The Caretaker/Extra-ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has fixed December 12, 2020 to January 9, 2021, as the date for the nationwide registration of new members.
This was made known in a statement titled, “Commencement of APC Membership Registration and Revalidation,” signed by Buni, in Abuja.
Recall that the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led committee had earlier gotten the approval of President Muhammadu Buhari to commence the registration.
In its statement released on Monday, the APC stated that all arrangements for the commencement of the exercise had been concluded.
The statement read in part, “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.
“All our members are hereby invited to revalidate their membership in their wards. Similarly, prospective members are also invited to take advantage of the membership registration process to join our party.
“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.”
The APC leadership called on party leaders at the state, local government and ward levels to take steps to ensure a smooth exercise.
