The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has berated the All Progressives Congress (APC) membership registration, describing the extension of the exercise as a ‘flopped membership drive.’
The statement issued on Monday by PDP’s spokesman Kola Ologbondiyan was titled: “Extension won’t help your flopped membership drive, PDP mocks APC.
The ruling party on Sunday announced that the registration and revalidation exercise, initially billed to end on February 23 has now been extended by three weeks till March 31.
In the statement, the PDP said the three weeks extension will not change the “public rejection that greeted the exercise and the APC as a party.”
The PDP boasted: “Our party is already aware of the confusion in the APC after genuine report from the field indicated a huge reduction in APC membership profile, given that more than half of its members across the federation refused to revalidate their membership while most regular Nigerians who they approached, responded with vehement apathy.”
