The Peoples Democratic Party has attributed the extension of the ongoing registration exercise of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to fight within the ranks of the ruling party.
APC commenced its revalidation/registration exercise on February 9 and was expected to round it off on the 23rd of the same month but adjourned it for three weeks.
But PDP in a statement its National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan released put the extension down to crisis rocking the party (APC).
It reads in part, “Its three weeks extension will not change the public rejection that greeted the exercise and the APC as a party.
“Our party is already aware of the confusion in the APC after a genuine report from the field indicated a huge reduction in APC membership profile, given that more than half of its members across the federation refused to revalidate their membership while most regular Nigerians who they approached, responded with vehement apathy.
“Nigerians are also aware of the bitter disagreement among desperate APC power mongers from Kogi, Lagos and Kaduna states over allocation of membership figures as well as location for final compilation of APC fictitious membership inventory.
“The public now knows why the APC desperately sidestepped its original membership register, in the fraudulent exercise, as revealed by the recent outburst of the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed.
“It is indeed instructive that Nigerians have rejected the APC despite being lured with money in Taraba, Kogi, Imo, Kaduna and other states; despite the threats in Kano as well as attempt at night registration in Enugu and some other states.”
