National Chairman of the APC, Chief Bisi Akande, stated this when officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), led by its Director of Political Party Monitoring and Liaison, Shittu Ibrahim, visited the party’s secretariat in Wuse, Abuja.
Akande said, “We have always been confident that no power under the sun will stop us from becoming a political party. From the beginning of this merger, we have gone to various conventions, we have made joint applications and we have been exchanging correspondence with INEC, but they have never visited us before.
“Today, INEC officials are in our home, and they are happy we have got a home. The commission has never faulted what we did right from when we wrote the first joint application, and we have completed the merger phase of the exercise.
“INEC now needs administrative investigation to show that what we have done was according to their laid down procedures. Today, they came for verification and we have proved to them that we exist like gentlemen and in a befitting accommodation.”
