APC To Begin E-membership Registration Ganduje

In a bid to consolidate its membership strength, the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has concluded plans to embark on electronic registration of over 40 million members nationwide.

The National Chairman of the party, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje disclosed this when he played host to elected Deputy National Officers and National Executive Committee (NEC) members of the party at the National secretariat in Abuja.

He said the essence of electronic registration is to have the exact number of party members.

Disclosing the innovation, Ganduje said: “Another step that we have taken is that we are reviewing our registration electronically now. The work has already started, so you should be ready that all our members will be electronically registered so that we have an exact number physically”.

Former Governor Mai Mala Buni-led National Caretaker Committee of the party conducted a nationwide membership registration exercise in 2021 which brought over 40 million members into the party’s registration file.

The National Chairman however lamented that the outcome of the 2023 presidential election was not a true reflection of the number of registered party members.

“If you will recall, we had 41 million members, while after the presidential election, we had 8 million, What happened to the rest? So, we need to be digital and ensure that we are working with the correct data.”

He further said that the party has concluded plans to establish a National Institute of Democratic Studies that will help Nigerians shape their pattern of behaviour in alignment with democracy and progressive ideas.

Leader of the team and Deputy National Treasurer of the party, Hon. Omorode Osifo-Marshall congratulated Ganduje on his election as the 6th National Chairman of the party and pledged their support and loyalty to the new leadership of the party.
