The Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi on Wednesday requested for more All Progressive Congress (APC)’s registration forms, stressing that President Muhammadu Buhari’s development strides in the South East has endeared many people to the party as such would need more forms to register them.
Umahi who defeated from Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to APC on November, 2020 made the request in Abuja on Wednesday when he visited the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), Mai Mala Buni, at the Party’s National Secretariat.
According to him, “Mr. President has actually helped the South East so much. And in every of my broadcast or media chats I had always enumerated what Mr. President has done for our people. And Ebonyi State is a shining example of the intervention by Mr. President.
“So the narrative is changing. But, when I went to Jigawa State and saw what they are doing like Yobe, Kebbi and other APC governors, I shouted that we are so much under-reported. Because the only way evil can thrive is for good men to keep quiet
“South East is very appreciative of the efforts of Mr. President in the development of South East. Everybody is interested in the APC membership registration, revalidation and update exercise. We want the Chairman of the party to take note of this.
However, while addressing Journalists after the meeting with the CECPC National Chairman, Governor Umahi described as “world class” the quality of the sensitization, mobilisation and organisation of the ongoing APC membership registration, revalidation and update exercise.
“You know since I joined the party in November, I have not visited the party’s National Secretariat. And so the Chairman afforded me the opportunity while he is around to visit. So, I visited not just because I am visiting first, but to also appreciate the beautiful work the Chairman of the party, my dear brother and colleague, Governor of Yobe state is doing for our party, making it digital.
“The ongoing registration, arrangements and logistics and the intentions are very wonderful. It is first class because I have never seen it in any party administration. So it is important I come to commend him and to also commend the staff who are working with him. This is essentially the reason why I have come.
“I complained to him that the hundreds of forms at the polling units is a far cry from what we expected. Everybody in the South East wants to belong to the APC,” Umahi said.
