APC to Embark on Massive Membership Drive - Duhu
The newly registered All Progressives Congress (APC) has concluded plans to embark on massive membership drive and enlightenment, Alhaji Umar Duhu, the National Vice Chairman, North East, has said.
Duhu told newsmen on Thursday in Yola that the party, ``which is the much awaited platform and alternative for selfless service, wants its presence to be felt at all levels''.
``You know, Nigerians were so enthusiastic about APC being registered; so we have to match our words with actions by reaching out to them.
``We want to establish structures across the country beyond ward level. We want to be the first party to have structures at unit level,” Duhu said.
Duhu, a former State Chairman of defunct ANPP in Adamawa, said that ANPP recently received about 300,000 new members in the state, ``who are now automatic members of APC''.
He said the party was confident of its chances in the 2015 general elections.
Duhu said that the party was in talks with some governors, who are interested in becoming members of the APC.
``As at today, many governors are in talks with us. From the number I have now, we have at least 23 governors coming to APC.
``I am assuring the party members, particularly those that are just coming in, of equal opportunities,'' Duhu said.
