4 Political Parties Fuse Into All Progressive Change

Four leading opposition parties have merged into the All Progressives Congress.

The merging parties are: the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP), Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

The Chairman of the ACN Merging Committee, Chief Tom Ikimi said that the merger became necessary to offer Nigerians hope and peace.

Chief Ikimi told journalists that the detail of the new party’s identity is being concluded.

10 state governors from the different political parties and geo-political zones on Tuesday met in Lagos and endorsed on-going merger talks by their various political parties.

The Governor of Zamfara State, Alhaji Abdulazziz Abubakar Yari while responding to a question on whether the merger talk is about unseating the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), said it is about how to re-direct Nigeria unto the right perspectives.

He added that it is a question of asking if the people have been happy since 1999 till date when the PDP has been in power. “If the contrary has been the case then the leaders are duty bound to drive the people aright.”

“We believe that the PDP has not done enough.  We have the idea, the knowledge and the progressive intention to move the country forward. So, if you say that we are going to move PDP out of power, yes we are ready to do that, God willing”, Governor Yari emphasized.

    to me Adams Oshomole is one of the hardest opposition, now that he is not among this group, i doubt if this opposition is real

      He is in this group, he is a member of the Action Congress of Nigeria

    Ten and ten pens they say is the same, as far as I know their is no difference between PDP and the other parties, they should prove us wrong with their performance in their various states, the devil you know is better than the angel you don’t know, they say, but in this case they are all devils, none of all these people are that occupying political offices are there for the suffering mass. I rest my case.

      There is a difference between PDP and ACN, at least that I know.

        We should not continue managing what we have had for years, we need a change and there’s no better time than now. We need the youth (young vibrant people) in place of old elderly people to contribute meaningfully to our society

           Where are the institutions of democracy that can be linked with ACN, CPC, ANPP & APGA, in all these parties ANPP & APGA are slightly different in that ANPP has no particular face or person as a leader and it is a national party, APGA also has no particular face or person as leader but it is a regional party South east, ACN belongs to Tinubu after Atiku dumped it on him by going back to PDP it is also a regional party south west, CPC belongs to Buhari he is their base, they are non-starters, Lets face facts PDP as corrupt and inept as they are is the only other national party besides ANPP, these two parties hold congresses where real politicking takes place, while in ACN & CPC it is Tinubu & Buhari that holds sway and appoint flag bearers, Yes PDP governors do the same thing now but even at that you can never identify PDP with a particular face, lets face it, they are all the same no difference, they all do not have internal democracy, no manifestos, no party discipline and worst of all they all are struggling to legalize their stealing by taking over the reign of leadership of the country. Let us watch and see, after all the ACN states are being run in different styles if they had a manifesto the approach would be the same, refer to UPN days if you were around then because I was.

            your comment sucks, very very retrogresive, and backward, no true awoist can think like this no matter what

          • mayorala

             Yes it does but reality itself sucks too, death is real but it sucks, war is real but sucks, child birth which is a bundle of joy also sucks because it is painful, it all depend on which side of the divide that you are but I have just said the truth, none of all these parties are truly democratic, lets wait and see timewill tell, I have bookmarked this page and I will remind you.

    joined them will soon scatter them. ACN, no hope for presidency, ANPP no hope.
    Buhari will still certainly emerge as the candidate for presidency, the battle
    is for VP. Asiwaju for VP? Who is the eastern contender? NONE. Senate president
    who? Certainly an ex-governor from the east. What else.

    My people
    this is GREED BY LEVELS. Unemployment do catch big man now, or rather

    Those in
    the Senate and House from the various all work together for eating together.
    Presidency is all the target.

    My fellow
    Nigerians, do we really care who is the president as long as my state governor
    rules like a human being? Only those that care are those that share in the
    national cake.

    May God
    open our eyes and expose everyone toying with the destiny of this nation. If
    CPC can finally join to the likes of ACN and whatever you call the other
    parties, then our Mr. Integrity has nothing called integrity at all, but General

    Are we
    not spending millions of Naira on each of the senators and reps of those same
    parties, and governors of same going home with hundreds of millions every year
    without complaining of making adjustment considering the common man in Nigeria?

    Make no
    mistake Nigerians, they are not for us, but they need us, and who so ever is
    not for us is against us.

    This is nothing but a gathering of conspirators planning how to loot the country. What are their credentials? They want to divide and rule Nigeria but  they will not succeed because they are not sincere. They are not patriots and they cannot fool anyone.

      If we are Nigerians and truely love our country then we must shun sentiment and tell ourselves the truth that stere us in the face. We are having the worst time here and you sit there and call people names. Please go around town and see how Nigerians welcome APC then you will realise that you better join the train or be left out. We welcome any form of change now cos we are tired of empty promisses. Welcome on board.

    When I looked at the people saying they are disappointed in Fashola I realized that the intentions behind the so called Nat. Good Governance Tour is loughable. Nigerian are tired of this show of campaign for 2015 without much on ground for Nigerians to see. Just give us one reason why we should repeat what seems like a mistake we have made in 2011?
