APC Extends Nationwide Membership Registration.
This is happening for the second time in two months. The party, in a statement by its interim National Secretary, John Akpanudoedehe, said the exercise had been extended for another three weeks, starting from Thursday April 1, 2021.
The exercise, which began in January, was originally scheduled to end on March 8, but was extended to end on March 31 due to the hitches in some of its state chapters.
It was initially slated to begin December 12, 2020 but was abruptly postponed till January 2021 by the party’s leaderships due to some factors peculiar to the period that may have encumber maximum participation of its members.
Giving reasons for the latest extension, Mr Akpanudoedehe said there had been requests from members of the party for an extension of time to “capture Nigerians who are still desirous of joining the fold of the progressives.”
He added that the interim administration of the party was doing all it could to ensure the conclusion of the exercise and other activities before its extended tenure ends.
“The Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) under the leadership of His Excellency, Hon. Mai Mala Buni had done everything possible to keep to the earlier timeline, however it has become imperative to extend the duration of this very important party activity.
“Consequently, the CECPC has approved the recommendation of the National Committee for the Membership Registration, Revalidation and Update to extend the duration of the exercise for three weeks,” he said.
