Inside sources familiar with the merger talks told the newspaper that the talks was suspended for two weeks, with Senator Bola Tinubu reported to have told Buhari and his team that all positions including the presidential ticket are open in the new merger talks. It was further revealed that both the CPC and one of the major parties in the proposed merger talks, the All Nigeria Peoples Congress, are jostling for the presidential ticket of the yet to be formed party.
