Vice Chairman North West Jigawa state), Hajiya Aisha Abdullahi Deputy National women leader (Niger state), Alhaji Sani Darma (Kano State Leader).
Others are the State Chairmen from North West zone including Hon. Magaji Marafa (Kaduna State), Saminu yaro (Kastina state ), Aliyu inusa Danbago (Kano State ), Alh. Ismaila Dutse (Jigawa State), Shuaiba Altine (Sokoto State), Tukur Musa Yaro (Kebbi state) and Hon. Sani idirs (Zanfara State).
He declared that none of the aforementioned leaders of the party have left for any other political party.
He said those contesting under the platform of the party through his leadership are the only authentic contestants of the party.
