APC pins poll hopes on Obama campaign firm

18 February 2014, 16:20

Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced the engagement of prominent international political consultants, AKPD Message and Media, to boost its chances in next year’s polls.

According to officials from the opposition party, the Chicago, United States-based firm, is best known for its lead role in US President Barack Obama's Presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012.

They explained that the firm had also worked with key Democratic party candidates throughout the U.S. and has a strong reputation for supporting leading populist movements across the globe.

“We have been working closely with AKPD Message and Media over the past few months and we shall leverage on the firm's skill, experience and expertise throughout the upcoming campaign cycle,” said APC Interim National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed in Lagos.

He added. “As a party destined to bring change and succour to the long suffering people of Nigeria, the APC is proud and excited to work with one of the foremost exponents of change in the world, especially with their track record of success in political climates akin to ours, notably in Kenya, Tanzania and Ghana. With this strategic partnership, the process of change in Nigeria has already begun and it can't be stopped.”

In the next elections, APC is seen as posing the major threat to the ruling People’s Democratic Party’s stranglehold on power.
