Factual Reportage


The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has declared that no non registered member of the party would be further considered for appointment by the ruling party

National chairman of the party, Abdulahi Umar, Ganduje who made the declaration while flagging off the e registration exercise training off party members in Abuja, said only those whose names appear on the digital register of the party would be eligible for consideration for future political appointments.

The APC on Wednesday, in it’s “Train the trainers” exercise picked 109 participants – three each from the 36 states and one participant from FCT for the training ahead of its membership e-registration exercise of the party.

The former Kano state governor stated further that the party will do away with the manually computed register, even as he noted that only those whose names appear on the digital register shall be deemed to be true and faithful members of the party.

He therefore urged Nigerians to take advantage of the planned exercises to become members of the APC, adding that the process will not only drive the planning, decision-making and projection process, but will serve as the basis of reference for any member of our party seeking appointment at any level or desiring to contest an election.

He however said that both existing and intending members are expected to provide their biometric data which must tally with the details captured in the National Identity Number (NIN).

He said; “The APC and portal on which the prospective trainees from the Thirty-Six (36) States and FCT, Abuja are expected to use will soon be reactivated so that the existing and new members can go online to register and join our Party from any part of the world.

“Each person is expected to provide his or her biometric data which must tally with the details captured in the National Identity Number (NIN).”

The chairman then appealed to the Minister of Communication, Innovation and Digital Economy, Dr. Bosun Tijani and his counterpart in the Ministry of Innovation, Science and Technology, Chief Uche Nnaji to support the party by providing technical assistance that will enhance the success of the party’s membership e-registration exercise.

“May I therefore appeal to our Honourable Ministers who are basically stakeholders on this project to kindly provide us with technical assistance towards achieving these laudable objectives.

“For our trainees, I will also like to appeal to you to please ensure that you learn from this programme so that you go back to your respective states and impart the same knowledge to those who will be engaged in this exercise. I ust say this exercise is very important to us, therefore we must strive to succeed.”

Earlier, the National Organising Secretary, Alhaji Suliaman Arugungu,said the take-off of the exercise has silenced the doubting Thomases insisting the leadership of the party was committed to the success of the exercise.

Arguing, who was represented by his deputy, Nzeh Chidi Duru, said; “I am well aware that not a few people expressed their opinions on the impossibility of translating the vision of a digital membership register for a political party in our country because of the peculiar nature, and technology limitations of the rank and file of politicians across the country.

“But the National Chairman refused to be daunted or discouraged as he remained focused on making his dream of digitalisation of our great party membership register, come to pass.”

The project coordinator, Samuel Adedapo Adedoyin described the Members Registration Portal as a comprehensive digital solution designed to streamline and enhance the process of member registration, management, and engagement for organizations.

He said: “This platform addresses the inefficiencies and limitations of traditional paper-based or fragmented digital registration systems, providing a unified and user-friendly interface for both members and administrators.”
