Political Leanings And Ideology Of The Party:At ADC, it is about Intense and Intentional Leadership – an activity that identifies challenges, gets the people to see the realities in these challenges, collectively evolves adaptive or technical solutions to these problems with a view to ensuring Excellent living conditions for all Nigerian. Leadership is the keyword here that the ADC is going to be driven by, noting that moving a person from ‘Good to Great’ takes a process. Sadly, Nigeria has over the years adopted a culture of mediocrity occasioned by our ‘clan’ mentality or man-know-man syndrome. You have to know somebody somewhere for things to happen to or for you. Leadership must inspire all our activities henceforth, it may sound scary to some, who are used to doing things the old way but nobody should be afraid as everybody will be groomed and taught the new way of doing things. The better way.
