Governor Abdullahi Ganduje of Kano State says the All Progressives Congress, APC, has so far registered about 2.5 million members in the ongoing membership registration/revalidation in the state.

This is contained in a statement by Abba Anwar, Chief Press Secretary to the governor on Monday in Kano.

Mr Anwar said that the governor disclosed this during the sixth APC stakeholders meeting in Kano.

“We are all aware that the first set of 100 registers sent to polling units were exhausted. And the second set of 200 per polling units has also been exhausted.

The governor also urged those in charge of the registration to ensure fairness.

“There should be no marginalisation. Register all those who wish to be registered as bonafide members of our great party and that is part of the wisdom why we have been succeeding as a party,” he said.

Murtala Garo, state’s Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, said the APC national headquarters gave the state 100 bundles of registers for each of the 8, 090 poling units in the state.

Mr Garo said all the bundles had been exhausted.
