APC Urge Leaders to Ensure Smooth Membership Revalidation and Registration Exercise

The Lagos state caretaker executives of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, have been charged to ensure rancor-free, smooth Membership Revalidation and Registration Exercise to achieve success in the interest of the party.

The charge was given by the Chairman of the seven-man state supervisory committee of the party on Monday at the Lagos State party Secretariat in Acme, Ikeja.

The Chairman, Dr. Mohammed Bashir, who spoke at the stakeholders’ meeting and train-the-trainers exercise, noted that the practice should be a tradition that should be done at a six-month interval; this will be in line with the party’s constitution.

He said if the party stakeholders do the right thing, APC will become a leading part of the country and Africa. The exercise he noted was performed to earn membership revalidation and also get new members registered.

According to Bashir, “I urge all of us as stakeholders and party leaders to ensure we do the right thing for this exercise to succeed. We have no reason to fail in Lagos State.

“I want to employ all of us as stakeholders to ensure that whatever is required to be done to ensure the success of this critical exercise is being done.

“I also urge all of us to ensure that you give us the necessary support and cooperation to ensure that we succeed in moving APC forward from your end as stakeholders.

“Without you, the committee at this level cannot succeed just like without the committee; this exercise will not also happen. We are going to have a symbiotic relationship.

“We will work with you hand in hand without ceding our responsibilities, but we will play things according to the rules and dictates of the exercise.

“We are not ready to hide anything from the stakeholders.”
He consequently advised all the party leaders that would be saddled with one responsibility or the other to see it as a trust to do the process according to laid down rules.

According to him, “whoever wants to join the party should be allowed and be assisted irrespective of gender, tribe or ethnicity.”

“We will ensure due process is followed during the exercise because the interest of the party supersedes the part of an individual.

“APC has its root from Lagos, and we will treat all stakeholders equally and fairly. The rules and guidelines will be dictated by this registration committee, and we will need the stakeholders to guide us in the various wards and local governments “, Bashir added.
