Nigerians don't trust APC, PDP and other political parties – Akpabio explains why


Senate President Godswill Akpabio cited lack of accountability and impunity as reasons why Nigerians do not trust political parties.

However, Akpabio noted that changing the parties' positions would help restore public trust and confidence.

The Senate President, who was represented by Anambra Central Senator Victor Umeh, spoke at an event organized by the Kukah Center in Abuja, asserting that political parties have contributed to strengthening policies and governance in Nigeria.

He said political parties had provided a platform for Nigerians to participate in the democratic process, noting that it would be remiss of Nigerians not to acknowledge the problems that had undermined the democratic culture of Nigerians.

“These issues have led to a decline in public trust and trust in political parties.

“It is disheartening to see people becoming disillusioned with the very institutions that are supposed to represent their interests and protect their democratic rights.”
