The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, has called for the cancellation of the ongoing membership registration and validation exercise of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State.

Mr. Mohammed said that the officials sent to the state to conduct the exercise violated the procedure set by the party. He revealed this in a press conference in his hometown, Oro, on Monday.

Specifically, he said the committee flouted the guidelines regarding the distribution of materials for the exercise.


“The guidelines are also clear on how registration materials are to be handed over and distributed. It says officials for the assignment are prohibited from handing over registration forms, other materials inclusive of registration data in a manner not prescribed by the exercise to unauthorized persons, and that the materials (forms, registers, and others) are to be distributed directly to the Registration Officers, and records of the distribution are to be captured and reported accordingly,” he said.

He called for the cancellation of the exercise, and said that there should be a process in place to ensure a “credible and fair exercise that will enjoy the support and confidence of all”.
