The Committee also told members who have not registered or yet to be revalidated to feel free to buy nomination forms to contest for any of the party’s elective offices in the forthcoming congresses of the party.
The decision for the extension in the affected states was contained in a statement by the CECPC Secretary, Senator John James Akpanudoehede in Abuja.

Akpanudoehede said the extension followed the recommendation of the party’s Membership Registration Appeals Committee.
The statement reads: “Following the recommendation of the Membership Registration Appeals Committee, the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has approved the continuation of the Party’s membership registration, revalidation and register update exercise in Imo, Kwara, Ogun, and Rivers states.
“With this approval, the membership registration, revalidation, and register update exercise in the four states will continue for two weeks.
“Those who have not been registered in these States can purchase forms for congresses, party office elections, and conventions. For congresses in Rivers State, all those who have purchased forms in the past will be allowed to participate in the congresses on the presentation of the bank teller as proof of payment.”
The Secretary assured party members that registration materials have been adequately deployed to the listed states and warned that “any attempt to deprive intending registrants will be dealt with accordingly in line with the provisions of the APC constitution and guidelines for the exercise.
“All Nigerians who are desirous of joining the progressive fold are welcome to take advantage of this window and register as members of the APC.”
The party appreciated those who had earlier registered and revalidated their membership ion, across the country.
He called on those wishing to take advantage of the window to do so in in line with COVID-19 public health protocols.
