A public policy think tank, the Neo Africana Centre, has expressed dismay over the disinformation making the rounds that some presidential candidates in the February 25 polls are in merger talks with the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP with a view to withdrawing from the race in favour of the PDP presidential candidate.

In a statement by its Director of Public Affairs, Jenkins Udu, said while the Centre has always sneered at such insinuations, it was deeply alarmed when Mr Peter Obi, the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, was touted as one of those considering withdrawing from the race for Atiku Abubakar of the PDP.

According to the Centre, such an unholy rumour is viewed with utmost disgust. It called on Nigerians to shun desperate politicians who want to ride on the back of falsehood to score a cheap political point.

It also said that it is convinced that nation-wreckers are trying to hide under the veneer of politics to unleash anarchy and confusion on the system. To this end, the body wants the electorate to be vigilant and shun desperate campaigners and their antics.
