Now That Mega Party APC Gets INEC Approval - What Next ?? (By Dele Momodu)

Fellow Nigerians, let me start by congratulating the leaders and members of the newly registered political party, All Progressives Congress (APC) of Nigeria, on their well-deserved victory. 

Mega Party APC Approved By INEC - What Next ?

. You will agree with me that it was never a smooth ride for them, and they were forced to fight like wounded lions, every step of the way, against all manner of forces that attempted to frustrate their efforts and derail their mission. 
But APC should not be over-confident. What binds PDP together is very strong, access to power and money, a surfeit of it for that matter.
