All Progressives Congress for a Change

All Progressives Congress or APC was formed on February 6, 2013 as a political party in Nigeria. It was mainly created for the 2015 election. There are four opposition parties which triggered the APC. It includes the Congress for Progressive Change or CPC, All Nigeria Peoples Party or ANPP, the Action Congress of Nigeria or ACN, and the All Progressives Grand Alliance or APGA. John Odigie Oyegun is the named chairman of APC. Most of APC’s support can be found within Northern and Southwestern Nigeria. These areas are greatly occupied by biggest ethnic groups such as Hausa Fulani and Yoruba.

There was a representative for each alliance who signed the entire resolution:

All Progressives Congress got the approval of Independent National Electoral Commission or INEC in 2013. As a result, APC finally became a political party. Two groups, namely African People’s Congress and the All Patriotic Citizens, also submitted an application. The former had an acronym of APC, which is similar to All Progressive Congress.

Nigerians see All Progressives Congress as an answer to the governing of People’s Democratic Party (PDP). There were 5 governors who decided to join APC:

All Progressives Congress seem to be the ultimate luck of Muhammadu Buhari for winning the Presidential race in 2015. Muhammad’s previous involvement on other political parties did not lead him to victory. In 2003 and 2007, he failed to acquire the desired position under All Nigeria Peoples Party. In 2011, he was not able to get the position under the Congress for Progressive Change. Now that he succeeded, there are expectations that he will do everything for the progress of Nigeria.
