The national chairman of the new mega party, Action Democratic Party (ADP), Yagbaji Sani says the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) was only after power.

The new party chieftain who spoke to Vanguard noted that Nigerians have lost confidence in the party given the economic situation of the country and their insensitive administration.

The party chieftain argued that Nigerians are tired of all the party in existence because they have all failed the country.

“In fact, I am not sure Nigerians still have confidence in those parties. You said there are many parties. Well, there are many parties but we are different. This one is a movement, whose time has come.

According to him, the new part is “ a party whose idea has come, we are not like any other party.”

“Yes. In fact, Nigerians have lost confidence in those parties. So, for us, it is a call to duty that we should rescue the political stage from imminent collapse,” he said.

Speaking on the progressive nature of the proposed new party, he said that: “You can call us progressive. We are progressive in the sense that we want to deepen democracy. We don’t think democracy in this country, as it is now, is properly situated. Even the executive is not as democratic as it should be.

“So, we are coming to deepen democracy. When you have democracy, the issue of whether it is progressive or conservative or whatever is immaterial. You can say that our leaning is towards being progressive to ensure that the democratic tenets are allowed to really have a say.

“Why the APC got it wrong is that they were just after power. Otherwise they would have been responsive to the needs of the people,” he added.

Going further, Sani insisted that the new party is poised to oust President Muhammadu Buhari from government in the 2019 general election due to the situation in the country.

He described the leadership crisis in the ruling All Progressives Congress, (APC) which he attributed to poor coordination of affairs in the party’s administration, as a huge advantage to the new party
