Fools.

Why did you register them in the first place?

Did they meet the criteria for registering a political party?

okrote4real:


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC has deregistered 74 Political Parties.

The deregistration followed their poor performance in the 2019 general elections.

INEC chairman, Prof Mahmood Yakubu announced this during a press conference in Abuja today.

LEADERSHIP had reported on Tuesday of the plans by INEC to deregister the political parties that performed poorly in the last general elections.

The existing political parties now are: Accord, AA, AAC, ADC, ADP, APC, APG
A, APL, Labour Party, NNPP, NRM, PDP, PRP, SDP, YPP, Zenith Labour Party (ZLP) and Book party.

Details later...

Something they would have done before the 2019 general election. Having lots of Political Party is irrelevant in Nigeria.

Nigeria is not even ripe for democracy, talk more of countless political parties.
Re: INEC Deregisters 74 Political Parties by Mokason28: 4:28pm On Feb 06
And before 2023 it will register 740 new political parties. The joke is on both the @inecnigeria and the mushroom political parties proliferating here and there.

Meanwhile will they refund their registration money??

@inecnigeria that follows the general on Twitter you should know wat exactly to expect... Mstheeeew

Any purging with APC & PDP on the list is not massive.

These two parties are presently the problems of Nigeria.

It is like you just learnt that word. You're looking for how to use it even if it is out of context.

Were they parties in real life in the first place. They only existed to the extent that their logos were stamped on the ballot papers and each held an inec-issued paper with a name and logo on it declaring it as "registered". Outside this valueless piece of paper, nothing else to show that a party existed.
