APC Youths Renaissance has observed that the logo of the newly
registered political party, the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance
was stolen from Star Lager Beer, one of the popular brands owned by
the Nigerian Breweries PLC.
The group wondered why a political party that seeks to take over the
reign of government at the centre could not think deeply and come out
with a logo not registered by any company in Nigeria.
Hence, their action is a testament that they have nothing new to offer
to Nigerians other than recyling corruption using new political
Therefore, as a frontline youths wing of the ruling party, we believe
that it is our duty to protect all Nigerians including their
intellectual properties from any form of attack or encroachments.
Similarly, to avoid facing the anger of the World Intellectual
Property Organisation and other multilateral institutions like the
World Trade Organisation which Nigeria is a member, we are calling on
the Independent National Electoral Commission and the security
organisations in Nigeria to as a matter of urgency deregister the new
party as well as arrest it’s leaders for breaching the intellectual
property laws of Nigeria.
Failure to act within the stipulated time frame as enshrined in our
laws, we will be forced to seek redress in the court on behalf of the
Nigerian Breweries PLC.
Mr. Collins Edwin,
APC Youths Renaissance.
