The National Chairman of the African Democratic Party (ADC), Ralph Nwosu, received Mr Gboyega yesterday at a press conference in Abeokuta said that the fortunes of the party had improved since May when the Coalition for Nigerian Movement (CNM) adopted it as a platform.
Mr Nwosu said the party had been “a small, road-side and a corner-shop party” until it was adopted by the CNM. The ADC chairman said that the pioneer members faced a lot of difficulties in building the party since 2006 when it was formed.
“In those days, we were begging people to come and join and be party executives,” he said. He, however, noted that the fortunes of the party had since changed with the development, adding that “it is now a force to be reckoned with.’’
Nwosu said that the party was poised to build a continental brand through the provision of a role-modelling leadership.
Mr Isiaka while giving his reasons for the PDP said he left due to the intractable crisis within the Ogun chapter of the party.
He also described the ADC as a party whose philosophy is devoid of retrogressive politics, adding that “ADC believes in human capital development and dignity of citizens.’’
I have received the inspiration of God and also extensively consulted my political associates, friends, supporters, important stakeholders, well-wishers, voices in the streets and my immediate family.
“I hereby formally announce and declare my membership of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) effective from June 1,2018,” he said.
