APC extends membership registration by two days

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has extended its ongoing nationwide membership registration by two days.

The exercise was billed to end on Monday, 10th February 2014, but it will now run until Wednesday,  February 12th 2014.

According to the Interim National Publicity Secretary of the party, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the extension is to accommodate the millions of Nigerians who have expressed interest in registering but have so far been unable to.

“While we are aware that the good people of Nigeria have accepted our party, the APC, as the agent of the much-needed change that our country desperately needs at this time, we have apparently under-estimated the number of those who are eager and willing to participate actively in the change process by joining the APC”, Lai wrote in a statement released in Lagos on Sunday.

Even with one day to go in the original registration schedule, we have exceeded the number of members we set out to register, and many more have reached out to us to give them the opportunity to join the APC train of change, hence our decision to extend the registration”.

APC claimed knowledge of efforts by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to sabotage the registration process in Abia, Delta, Gombe and Rivers States, but expressed its determination to prevent the disenfranchisement of people of the affected states, and urged all interested citizens who are yet to register to utilize the opportunity offered by the extension to do so.
