"The APC as a party started as a mixture of the ACN, ANPP, APGA, PDP, CPC. That is a mixture of various elements trying to make a compound.
“But unfortunately, up till now, the APC is still a ‘mixture’ and has not graduated to the next level to become a ‘compound. Those who read Chemistry know the difference between a ‘mixture’ and a ‘compound'."
