Following accusations of financial inducements characterizing the process of selection of candidates by political parties across the country, the African Democratic Congress, ADC, has vowed never to lower its standards for money-bag politicians to take over its party.
National Chairman of ADC, Chief Ralphs Okey Nwosu, stated this Wednesday at the party’s third Presidential Aspirants’ Forum themed “Leading Forward with Knowledge-driven Collegiate Presidency” held in Abuja.
Chief Nwosu made it clear that ADC would not lower its standards for money-bag politicians who are getting set to use their tactics against the mission of the party.
He used the platform to officially inform Nigerians about the party’s National Convention and Presidential Primaries holding in Ogun State, Abeokuta on the 8th June, 2022.
The ADC national chairman assured that the Convention would be made a clear precedence for Nigeria as ADC is poised to rescue the country from the elites who are neck bent on frustrating the electorates and the masses as a whole.
He appreciated the Presidential Aspirants for showing their nation building prowess and their willingness to work together as a team, unlike what the Nigerian Political structure is used to.
