Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC has postponed its membership registration, update and revalidation to second week of January, 2021.
The APC National Chairman, Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni stated this in a press briefing at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
The membership registration exercise was earlier scheduled for December 12, 2020.
The Secretary of the Caretaker Committee, Senator James Akpanudoedehe who spoke on behalf of the chairman said the postponement was due to several factors.
“On account of several factors however, including the fast-approaching Christmas and End of Year celebrations; as well as the interest of our Christian members; and the objective of ensuring maximum participation, the CECPC has decided to shift the date of the Exercise to the second week of January 2021.
“The CECPC sincerely regrets any inconveniences that may arise out of the change in date but appeals for the understanding of the public, in the interest of preparing a solid foundation for a successful Exercise,”’ he said.
