INEC registers APDA, 4 other political parties

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) on Wednesday registered Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) and four other new political parties.

Adedeji Soyebi, the commission’s national commissioner and chairman, information and voter education committee, disclosed this at a news conference in Kaduna on Wednesday evening.

Soyebi spoke at the end of a meeting of resident electoral commissioners (RECs) and administrative secretaries from the 36 states of the federation.

The newly registered parties are:

Young Progressive Party (YPP)

Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA)

New Generation Party of Nigeria (NGP)

All Democratic Peoples Movement (ADPM)

Action Democratic Party (ADP)

Further, Soyebi said the registration of 90 associations were rejected because they did not meet the constitutional requirements.

‎”The commission today approved the applications of five of the associations which have fulfilled the constitutional requirements for registration.”

The registration of the new parties brings the total number of political parties in Nigeria to 45.
