Senator John Akpanudoedehe, Secretary of the All Progressives Congress’s Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee, said on Monday that the party now has over 40 million registered members.
Akpanudoedehe made the remarks at the APC National Secretariat in Abuja, where the party’s National Chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni, was receiving some non-career ambassadors designate.
He said, “We are blessed to have focused and gentle Chairman. When he came on board, we lost ground.
“Under his leadership we have regained what we lost and gained more. We had a membership strength of 12 million.
“I want to inform you your Excellencies, under his leadership the APC has moved to about 40 something million today.
“Since the creation of this party, we have never enjoyed peace and tranquility that we are enjoying. He has brought in some kind of calmness.
“We are blessed to have him. He is accessible. He read your speech before you came and he granted everything you requested. That is the kind of chairman we have.”
