APC begins membership registration in Nov

By The Citizen

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that it would begin the registration of its members nationwide 'tentatively' in November.

The Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, made this known during an interview in Abuja.

'We have to plan the logistics, if you do not plan well you are not going to achieve anything.

'So what we are doing 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 that 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 said  that harmonisation of membership registration into the party would also be carried out from ward level to ensure that all its members are registered.

He said APC had successfully conducted its primaries in Anambra, noting that, 'it is on record that we are the only political party that has a transparent and direct primary.

'This simply means that our party loyalists voted from the ward to the state levels,' he said.

Muhammed expressed optimism that the party would excel in the forthcoming Nov. 16, governorship election in Anambra.

He urged Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the security agencies to discharge their responsibility credibly.

'We just hope that INEC would create a level playing ground, the security agencies will do the same, and violence to be curbed,' he said. (NAN)
