2019: APDA Denies Merger Rumours, Pledge To Take Over Lugard House


As the 2019 general election approaches, the Advanced Peoples Democratic Party (APDA) has vehemently denied merger talks any other political party.
In a press statement by the Chairman, Kogi State Chapter of APDA, Hon. Abdulmumini Ibrahim called on its supporters to remain loyal to the party with the assurance of winning the 2019 general elections. Abdulmumini asserted that APDA is set to take over Kogi Lugard House in 2019.
“In the wake of political development in Nigeria and Kogi State in particular, we wish to state that contrary to the insinuations and rumours making the rounds that APDA will merge with other political parties in the forthcoming elections, we wish to state emphatically that the party was not and will not be in merger talks with any political party in the country.

“After a meeting held today in the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja, it was resolved that APDA is not in merger talk or affiliated with any political party.

“The party is expecting more persons and political groups. The party assures the general public that APDA is a party that has come to stay and will never sell out as currently perceived by enemies of the party. The party is currently engaging electorates at different levels of discussion and we can assure you that APDA has come to stay and will not merge with any party both at the state and the federal level.

“The party is consolidating its spread in her continuous campaign and propagating its manifesto to the people. We have more than enough aspirants for various political offices and any of the aspirants have the pedigree and competence to win elections come 2019. APDA is ready to run all its elections without compromise or contempt of any sort.

“The party is overwhelmed with the increase in the numbers of new entrants to the party and currently evaluating intending decampees approaching the party. On daily basis, we receive more aspirants who have indicated interest to contest in the party primaries ahead of next year’s general elections.

“APDA currently enjoys the support of electorates who are already tired of APC led State Government, PDP or any other political party in the State. The party is currently busy planing the inauguration of the State Eastern Zonal Executives which is slated for early July and will be consequently followed by the western and central zones respectively,” the statement read.
Abdulmumini added that APDA belongs to all and is not the sole property of any individual. He urged all to join hands to move the party forward to take over Lugard house come 2019.
