We won’t extend membership registration for Okorocha, others – Imo APC

All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo State yesterday ruled out the possibility of extending the ongoing nationwide registration of members.

APC started its two weeks extension of the exercise on July 14, to end on July 28.

Former Governor Rochas Okorocha and Senator Ifeanyi Araraume were among prominent APC members that did not register before the extension of the exercise on July 14.

The state Chairman of the party, Marcellinus Nlemigbo, told The Nation that the APC would not extend the registration ad ni finitum.

He said those who failed to meet the registration deadline in the state should consider themselves as not members of the party.

“If they fail to register after the deadline, it means they are not members of the party,” Nlemigbo said.

He expressed surprise that some people complained of difficulty in locating registration centres in the state.

Said he: ”President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Hope Uzodimma and my humble self went to our units in our council areas to register. So, whoever that does not register or could not locate registration centres in his location, deliberately does not want to register.

“I have volunteered to make myself available anytime Okorocha and others want to register by being at the registration centre to attend to them .The governor is also willing to do same to ensure peace and harmony in the party.”

Nemigbo dismissed insinuations in some quarters that the party cannot win election without Okorocha.

”We won many elections in the state without him, and we are going to win again with or without him. APC has better opportunity now, as many people have joined the party in Imo State,” he said.

APC announced the extension of membership registration and revalidation in Imo, Kwara, Ogun, and Rivers for another two weeks.
