Nigeria’s ruling party , APC, which is
enmeshed in crisis across many states, will
soon commence the registration of new
members across Nigeria, an official said Tuesday.
Mala Buni, the Yobe State governor and head of the party’s
national caretaker committee, said this in Abuja after meeting
with President Muhammadu Buhari.
Mr Buni said the president approved the registration of new
members.
He said the approval is in accordance with Section 9.4 of the
APC Constitution which states that “A Register of members
shall be compiled and maintained at the Ward Level and be
transmitted to the Secretariat of the Party at the Local
Government Area, which shall transmit a copy to the State
Headquarters, National Secretariat. Provided that the Party
shall update its membership records every six months and
remit updated copies to appropriate Secretariats. Thereafter,
it shall be the responsibility of a member to ensure that his or
her name is duly entered in the Ward Register.”
Mr Buni also said only the National Executive Committee of
the APC could authorise an extension of his committee’s six
months mandate.
He, however, could not say when the convention of the party,
which his committee was mandated to organise, would hold.
Mr Buni said his committee has resolved many of the crisis
rocking the state chapters of the party and had attracted some
members who left the party earlier including former House of
Represenrtatives Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, and a former
senator, Bernabas Gemade.
