APC: Arrest Leaders Of Political Party

The All Progressives Congress, APC, Youths Renaissance has called for the arrest of the leaders of the newly floated political party, Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance, APDA, over the party’s logo.
APC Youth Renaissance observed that APDA’s logo was “stolen from Star Lager Beer, one of the popular brands owned by the Nigerian Breweries PLC.”
In a statement sent to DAILY POST by its National Secretary, Collins Edwin, the body wondered why a political party that seeks to take over the “reign of government ....
at the center could not think deeply and come out with a logo not registered by any company in Nigeria.”
The statement quoted Edwin as saying, “their action is a testament that they have nothing new to offer to Nigerians other than recycling corruption using new political platform.
“Therefore, as a front line youths wing of the ruling party, we believe that it is our duty to protect all Nigerians including their intellectual properties from any form of attack or encroachments.”
The youth arm of the ruling party also called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to urgently deregister the new party for breaching intellectual property law.
Edwin said, “To avoid facing the anger of the World Intellectual Property Organisation and other multilateral institutions like the World Trade Organisation which Nigeria is a member, we are calling on the Independent National Electoral Commission and the security organisations in Nigeria to as a matter of urgency deregister the new party as well as arrest it’s leaders for breaching the intellectual property laws of Nigeria.
