The African People’s Congress has accused the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) of complicity in its non-registration as it has not tendered any cogent reasons for not doing so.

The party said that despite INEC’s intent to frustrate the APC by not registering it, the APC will go ahead with its plans to conduct its first party primaries and also support a candidate for the Anambra State elections in 2014.

Speaking to journalists in Abuja on Monday, the interim chairman of the party, Chief Michael Ikeagwuonu accused INEC of truncating the party’s effort to get registered without giving any reasons for its action.

Chief Ikeagwuonu said the party would not be bullied into submission but will rather fight for its registration even if it means getting to the Supreme Court in the legal fight.
