APC Registration: ACN Accuses INEC, PDP of Deceit

The Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) Tuesday accused both the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) of engaging in lies and manipulation of facts by claiming that the phantom African Peoples Congress (APC) has applied to the commission for registration.

The party said its findings have revealed that the phantom political party with the same abbreviation as APC has not complied with the legal provisions for the application of party registration but that it was merely being used as a ploy to destabilise the genuine efforts of the opposition coalition to form a merger.

Their disappointment notwithstanding, THISDAY learnt Tuesday that the leaders of the opposition merging parties are already making arrangements to change the name of their party as a fallback option, in the event they fail to secure INEC’s approval for the name of their party – All Progressives Congress (APC).
