In the event it loses its case against Ali Modu Sheriff’s group before the Supreme Court, it is believed members of Ahmed Makarfi faction will move en masse to APDA, which was unveiled at the Reiz Continental Hotel, Abuja by Chairman of DAAR Communication Chief Raymond Dokpesi and former national chairman of Labour Party Chief Dan Iwuanyanwu, among other proxies.

But less than 24hours after APDA’s launch, it is enmeshed in scandal.

AD in a statement released on Monday accused the party of stealing its(AD) logo.

The statement signed by one of the National Working Committee (NWC) members, Ismail Ayodele, said AD has called the attention of INEC to the association and the need not to register APDA as a political party.

The statement reads in part, ““We write to protest and strongly oppose the use of the logo launched today in Abuja by a new association known as Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) looking for INEC registration to become political party. Alliance for Democracy (AD) is not against your coming but we are strongly against you to snatch 95 per cent of our existing logo which has been in use from 1998 to date.”
