APC registration: Beginning of the end of PDP —Ribadu,


A chieftain of the newly registered All Progressives Congress (APC), Mallam Nuhu Ribadu, has charged members of the party to strive harder to achieve the ultimate goal of dislodging the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from power.
Ribadu, who joined other Nigerians in expressing happiness over the emergence of the major opposition party, in a statement in Abuja, congratulated key players “for shoving their personal interests, in order to allow for mutation of a pan-Nigerian party that can provide credible alternative to the ruling party.”
The statement, issued by his media aide, Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, quoted the 2011 presidential candidate of  the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) as expressing hope that the new party would have sweeping victory in the next general election.
According to him, the registration of the party by the electoral body “is not the end. It is the beginning of the end of misrule and cluelessness,” as he called for renewed zeal and commitment by members of the party to achieve the desired objective.
He called on Nigerians to resist manipulations of the electoral process, either through whipping up of religious or sectional sentiments or by the use of money, maintaining that 2015 general election would be a major litmus test for the opposition and all progressive Nigerians.
