APC Membership Registration/Revalidation Not To Favour Anyone – Niger Governor

The National Chairman of the APC Revalidation and Membership Registration Committee and Governor of Niger State, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello yesterday said that the ongoing revalidation and registration of new membership by the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) is not designed to favour or work against anyone in particular.
Bello also give asssurance that the programme will be transparent and urges those interested to ensure they join the process.

Bello made this statement in his country home, Kontagora after revalidating his membership in his ward,

He added that  “In a Democratic process people should express their views but what I know is that this process is not to favour or work against anyone”.

Speaking against insinuations about the genuineness or otherwise of the exercise, Governor Bello said the APC’s National Executive Council (NEC) approved the exercise, adding that the conduct ‘can therefore not be illegal as some people are still doubts’.

The ongoing revalidation and registration of new members programme has become expedient in view of the fact that it was in 2014 that suc exercise was carried out hence the process has become expedient with movements in and out of the party by eligible voters.
“It is a right step to take, it is the best thing to do to have new entrants while old members will have to indicate that they are still within the fold. We want to grow the party, people make the party people want to join our party we cannot close our doors against them”.

President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that the party should be rebuilt from the grassroots level upwards, the Governor further explained. “That is why he supported the membership revalidation and new members registration exercise”.

While assuring of his preparedness to step in wherever there is problems as a result of the registration/revalidation exercise, Governor Bello said his committee will be on hand to resolve such problems, including where there is shortage of materials.
