APC disclaim rumour, says Membership Exercise On Course, Commences As Scheduled


The ruling All Pogressives Congress has described as fake and mischievous stories making the rounds that it has postponed its membership registration and revalidation exercise. 

According to a statement signed by Sen. John J. Akpan Udoedeghe Ph.D., National Secretary of Caretaker/ Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, "The APC membership registration, revalidation and update exercise remains on course and commences as scheduled in the attached timetable."

The statement reads in part: "As earlier announced, the CECPC has approved the constitution of State Membership Registration Committees for the Party's nationwide membership registration, revalidation and update exercise. This will be followed by a train-the-trainer workshop."

The party had within the week released its timetable and schedule of activities for the exercise. Following the schedule, the party leadership would between Monday and Wednesday constituted and inaugurate the State Membership Registration Committees while it will also embark on a "Train the trainers" exercise.

Thereafter, registration materials would be distributed while the actual registration of members would commence on Tuesday, 2nd February.

Similarly, a party chieftain and a governorship aspirant in the last general election in Cross River State, Prof. Eyo Etim Nyong had issued a stament calling on Cross Riverians as well as party faithfuls to register and the APC or revalidate their membership with the party. 

Nyong who said the party is repositioning itself to take over power in the state come 2023, called on all party members to ensure the process is smooth without rancor.
