Lagos, Jan. 25, 2021 The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Lagos State on Sunday said that it might further decentralise its nationwide membership registration and validation from ward level to polling units to control crowd.
The Lagos State Caretaker Committee Chairman of APC, Alhaji Tunde Balogun, said this in Lagos.
He said that the official commencement of membership registration would be Feb. 2.
“The registration will take place in all the wards in Lagos State and possibly, we will inaugurate the Polling Unit Committee too, to take care of the polling units.
“If the wards are too crowded, we can go down to polling units and register,” Balogun said.
Balogun noted that the programme had been adjusted.
He said that what would start from Monday would be the inauguration of some committees for registration of members for each state.
According to him, that inauguration will take place in Abuja at the National Secretariat of APC between Monday and Wednesday.
“After that, members of the state committees that will come to different states to conduct the registration will be trained so they can train other people in the state.
“Then, come Feb. 2, the official registration will start across the whole states of Nigeria. We will have the committee members coming to each caretaker chairman of APC on how to go about the exercise.
“Before then, the registration forms must have been sent to Lagos by Jan. 28,” the chairman said.
He said that Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu had provided for logistics which might include provision of power generating plants and cameras for those who could not afford to pay for passport photographs.
