2.5Million APC Members Has Been Registered In Kano -Gov. Ganduje

Abdullahi Ganduje, governor of Kano, says the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state has so far registered 2.5 million people as members in the ongoing registration/revalidation exercise.

 

The exercise, which began about a month ago across the country, is part of the activities leading to the party’s national elective convention expected to be held in June.

In 2015, APC got 1.9 million votes in Kano at the presidential election.

Speaking at an APC stakeholders’ meeting in Kano, Ganduje said the party may register three or four million members by the end of the exercise.

The governor asked those in charge of registering members in the state not to marginalise anyone wishing to be a member of the party.

“We are all aware that the first set of 100 registers sent to polling units were exhausted. And the second set of 200 per polling units has also been exhausted,” Abba Anwar, chief press secretary to Ganduje, quoted the governor as saying.

“The registration is heading towards three or four million members in the state. Just look at the trend since we started.

“There should be no marginalisation. Register all those who wish to be registered as bonafide members of our great party and that is part of the wisdom why we have been succeeding as a party.”

Also speaking at the meeting, Murtala Garo, Kano commissioner of local government and chieftaincy affairs, said 100 bundles of registers given to the state by the party’s national secretariat have been used up.

“The state demanded additional 200 bundles per polling unit,” Garo said.

“The additional 200 membership cards per polling unit, have already been collected by members in almost 7,000 units.

“So there is a need for more from the national headquarters.”
