Kogi state governor and Chairman Women and Youth Sensitization and Mobilization Committee of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Yahaya Bello has asked Nigerians to join the party by participating in the membership registration and revalidation exercise billed to commence on Monday in order to make a change.

“We cannot sit idle and continue to lament about the policies of government at all levels. We cannot ask for positive change at all levels until we are part of the change that we so desire.
“To aspire for any elective position in this country, the Constitution requires that you must belong to a political party, and APC is the best political party in this country.
“I am appealing to women, youths and Persons Living With Disabilities (PLWDs) to join the APC. That is the only way you can have a voice; that is the only way you can make a change.
“Politics is too important to be left in the hands of politicians alone. Professional bodies, artisans, farmers, women, youths should come on board and participate actively. This is a golden opportunity,” he added.
