Are you interested in membership registration of the All Progressives Congress (APC)? Or simply, you desire to join the ruling party? If your answer is yes, then, this is the opportunity that you have been waiting for, as membership registration is ongoing in four states of the federation.
An Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the party has approved the continuation of membership registration and revalidation in four states thus – Imo, Kwara, Ogun, and Rivers.
The exercise will last two weeks.
The Committee also directed members that are yet to be registered or have not to revalidate their membership are free to purchase nomination forms and contest for any party elective offices in the forthcoming congresses of the party.
A statement by the CECPC Secretary, Senator John James Akpanudoehede in Abuja on Tuesday, said the extension followed the recommendation of the party’s Membership Registration Appeals Committee.
“Following the recommendation of the Membership Registration Appeals Committee, the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has approved the continuation of the Party’s membership registration, revalidation and register update exercise in Imo, Kwara, Ogun, and Rivers states.
“With this approval, the membership registration, revalidation, and register update exercise in the four states will continue for two weeks.
“Those who have not been registered in these States can purchase forms for congresses, party office elections, and conventions. For congresses in Rivers State, all those who have purchased forms in the past will be allowed to participate in the congresses on the presentation of the bank teller as proof of payment.”
“All Nigerians who are desirous of joining the progressive fold are welcome to take advantage of this window and register as members of the APC.”
According to the statement, registration materials have been adequately deployed to the listed states while “any attempt to deprive intending registrants will be dealt with accordingly in line with the provisions of the APC constitution and guidelines for the exercise”.
The APC also used the opportunity to appreciate Nigerians who had earlier responded to the membership registration exercise, while calling on others who had not done so, to avail themselves of the opportunity.
However, COVID-19 protocols must be observed by registrants, the party instructed.
