Nigeria’s governing party, the All Progressives Congress, APC says it will triple its membership before the country’s 2023 general election.
The Governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello stated this at the inauguration of the Women and Youth Sensitisation and Mobilisation Committee for the APC’s membership registration and revalidation exercise at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
Governor Bello who is the chairman of the committee promised that the committee would move to the field immediately to start work.
He, therefore, called on women and youths to take advantage of the APC membership registration adding that the future of youths and women is better in the APC.
According to Governor Bello, APC will continue to win elections in the country and stand as a democratic model for other nations.
“The APC will continue to win every election in this country, by the time we are done with the registration of new members and revalidation of existing ones in the country.
“The APC will not just be the largest political party in Africa, but we are going to call on even the developed nations to come and learn from APC in Nigeria.
“We shall even teach some of our brothers who have just concluded elections that were rancorous,” he said.
While inaugurating the committee, the chairman of the APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee and Governor of Yobe state, Mai Mala Buni said that party was putting in place some strategic measures to properly reposition it ahead of 2023 General Election.
“We are also embarking on this critical measure to breathe a new life into the party.
“The Sensitisation and Mobilisation committee had a crucial and critical role to play in the membership registration and revalidation exercise which will commence soon,” Buni explained.
Governor Buni noted that members of the committee were expected to mount rigorous sensitisation campaign to effectively mobilise every member of the party especially women and youth to either revalidate their membership or register afresh.
“You are enjoined to work as a team to achieve the desired goal with ease and within the expected time frame.
“The committee is hereby advised to liaise with all stakeholders in all the states to carry everyone on board for an all-inclusive programme,” he said.
The committee, which has Governor Dapo Abiodun of Ogun state as its Vice Chairman, also has the APC Director of Organisation, Prof. Ussiju Medaner, as its secretary.
