Membership Registration: APC Rolls Out Additional 24 Million Forms

By  | 

To ensure the smooth running of its ongoing membership and revalidation exercise and address the shortfall of the forms as complained by the states, the country’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress (APC) is set to release about 24 million additional membership registration forms to all the polling units nationwide.

The issuance of more registration forms, according to the Secretary Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Senator John James Akpanudoedehe was necessitated by nationwide response of eligible Nigerians who are willing to join the APC.

The party had earlier released 12 million registration forms at the take-off of the exercise to all the 119,973 polling units with each unit allotted with 100 registration forms.

“The response has been amazing. Both old and new members are trooping in their large numbers to revalidate their membership, while new ones are coming in for registration. Reports from the states showed that the 100 forms sent to each polling unit were grossly inadequate.

“Initially we produced 12 million registration forms and with reports from states on the on-going registration and revalidation exercise, the initial 100 forms were grossly inadequate, as more Nigerians are yearning to join our party.Yesterday, Tuesday we sent additional 200 registration forms to each of the polling units across the country,” Akpanudoedehe stated.
