African People’s Congress Denies Link With PDP, Unveils Party Logo, Acronym, And Emblem

African People’s Congress


Following calls from the new opposition merger and the Conference of Nigeria Political Parties, CNPP to know the sponsors of the new party APC, the brains behind the controversial African People’s Congress, APC, Thursday emerged to unfold their logo, constitution and emblem.

The new group whose aspiration for registration with the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has thrown confusion into merger plans by the country’s leading opposition political parties said, yesterday, that it was not doing a hatchet job on behalf of the ruling People’s Democratic Party, PDP like the opposition parties claimed.

Speaking at a ceremony where the brains behind the emerging party were formally unveiled, the Acting National Chairman of African People’s Congress, Chief Onyinye Ikeagwuonu, lamented what he described as poverty of leadership in the country since 1999, saying that the APC was on a rescue mission.

He said: “The PDP, ACN, CPC, ANPP, etc have remorselessly squandered the goodwill of Nigerians. While infrastructure suffers in the states with the economy of the states wound round monthly allocations and diverted council funds.”

He therefore called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, to urgently investigate the sources of funds used to purchase private jets by some state governors and also condemned what he called the desperation of some people for power in the country.

The party said its major objective was “to entrench a system that is centred on the people: to reclaim our crumbling institutions and failing nation; to give Nigerians reasons to believe again. Today, Nigerians have a party that is committed to rebuilding Nigeria.”

On the controversy surrounding the name APC, the Legal Adviser, Mr. Kingsley Nnadi, said the acronym should not be the problem but it should be the name, adding that any other group making claim to the acronym, APC, had not made any official request to the INEC which he said his African People’s Congress had made.

He debunked the allegation that the African People’s Congress was hurriedly floated by the members of the people’s Democratic Party, PDP, to scuttle the registration of All Progressives Congress, stressing that if the PDP had performed well there would have not been any need to float his APC.

“My party has no link with PDP. In fact, our intention is to take over power from the ruling party. If PDP is ruling well, there would have been no need to come up. We are out because PDP has failed to touch the lives of Nigerian.

“We have just one APC (African People’s Congress), the other one is not existing and INEC is aware of our party. The other APC only did merely negotiation, but we started our party over two years ago. With the documents submitted to the INEC, we have met the requirement of the Constitution and the Electoral Act.

“I believe that the unveiling of our party today, has finally put to rest the contention over APC, which one is authentic or not and we are waiting for INEC’s reply. We have our offices in over 26 states of the federation including our national headquarters and our support is massive.”

The Acting National Chairman of the African people’s congress, Chief Onyinye Ikeagwuonu, unveiled the party logo, acronym, and emblem while addressing newsmen.

Ikeagwuonu said that the emblem of the association would be a blazing sun (white hot) on a red square background.

“ The slogan of the party shall be APC: new Nigeria : great Africa, while the party flag shall be a red flag with the APC white sun logo imprinted in centre of the flag,” he said.

Ikeagwuonu said: “the major objective of the party is centred on the people, to reclaim our crumbling institutions and failing nation, and to give Nigerians reasons to believe again.”

“Today, Nigerians have a party that is committed to rebuilding Nigeria.”

The acting national chairman said that “poverty of leadership” had been the problem of Nigeria since 1999.

Ikeagwuonu said that government at the federal, state and local levels had failed to cleanse Nigeria of corruption, regardless of the party at the helm of affairs.


  1. This new party of a thing is a fraud incline were as he (chief oyinye ike whatever) been since, he and his party are just another fraudster in making.

  2. What should be realised here is it becomes TRUE that Igbo people are used whenever Nigeria is to be destroyed. Why Igbo people don’t love Nigeria? Since they don’t love Nigeria why do they like to rule Nigeria? Abach used them for his Tazarce bid. Babangida also used them for his Youth For Babangida for President. Obasanjo also used them for his Third Term Agenda. Why money influences Igbo more than National feelings? Why whoever wants to destroy Nigeria he easily buy the actions of Igbo supporters?

  3. Let us not condemn what he is saying at once. Since his claims are documented with INEC, then it is left for INEC so substantiate if what Chief Onyinye Ikeagwuonu is saying is true or just fabrication of his wildest imagination. We must learn to appreciate people who talks with facts, figures and supporting documents to back up their submissions. He has documented evidence to show that his party exists with INEC for about two years now.
