Good day Ladies and gentlemen,
I am overwhelmed and overjoyed this hour to stand before you as the chairman of this great party ADC and to have JERRY CARES FOUNDATION to identifying with our mandates in bringing succour to the downtrodden, political awareness to Edo Youths and dividends of democracy to the people of Edo State and Nigeria in general. It is not a coincidence as a party to be chosen by JERRY CARES as channel to put smiles on some selected faces of Edo people.
WHO ARE WE?
African Democratic Congress (ADC) is made up of dedicated and energetic members determined to transform nigeria for the better and brighter future for every citizens of our dear country. The party was originally named “Alliance for Democratic Change” when it was formed in 2005, but renamed the African Democratic Congress by the time the party was registered with the Nigerian Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The African Democratic Congress outlines the details of the party and its workings. According to the constitution, the goal of the ADC is to be a “grass root” party, composed primarily of working-class and disadvantaged Nigerians.The constitution also outlines that membership of the party(ADC) is open to “every citizen of Nigeria irrespective of religion, ethnic group, place of birth, sex, social or economic status”, once they are over 18 years old, not an active public officer, and do not belong to any other political party in Nigeria (membership is extended to those who renounce other party affiliations). Simply put, ADC is all inclusive party!
Our mission is to consolidate Nigeria democracy beyond (flawed) elections, political rhetoric and theatrics, and usher in super power economy, just and resilient institutions, systems and processes for a more egalitarian society.
To reengineer a political party system that is free from domination by political elites, money bags and god-fathers, through transparency and accountability; as well as propagate inclusion and diversity of values for Women, Youths, Diaspora Network and Persons with Disabilities (PWDs).
In furtherance of our mission of intent, we are here today in partnership with JERRY CARES FOUNDATION(who have been in the business of providing humanitarian support all over the world) to give out some relief materials to the people of Edo state across the three senatorial district. Make no mistake, ADC is the new political order that have come to change the political narrative of Edo State and Nigeria in general. Hence our slogan “ARISE and SHINE NIGERIA” is apt! Because we believe in spite of the seemingly economic gloom brought about by the ruling party APC and PDP(in the past) Nigeria must RISE and SHINE again through emergence of African Democratic Congress victories in the future general election!
Our party is stronger today because we are building on a different platform away from the conventional politics played in Nigeria and forging positive solutions that include everyone. As enshrined in the ADC – DNA, we believe that every person in this nation should be treated with dignity and respect. We believe that equal right and substantive minimum wage is a right for all and that we should be rewarding the hard work of middle class families. We believe that the wealthy should be taxed and we should live in a corrupt free Nation.
We are promising the electorate that if we are given a chance, we will start rebuilding by protecting the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, running an open and transparent government, fund our Schools, Stop wage theft, support an independent anti – corruption agency and affordable healthcare for all amongst many.
Remember we have no moral justification to question the outcome of the game, when we fail in our participatory role of the process that determine the results
On a party to note, we’re dedicated to organizing a grassroots movement in every local government and wards powered by volunteers like you. get involved in your community by joining now!
LONG LIVE EDO STATE

LONG LIVE FED REP. OF NIGERIA.
Thank you and God bless.
ADC…..ARISE & SHINE!
