APC lacks authentic membership register says Buni

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) party has said it lacked authentic membership registration of its members nationwide.

Speaking at a meeting of APC Senate Caucus wednesday the party’s caretaker committee chairman Maimala Buni said since the membership registration exercise of 2013, the party has no authentic register in all the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Buni said some members who left the party in 2018 and joined the opposition party still have their names on the party’s register. 

He added that many others who joined the party from 2014 to date do not have their names in the register.

Buni said the revalidation of the party’s membership register has become imperative to expunge names of those who had left the party and include those who have joined the party from 2014 to date in compliance with Article 9:4 of the Party Constitution. 

He also disclosed that the caretaker committee has set up a high powered committee made up of eminent party leaders, legal practitioners and experts to study the reviewed Constitution and to make recommendations to the effect of the necessary amendments.

Tthe Chairman, APC caretaker committee, Governor Maimala Buni said the party’s reconciliation effort to settle aggrieved persons and factions has paid off, noting that the conflicts in most of the state chapters of the party have been settled.

Speaking at a meeting of APC Senate Caucus, Buni said the party now proudly paraded political heavy weights in various states who have either returned back to the party or freshly joined the party. 

He said the defection of Ebonyi State Governor, Dave Umahi and several legislators of the state assembly was great milestones in the party’s restoration process.

“Many others have indicated interests to either return or join the party. In fact, I want to assure you all that APC will soon shock Nigeria’s political space with massive and unprecedented defections ever witnessed in the political history of our great country, and by the grace of God, APC will undoubtedly remain Nigeria’s leading political party,” he added.
