The All Progressive Congress (APC), has continued to put its foot down against it members who would attempt to hijack the forthcoming registration and revalidation exercise that will commence in February.
The Governor of Niger State and Chairman National Committee of registration, Abdullahi Bello, reinterated the stern warning during the inuaguration of the state committees which held on Wednesday in Abuja.
“We should also note that commandeering or theft or hijacking registration materials will not be tolerated you should also note that domination of registration process by an individual or group will also not be accepted”
Recall that the interim Chairman, Governor of Yobe State, Mala Buni, issued the warning during the inauguration of the national committee.
Bello, in his remarks said “Please note the last exercise was done in 2014 and since then we have members that have lost their life, may their souls rest in perfect peace.We have very few members that have left the party,we have many many members that have joined the party, we have young boys and girls who have turned 18 in between 2014 and today and we believe that they should be given the opportunity to register as members of our great party the APC.
Similarly, the Governor of Kano State, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, speaking to Newsmen said “Considering how people are eager to go for this registration because so many new entrants are in the party now but without registration.”
“Also few ones that had left, their names are not been deleted and there are many young men whose names have reached for them to be registered anf they would be registered. So, I believe we are going to have a very effective and efficient registration process and we will end up with very high member that are registered.”Ganduje said,
Also speaking exclusively to NewsDirect, Senator Zwingina Jonathan, he said “the membership drive is going to test the size of the party and give us the idea of what numbers we have, so that we can plan properly for the various congresses coming up and even for the national election itself. other parties can copy from us.”
