There is a new political party in Nigeria and the name is Democratic Peoples Congress.

The party has just been registered by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

The electoral body says the new party with the acronym DPC was approved at its last meeting.

The commission also approved the party’s constitution, manifesto, logo and flag as well as the list of its national executive officers.

INEC, however, promised that the Certificate of Registration would be issued to the new party in due course.

The new party brings the number of registered political parties in Nigeria to 29.
