ACPN threatens to sue PDP, TAN over Jonathan rallies

02 September 2014, 16:13

Abuja -  One of the opposition political parties in the country, Allied Congress of Nigeria (ACPN), has threatened to take legal action to stop the nation-wide campaign  for President Goodluck Jonathan by the Transformation Ambassadors of Nigeria (TAN).

This is because the rallies contravene Section 221of  the Nigerian constitution, which  prohibits  association other than a political party from canvassing for votes for any candidates at any election, reports Vanguard.

Ganiyu Galadima, Acting National Chairman of ACPN, said that despite the restriction order, TAN had with the tacit support of the leaders of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) continued to embark on public campaigns for the re-election bid of President Goodluck Jonathan.
