Former Governor Murtala Nyako of Adamawa State has said the ongoing All Progressives Congress (APC) membership revalidation exercise is “disgust, unnecessary and not well thought of.”
He said the exercise is alien and not existing in any sane democratic clime.
Fielding questions from newsmen shortly after he revalidated his membership at his electoral ward in Mayo Belwa local government area of the state on Monday, he urged party members to work for the interest of the party since its national leadership has made it compulsory.
According to Nyako, “in an advance democratic country, such exercise is not applicable to card-carrying members.”
He urged APC faithful to give maximum support toward the success of the exercise since it has been forced on them by the national leadership of the party.
He charged them and the new entrants to register and validate their membership.
The former governor is optimistic that APC would reclaim the state in 2023.
It would be recalled that APC members and supporters have expressed divergent views on the ongoing revalidation exercise.
Recently, the pioneer national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Bisi Akande, frowned at the ongoing membership registration and revalidation exercise of the party, describing it as an unnecessary waste of resources.
