Apparently unsatisfied with the rate of turnout so far, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), on Sunday, extended the nationwide membership registration, revalidation and register exercise to Wednesday, March 31, 2021. The adjustment is just for a period of three (3) weeks.
The extension was announced in a notice signed by the party’s Director of Organisation, Prof. Ussiju Medaner Al-Mustapha.
He said “On behalf of the Chairman Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) His Excellency, Hon. Mai Mala Buni, I wish to use this opportunity to appreciate the good work of 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 acknowledgment of the increasing popularity of the All Progressive Congress, and most especially in states and regions that are being governed by the opposition party.
“In response to the demand across the states for an extension to allow accommodation of all prospective members, the party has therefore extended the nationwide membership exercise by a period of three (3) weeks.
“By this development, all Committee Members are hereby advised to remain in their places of assignment as 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 affected states are adequately met,” Al-Mustapha added.
