There was a delay at the beginning of the exercise in the state
The All Progressives Congress, APC, Borno chapter, on Friday said the party would consider the extension of the ongoing membership registration to ensure wide coverage in the state.
The Interim Chairman of the party, Kaka Yale, said this while addressing journalists in Maiduguri.
Mr. Yale said the extension might be necessitated by the delay in the beginning of the exercise in the state.
He, however, said that the exercise was taking place in spite of the delay.
“This is mainly due to late inauguration of the state interim management committee and the training of the registration officials,” he said.
“Actually, we might be forced to seek for an extension from the national headquarters to capture all our members, especially due to our peculiar situation.”
Mr. Yale said the prevailing security challenges in the state would not affect the conduct of the exercise.
Borno like Adamawa and Yobe is under emergency rule as soldiers battle to defeat the outlawed Boko Haram.
