The National Caretaker and Extraordinary/Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday unfolded plans to begin the party’s membership registration and revalidation from December 12, 2020, to January 9, 2021.
The Chairman of the committee and the Governor of Yobe State, Mr. Mala Buni, in a statement, urged members of the party to revalidate their membership in their wards.
He added that prospective members should seize the initiative to join the party.
Buni said: “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.
“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.”
He appealed to states, local governments and wards leaders to take all the necessary steps to ensure smooth and transparent registration exercise.
He assured members that the party will continue to provide an update of the process on a regular basis.
Ahead of the commencement of the membership drive, the party has fixed an emergency meeting of its National Executive Committee (NEC) for December 8.
Deputy National Publicity Secretary of the party, Mr. Yekini Nabena, in a statement on Sunday had said in line with COVID-19 public health protocols, the NEC meeting would be virtual.
