The membership registration which began on February 5 was scheduled to end on the February 10
The All Progressives Congress, APC, has extended the period for its ongoing nationwide membership registration till February 12, the party announced Sunday.
The membership registration which began on Wednesday was scheduled to end on Monday, February 10.
But in a statement signed by the Interim National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said the extension was to accommodate many Nigerians who had turned out to register but could not do so.
”We have apparently underestimated the number of those who are eager and willing to participate actively in the change process by joining the APC,” Mr. Mohammed said in the statement. “Even with one day to go in the original registration schedule, we have exceeded the number of members we set out to register.”
The party said more Nigerians have requested the opportunity to join the APC and that it needed to ensure that those willing to register as members were allowed to do so.
It urged all interested citizens who had not registered to utilise the opportunity offered by the extension to do so.
