PDP not fazed by APC registration

01 August 2013, 07:25Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is not perturbed by the registration of the All Peoples Congress (APC) and does not view the biggest opposition party as a threat to its ambitions.

The ruling party also congratulated the APC for its successful registration.

The Independent National Electoral Commission confirmed APC's registration on Wednesday, about six months after its formation.

In a press statement, Tony Okeke, the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the ruling party said PDP still maintained its pre-eminent position and enjoyed the widest popularity and acceptance among Nigerians across the country.

He said Nigerians expected the leaders of the opposition party to "eschew all forms of bitterness and desperation and desist from politics of propaganda which characterized their former parties."

Okeke urged the APC leaders to focus on pertinent issues and engage in more robust debates on the economy and other issues of governance in the general interest of the country.

Formed in February, APC is the result of an alliance by Nigeria's four biggest opposition parties - the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC), the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), and the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
