APC Extends Membership Registration, Revalidation

The All Progressive Congress on Sunday announced a shift in the date for the closing of the ongoing registration and Revalidation exercise across the country.
In a statement signed by the Secretary of the party’s Caretaker Committee Senator John Akpanudoedehe, the party said its overwhelming to see the turnout of new and intending members prompting the party to consider an extension.

See below the full text of the party's statement:


The all Progressives Congress (APC) Nationwide Membership Registration and register update exercise began on Tuesday 9th February,2021 across the 36 states of the federation.

The feedback across the states have been overwhelming and beyond projected success level; with a massive turnout of intending registrants beyond the expectation of the party.

This 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 of the APC.

On behalf of the National Chairman Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) His Excellency, Hon Mai Mala Buni, I wish to use this opportunity to appreciate the good works of His Excellency, Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State led Youth, Women Mobilisation and persons with disabilities' Sensitisation Committee, The National Registration, Revalidation Committee led by Governor Sanni Bello of Niger State, the states steering committees for the exercise and all party officials who have been both directly and indirectly involved in the exercise from the outset.

We have received a nationwide acknowledgement in 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 words 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 opposite.

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.

The extension will shift the end of the exercise to Wednesday 31st March, 2021.

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.

Finally, and again, our appreciation goes to all who have made this exercise successful up to date; and a broad welcome to all new members into the party.
