Yobe State Governor and Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) caretaker committee, Mai Mala Buni, has said any attempt by leaders to hijack the party’s membership registration and revalidation exercise ahead of the 2023 general poll would attract sanctions.
Our correspondent reports that the party has not renewed its membership register since the initial registration exercise of 2014 despite the surge in its membership.
Inaugurating the membership and revalidation committee headed by Niger State Governor Abubakar Sani Bello at the party’s national secretariat in Abuja, on Wednesday, Buni said the party would not tolerate any form of sabotage of the process.
He said that the party had adequate backup materials to ensure a successful exercise, adding that no one would be disenfranchised.
He charged the committee to work as a team and contribute their quota to the success of the exercise.
“I am very sure that our figures in the register would surge by quadruples or even more, to further prove that APC is indeed Nigeria’s largest and leading political party,” he said.
Responding, Governor Bello said, “Our business is to grow our party not to limit people,” adding that the committee would take its assignment seriously.
