APC begins membership registration in November
The All Progressives Congress has will begin the registration of its members nationwide “tentatively” in November.
The Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, made this known during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja.
“We have to plan the logistics. If you do not plan well, you are not going to achieve anything. So, what right now, we are at the level of planning because the exercise will take place all over Nigeria,” he said.
According to him, the nationwide membership registration will strengthen the party and enable it to contest all future elections in the country.
Mohammed said the party had harmonised and finalised the process as well as create a format of its activities that would enable it to participate in future elections.
He told NAN that harmonisation of membership registration into the party would also be carried out from ward level to ensure that all its members were registered.
The APC spokesman added that the party had successfully conducted its primaries in Anambra State.
“It is on record that we are the only political party that had a transparent and direct primary. This simply means that our party loyalists voted from the ward to the state level,” he said.
