The All Progressives Congress (APC) has extended its nationwide membership registration by two days to accommodate the millions of Nigerians who have turned out to register but could not yet do so.
In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday by its Interim National Publicity Secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, the party said the registration would now end on Wednesday, February 12, instead of Monday, February 10.
”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.
”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,” it said.
APC said it is also not unaware of the efforts by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to sabotage the registration process in Abia, Delta, Gombe and Rivers, among others, hence the need to ensure that the people of the affected states are not disenfranchised.
The party urged all interested citizens who are yet to register to utilize the opportunity offered by the extension to do so.
