Niger State Governor, Abubakar Sani Bello has said he believes the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State is intact and will grow bigger.
Sani Bello stated this on Thursday at the National Secretariat of the party after himself and National Secretary of the Party’s Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Sen. John Akpanudoedehe met with Delta State stakeholders to resolve issues with the registration exercise in the state.
Bello is the Chairman of the National Committee for the APC ongoing membership registration, revalidation and update exercise.
He said, “It is not unusual in a political process that you have differences, opinions and what have you. So, Delta state is a very important state for us in the South South and we have been able to agree on workable methods to move the party forward. So I hope that going forward we wont have to come here from Delta state. They should be able to resolve their issues back home.
“I believe APC in Delta state is intact. I also believe APC in Delta state will grow bigger. So I will like to appreciate and thank the stakeholders from Delta state for their contributions to this meeting. We had a very fruitful meeting and by God’s grace, the issues have been resolved once and for all.”
On the general assessment of nationwide membership registration exercise, the Niger governor noted that the registration was moving well.
He said, “The registration is going on well. I was in Ogun State. I have been receiving reports from other zones. And, the major complaints is that the 100 forms per units is too small. But, I have made a complain to the national headquarters and more materials will be provided for the local governments or units that need more materials.
“So, basically nobody will be left behind for any struggle or any problem. Even after two weeks when we are done, we will continue.”
In attendance at the stakeholders meeting were national membership registration committee members; Hon. Stella Okotete, Barr. Ismail Ahmed and Delta APC stakeholders: Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo; Great Ovedje Ogboru; Olorogun O’tega Emerhor; Delta APC Caretaker Chairman, Prophet Jones Erue, among others.
