The National Publicity Secretary of the Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, Rotimi Fashakin, has said that the recent merger by four opposition parties will strengthen democracy and ensure better governance in Nigeria.
Mr. Fashakin said in Abuja that one of the primary aims of the merger is to restore the lost glory of Nigeria via good governance.
He said that CPC strongly believes that the success of the merger would make a great difference, soonest, in the history of Nigerian politics.
“As a party, we have endorsed the entry of the All Progressive Congress, APC, into Nigeria’s politics as an ideologically based political association,” he said.
APC, he said, is essentially structured to provide an alternative platform to Nigerians. He also gave the assurance that “it (APC) shall be open to all patriots that are ready to join”.
“APC has absolute respect for the rights of individuals or groups on whether or not to associate within a democracy,” Mr. Fashakin said.
He also said that other political parties, progressive individuals, and groups are also welcomed to the new party.
