All Progressives Congress May Change Name As Controversy Deepens




Progressives Congress is considering a name change should the African People’s Congress beat it to the APC acronym.

Three political associations are laying claim to the acronym in their bid to be recognised as political parties by the Independent National Electoral Commission, but reports say one political party withdrew last week.

Sources say All Progressives Congress may add the alphabet “N” (which will stand for Nigeria) to its version of APC, to distinguish it from any other.

A prominent member of the association said adding ‘N’ to the acronym will solve the controversy.

“We may just add ‘N’ to our acronym if this matter drags on for too long. We find it diversionary.”

National Publicity Secretary of the Congress for Progressive Change, Rotimi Fashakin, however said the name change was speculative.

He said, “Whatever anyone tells you about our merger now is speculative and untrue. We have said it over and again that the acronym APC is our intellectual property, whatever the PDP and its agents in the system are doing to frustrate our registration will not succeed.”

Also speaking on the issue, National Publicity Secretary of the Action Congress of Nigeria, Mr. Lai Mohammed, said the All Progressive Congress would not change its name.

He said, “It is a big lie. We are not changing our name. We are sticking to our name.”
