APC to Commence Membership Registration Dec 12

The Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee, CECPC, of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has announced the commencement of the party membership registration and revalidation for December 12.

Chairman of the Caretaker Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni in a statement in Abuja on Monday said the date for the exercise was arrived at after wide consultations with stakeholders including President Muhammadu Buhari.

The four weeks exercise which will take place simultaneously in all the wards in the 36 States and the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, is to end on January 9, 2021.

The statement reads: “The APC National Caretaker Extraordinary/Convention Planning Committee has concluded arrangements for the commencement of membership registration and revalidation. 
"Having consulted stakeholders, including His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, the APC membership registration and revalidation is scheduled to hold from Saturday, December 12, 2020 to Saturday, January 9, 2021.

“All our members are hereby invited to revalidate their membership in their wards. 
"Similarly, prospective members are also invited to take advantage of the membership registration process to join our party. 
"The membership registration and revalidation will take place simultaneously in every Ward in the country. 
"The process of distributing the membership registration and revalidation materials to all the States, Local Governments and Wards will be concluded before December 12, 2020.”

The registration exercise has pitched the caretaker committee against some stakeholders in the party. 
They argued that the conduct of the registration exercise was not part of the core mandate of the committee; rather it was saddled with the reconciliation of all aggrieved members and to conduct the National Convention for the election of new National Working Committee (NWC) members of the party.
The development has foreclosed the possibility of the National Convention of the party holding this year as directed by the emergency National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of June 25 which inaugurated the 13-man Caretaker Committee with the mandate to conduct the convention within 6 months.
