APC Membership Registration: Bisi Akande Calls Exercise Wasteful

By  | 

Founding National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande, has said the membership registration exercise being conducted by the party is an aberration.

Akande made the comments on Wednesday after he was registered by the delegation led by Senator Lawan Shuaib at his ward in Ila-Orangun, Osun State.

He said, “These seeming ugly perceptions put into abeyance the applause of the two national election successes that the original APC register enjoyed since its completion on 15th February 2014 and the over one billion Naira of 2014’s value that the original register cost when APC had no money of its own,” he said.

“Within this context, I see the present APC membership registration within less than a decade after the original register as an indefensible aberration leading to certain ugly perceptions.”

The former Osun State governor also called the Caretaker Executive Committee of the party an abnormality, adding that the Mai Mala Buni-led National Caretaker Committee must resist temptations of “sit-tight syndromes” which, according to him, is a feature of most underdeveloped countries of the world.

Akande also berated the Buhari-led administration, saying its use of state resources to fund the exercise is wasteful and unappreciative in light of the state of the economy.
