APC groups Petitions Buni to postpone registration exercise in Ebonyi council

By Chinwe Onwosi 

All Progressives Congress groups, in Ebonyi State, under the aegis of 2019 APC House of Assembly Aspirants and APC Stakeholders Forum, on Thursday, petitioned the Chairman, Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni, to as a matter of urgency put on hold, the party’s forthcoming registration/revalidation exercise in the Onicha Local Government Area of the state.

This is even as the groups said they rejected the appointment of non members of the party, as registration Committee members, coordinators and supervisors in the Onicha area, stressing that doing this, amounted to nullity.

The APC groups stated this in a letter addressed to Buni, signed by Chief Okorie Okorie (Chairman, 2019 APC House of Assembly Aspirants, Chairman) and Utobo Fortune (Secretary, APC Stakeholders Forum), a copy of which was made available to journalists, in Abakaliki, on Thursday.

The letter read in part, “Excellency Mr Chairman, we write on behalf of the concerned Old/Original Members, Concerned Stakeholders, LGA and Ward Executives of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Onicha LGA to call on you to direct for the immediate postponement of the Membership Registration/Revalidation Exercise in Onicha Local Government Area of Ebonyi State.

“That we reject the appointment of NON-APC MEMBERS as Registration Committee Members/Coordinator/Supervisors in Onicha LGA, her Wards and Pooling Units.

“That using people who are not officially registered APC members for the Membership Registration/ Revalidation Exercise of the party in Onicha LGA will amount to nullity.

“That on no account should the leadership of our dear party the APC allow Non Card Carrying Members of the Party to be saddled with the responsibility of either revalidating the membership of old members or registering new members as any action or duty assigned to and/or performed by them remains a void act and an illegality, which may hurt or affect the future fortunes of the party both in Onicha LGA and Ebonyi State in general.

“That, we the Foundation/Old Members of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Onicha Local Government Area will use every available legal means to stop the Non Card Carrying Members of our dear party from performing the function of Membership Registration/ Revalidation Exercise in Onicha LGA should the National Leadership of the party fail to address this matter urgently in order not to plunge the party into extinction in our Area.”
