APC Embarks On Membership Drive In FCT
The All Progressives Congress, APC, on Friday inaugurated a 30-man area council committee for the Federal Capital Territory, FCT to ensure a smooth and successful membership registration exercise.
The chairman of the party in the Abuja, Adamu Sidi-Ali, who inaugurated the members in Gwagwalada, said the registration would begin February 3 and called for the co-operation and understanding of members of the FCT harmonisation committee to make the registration a success.
Sidi-Ali also urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to avail all political parties information on sensitive and non-sensitive materials for the 2015 elections.
“INEC should inform parties on when the contract for the supply of materials would be approved and the expected time of delivery,” he said.
He said this is because political parties’ participation and observation of INEC acquisition and distribution of materials will assist INEC in its journey to free and fair elections in 2015.
The chairman said APC had resolved to train and re-train its officials and members on the operations and activities of INEC so as to enhance free and fair elections in the FCT.
He charged the six area council interim executive bodies to inaugurate members at the ward and polling centre levels.
Five APC members were inaugurated from each area council in the FCT.
