All Progressives Congress

APC says it’s eager to bring change to Nigeria
The All Progressives Congress, APC, said it has engaged the services of prominent international political consultants, AKPD Message and Media, to boost its electoral chances in the upcoming elections.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Tuesday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said the Chicago-based firm is best known for its lead role in President Barack Obama’s presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012.

The party explained that the firm has also worked with key U.S.’ Democratic Party candidates throughout the U.S. and has a strong reputation for supporting leading populist movements across the globe.

“We have been working closely with AKPD Message and Media over the past few months and we shall leverage on the firm’s skill, experience and expertise throughout the upcoming campaign cycle,” APC said. “As a party destined to bring change and succour to the long suffering people of Nigeria, the APC is proud and excited to work with one of the foremost exponents of change in the world, especially with their track record of success in political climates akin to ours, notably in Kenya, Tanzania and Ghana. With this strategic partnership, the process of change in Nigeria has already begun and it can’t be stopped.”

The APC is Nigeria’s second largest political party and has 16 of the 36 state governors as members.

    The coming onboard of the mega party christened APC is an answer to the masses of Nigeria by the Almighty. Apc as a party has no religious,tribal or regional coloration. Infact it is a silent and cool revolution designed by theCreator to free all Nigerians from the clutches of those corrupt and heartless oppressors. Anybody or group of people that tries to arrogate either religion or tribal linings onto the Apc has to get his head to be examine by the psychiatrist. Whether one likes it or not anything that has a beginning must have an end and so the end has definately come for the pdp. My dear fellow Nigerians shine your eyes well well ooh bcos the era of electoral rigging is over. One can succeed in fooling the people most of the time but all the people cannot be fooled always.

    It’s another way of money laundering. what happen to advertising and marketing communications agencies that abound in Nigeria. Is Nigeria now America. What will your consultants do in villages. Abegi

      Olu, I imagine you feel real smug and smart for making this observation, but you really exhibited your ignorance. First it’s not money laundering if the money involved is private fund which is what party campaign funds are. Second, how do you know the local agencies you are promoting understand political campaign management? Third, the consultants don’t necessarily have to live in the villages. Their business is about designing and packaging messages, using raw data provided by their clients. It is for the APC to go to the villages and campaign in the language the villagers understand. People like you still do not understand that Nigeria is no longer some backwater country but a part of a global community of ideas.
