"Yes, it is possible for the merger of political parties to come into play again in 2023 in order to defeat Governor Seyi Makinde of the PDP. I cannot rule it out. It can happen.
“Makinde and I are not fighting. You should get it right -we are not fighting. But I cannot work for him. I have been talking about my working relationship with him and the efforts we made before he won the governorship election in 2019, from which I have not benefited."

We cannot work with Seyi Makinde

Olopoeyan further added that it is not possible for the NNPP to work with Makinde to bring the desired development to the state.

He said Makinde already sees himself winning the next year’s governorship election which he described as unlikely.

He added:

"Any politician can only know whether he wins or who wins on election day. The evening of election day, when the counting of ballots is being done, is when you, as a politician, will know whether you are losing or winning.”
