Failure to register APC criticised

30 July 2013, 09:02

Abuja - Former presidential candidate of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) Nuhu Ribadu argued electoral authorities were sabotaging the All People Congress (APC) by failing to register it ahead of the 2015 general election.

APCs has formally applied for registration as a political party but the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is yet to register it.

“INEC has no defensible reason not to register APC as a political party as all the requirements to consummate its merger has been met.

"The delay in registering the APC as a political party is nothing but buying of time by the ruling People Democratic Party (PDP). Such moves will not prevent it imminent collapse,” said Ribadu.

Meanwhile, the United Kingdom wing of the APC, through its Twitter handle, also criticized the delay in registering the party.

The ACN is one of four opposition parties that merged to form APC in February this year.

APC is also a result of an alliance by Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), who merged to challenge PDP in the next general election.
