After all the blowing hot air, it appears that stakeholders of the emergent mega opposition party, All Progressives Congress (APC), would have no other option than to choose another name.

This is because the original owners of the acronym “APC” are right now unveiling the party at a ceremony in Abuja, the Nigerian capital.

“The event is about to start; I’ll keep you posted,” Omooba Damilare Oloyede, a journalist at the venue of the unveiling, told News Express on phone.

“APC”, the acronym for African Progressive Congress, is holding the Public Unveiling and Commissioning of Party Secretariat at its headquarters located at LEADERSHIP House, Plot 983 Ahmadu Bello Way Opposite Apo Quarters, Garki Abuja.

News Express recalls that the Independent national Electoral Commission (INEC) had ruled out the chances of registering the mega party as APC, disclosing that another set of politicians had earlier applied for registration under the same APC acronym. Officials of the emergent mega party however claimed that the electoral umpire was lying.

News Express is still making efforts to get the identities of those behind the APC being unveiled at the Abuja ceremony.
