The Interim National Publicity Secretary of the newly registered All Progressives Congress (APC), Lai Mohammed has described the party’s registration by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has victory for Nigerian and democracy.
The registration, he said has propelled the country to the league of top democratic nations with two major political parties.
The statement reads, ”With the approval of our merger by INEC and the emergence of APC, today marks the beginning of a new dawn for our country and her long-suffering people.
“We thank Nigerians both here and in the Diaspora for standing by us. We thank the media for their fairness, and we commend INEC for doing the right thing and for not succumbing to pressures from phantom political associations that sought to force it to circumvent the law”.
While expressing delight that Nigerians can now look forward to a truly democratic party, the Interim APC spokesperson said the membership registration plans will be unveiled soon.
”We will also be unveiling our plans to turn today’s hopelessness into a time of great opportunities, to reverse the downward slide in our socio-economic development, and to ensure that every Nigerian benefits from the commonwealth, instead of the present situation in which a few fat cats are milking the system dry at the expense of the citizenry,” the statement reads further.
