The Mai Buni-led Caretaker/Extra-Ordinary National Convention Planning Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Monday announced that its membership base across the country has reached a total of 40 million.
The Secretary of the committee, Senator John Akpanudoedehe disclosed this at the APC National Secretariat, in Abuja when the party received some non-career ambassadors designate.
Akpanudoedehe hailed the leadership of Buni, saying his tenure increased the APC’s membership strength from its initial 12 million to 40 million.
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.
Recall that the APC had only recently concluded a nationwide membership/revalidation exercise that held for nearly three months.
