A Formidable Addition Joins ADC.

Professor Kingsley Chiedu Moghalu, former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and 2019 Presidential Candidate officially joined the African Democratic Congress today, 8th October, 2021.

The Press Conference on his declaration of membership held after a brief presentation of membership card which held at the party’s Global Campus and World Headquarters, in the presence of some Board of Trustee (BOT), National Working Committee (NWC), National Executive Council (NEC) and members of the party.

The Press Conference was very successful as all media platforms were represented: Television, Radio, Print and Blogs.

With this formidable addition, the party is set to continue projecting its diversity and inclusion values for youths, women and persons with disabilities.

Dr Favour Ayodele has joined the African Democratic Congress (ADC), to further pursue his aspirations of becoming Nigeria’s next President come 2023. Speaking at the public declaration of his membership which held in October at the ADC Global Campus and World Headquarters, the former 2019 Presidential Aspirant of the Young Progressive Party (YPP), said that it is time to ARISE, LIGHT NIGERIA.

Ayodele stated that under the ARISE, LIGHT NIGERIA agenda, Nigeria will be known for Agriculture, Resources, Investment, Security, Education and 24/7 Light (electricity), noting that with 24/7 electricity, Nigeria’s problems will reduce by 75%. He said, “Fellow Nigerians, we are better together. We are stronger together. Our diversity is our strength, not our weakness. What Nigeria needs right now is a Party with a political ideology that unites us, not divides us further: at home and in the diaspora. What Nigeria needs is a Party with a philosophy that empowers us, not degrade us or embarrass us. What Nigeria needs right now is a Party with an outlook that emboldens us to dream big as world class citizens, not one that makes us run for cover. What Nigeria needs is a Party with a platform that welcomes free expression of ideas as the way forward, not one that censors or threatens our lives for using our God-given voices or hopes to bribe us with “hush money”.
