The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said it will record thrice its current membership when it begins the registration and re-validation of party members on January 25 across the country.

The Chairman of the party’s newly inaugurated Women, Youth and Physically Challenged Mobiliasation and Sensitisation Committee and Kogi State Governor Yahaya Bello stated this on Tuesday in Abuja.

Other members of the committee are: Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun (Vice Chairman) and the party’s Director of Organisation, Prof. Ussiju Medaner (Secretary).

Speaking after the inauguration of the committee, the governor assured the party leadership that his committee would mobilise Nigerians to join the ruling party during the registration.

He said: “I want to assure that we shall move to the field immediately. We are going to swing into action. We are going to liaise with every stakeholder within the party and across party lines.

“We are going to create serious awareness. We are going to educate Nigerian people about our great party. We are going to mobilise and we are going to have membership of this party tripped, if not quadrupled, by the grace of God.”

The governor, who hailed the party’s leadership for shaping it, maintained that at the end of the registration and re-validation, the APC will remain the party to beat in future elections.
