Ahead of the forthcoming revalidation and registration exercise of the All Progressives Congress (APC), the Kaduna State Deputy Governor, Dr Hadiza Balarabe has tasked stakeholders on the success of the exercise.
Balarabe made the call on Saturday at the Southern Kaduna APC stakeholders engagement committee meeting, which held in Kafanchan.
She enjoined the stakeholders to make personal monetary contributions as the financial implications of the exercise cannot be left to state government alone.
“I want to call on every stakeholder to make sacrifices financially and otherwise towards the success of this important exercise that we have coming up.
“When you make personal financial commitments to things like that, it gives you a real sense of belonging.
“Government alone cannot be left to cover the cost of this all important assignment, so we must individually do our bit for this party that we love so much,” she added
According to her, the APC remains a great party with a great ideology, noting that the registration exercise will reposition it for even greater exploits.
Also speaking, Bala Bantex, the immediate past Deputy Gov. of Kaduna State, underscored the need for oneness and unity of purpose as the party seeks to make inroads into Southern Kaduna.
Bantex implored the leadership of the APC in the state to work out modalities of ensuring members are fully grounded in the ideology of the party.
In his remarks, the state APC Chairman, Sir Commodore Emmanuel Jekada, (rtd) disclosed that the registration and revalidation exercise will commence proper on Feb. 9.
Jekada noted that the state office had already taken delivery of all materials that will be used during the exercise and called for full participation of members.
Other stakeholders who spoke offered strategic recommendations on the way forward for the APC in the region and the state as a whole.
LEADERSHIP reports that that the meeting was attended by both past and present elected and appointed government officials from Southern Kaduna amongst other stakeholders.
