The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to register the newly formed political association, the All Peoples Democratic Alliance.

APGA claims A-P-D-A, the acronym of the new group, shares some similarity with APGA.

The part believes these similarities could confuse his followers and voters during campaigns and elections.

National Chairman of APGA, Victor Oye, made the call in his message to mark his second year in office.

“I want to draw the attention of INEC once again to the plans to register All Peoples Democratic Alliance (APDA) whose acronym sounds like APGA.

“This is capable of confusing prospective voters in an election; therefore, INEC should not register the new party in view of our formal protest.

“It should do something urgently to avert the impending confusion,” he said.

Recalled that APGA was unveiled on Monday in Abuja by an active chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and media mogul,  Raymond Dokpesi‎.
