APC Membership Registration, Revalidation: An Indefensible Aberration, Waste of Resources – Chief Bisi Akande

The pioneer interim National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Chief Bisi Akande has described the ongoing the party’s membership registration and revalidation as a sheer waste of resources in the wake of the nation’s economic reality.

He considered the decision of the party to embark on the ongoing APC membership registration “within less than a decade after the original register as an indefensible aberration leading to certain ugly perceptions”.

The former governor of Osun State was speaking in Ila-orangun, the headquarters of Ila local government area of Osun State, his home town where the APC membership registration and revalidation committee flag off the exercise.

Justifying why he faulted the decision to conduct the exercise, Chief Akande said “APC, …might be lacking comprehension and matrix of the modern day technology. The second major perception is that APC leadership might be wasteful and unappreciative of the proper use of money in a kind of scanty economy in which Nigeria now finds itself”.

“These seeming ugly perceptions put into abeyance the applause of the two national election successes that the original APC register enjoyed since its completion on 15th February, 2014 and the over one billion Naira of 2014’s value that the original register cost when APC had no money of its own” Chief Akande said.

Chief Akande took the advantage of the event to also expressed reservation for having a caretaker committee for APC.

He said “in normal circumstances, a Caretaker Executive Committee for a political party is an abnormality. If not carefully controlled and expeditiously managed, most aberrant authorities end up in contempt and disgrace.

He urge the APC Caretaker Executive Committee “to resist all temptations of sit-tight syndromes that usually characterized most handpicked authorities in most underdeveloped countries of the world”.

“I want to emphasize and warn that the next national election that would elect a successor to President Muhammadu Buhari is going to be the most important test of the ongoing APC membership registrations and whatever structure being envisaged to be imposed on it”.

“It is my advice and prayer therefore, that every sense of responsibility should be selflessly employed to make these efforts ultimately result in success for our APC” he stated.
