The Secretary to the umpire Abdullahi A. Kaugama disclosed this few hours ago in Abuja while addressing news men on how the new party was registered.

"On considering the application, the Commission found that the applicant-parties have met all statutory requirements for the merger, and has accordingly granted their request", the Secretary said .

The press statement further shows that the Commission has approved the withdrawal of the individual certificates of the applicant-parties, and the issuance of a single certificate to the All Progressives Congress.
