The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has called for understanding and patience from Nigerians as it celebrates its 10th anniversary and as President Bola Tinubu unpacks his administration’s “Renewed Hope’’ agenda.
The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Felix Morka, made the call in a statement issued Monday in Abuja.
He congratulated APC members across the nation and assured that the “Renewed Hope’’ agenda would ensure peace, unity, security and prosperity.
“On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of our great party, the APC, we congratulate our members, stakeholders and leaders on this important milestone.
“We salute the founding visionaries of our party for their commitment to progressive values and principles.
“APC was a child of the imperative to pull our nation from the brink where it hung precariously by the maladministration of the then ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP),’’ Morka stated.
He recalled that the merger of the defunct Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN), the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and the All Nigeria Peoples Party (ANPP) paved the way for the founding of the APC.

Morka noted that from remarkable strides, the party had come a long way from its humble nascence and morphed into Africa’s largest political party of more than 40 million members.
This, he stated, the APC did through the enunciation of people-centred policies that had repositioned the country for holistic development in all areas of its national life.
“Significantly, in its first run, the party defeated the then incumbent PDP in 2015 to clinch the country’s presidency; won control of the National Assembly, and majority of the states of the federation.
“This feat was repeated at the 2019 and 2023 general elections with mandate to consolidate on its leadership, expand good governance and extend the frontiers of economic and social development of our dear nation.
“As the party celebrates this milestone, we applaud our compatriots for their invaluable support and resilience these past years,’’ the APC scribe stated.
Morka also assured that the APC would continue with its determined effort to tackle poverty, insecurity, systemic corruption, and expand access to economic opportunities and improved living standards for all Nigerians.
