The All Progressive Congress (APC), has extended it’s nationwide membership registration and revalidation exercise across the 36 states of the federation.
This extension will shift the end of the exercise to Wednesday 31st March, 2021.
According to a statement by the National Secretary Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) APC, Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, on Sunday “The development is responsible for the shortage of registration materials recorded in many states across the country and thereby warranting an extension of the exercise to give every interested Nigerian the opportunity to officially identify with the ruling party, the APC”.
“We have received a nationwide acknowledgement of the increasing popularity of the APC, and most especially in states that are being governed by the opposition party.
“Biases in some sections might have made attempts to rubbish the good works of the President Muhammadu Buhari Administration, but the strong, impressive response of the public in the ongoing registration exercise has spoken the true minds of Nigerians and has put paid to the false narratives of party’s critics, cynics and the opposition.
“In response to the demands across the states for an extension to allow accommodation of all prospective members, the Party has therefore extended the nationwide membership registration exercise by a period of three (3) weeks.
“Additional disbursement of registration materials to meet up with the demands reported in most states has however commenced and will continue until the material needs of all the affected states are adequately met,” the statement reads in part.
