APC threatens newly formed APDA over “stolen” Star logo 

by on June 6, 2017
 

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 recycling corruption using a new political platform.

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 its 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.

    Me, or whatever you call your name, instead of you to present your comment which will represent your opinion in a constructive manner; you decided to put an abusive sentence, “Madness in action” I think this is very unfair and it portrays you as someone who has a very weak understanding about how highly educated and vibrant youths operate in a democratic society. I am not defending the youth, I am just making my comments the way I think best. Me, if you have a company of your own, and one unknown party stole your company’s logo, and you are lucky to see that some courageous and intelligent youths are trying to expose the party and even defend your company, would you call that “Madness in action” ? Next time, please make your comments with commonsense. God will be with you. Amen !

    Suzanne, To be polite is a strong virtue, while impoliteness is weakness. Anyone that aspires to be a good leader must learn not to be too emotional when making public comments. Thank you and good day !
