The Action Congress (AC) resolved to change its name to Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), following a successful merger talk with the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) and some members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Democratic Peoples Party (DPP). Lai Mohammed, the National Publicity Secretary of the party, said this yesterday in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, during a meeting of the party national working committee held with members of the Ogun State Chapter, adding that the colour of the new party will be green-white-blue.
“The merger parties have resolved to use the platform of (the) Action Congress, and to make it a national party that will cut across. We have, therefore, resolved to change the name now to Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN),’ Mr Mohammed said.
He added that the broom logo of the AC will still remain its identification, while the Action Congress has been mandated to write officially to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) with the parties’ resolution on the merger attached.
A technical committee has also been put in place with an enlarged meeting scheduled for July 13. “It is good for us; our membership now cuts across,” Mr Mohammed said.
