Oshiomhole faults APC membership revalidation exercise


The former National Chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, has faulted the ongoing revalidation exercise of party members.

He said exercise by the Interim Caretaker Committee runs contrary to the party’s constitution.

Oshiomhole made the remarks shortly after revalidating his membership of the party at Unit 1, ward 10, Iyamho, Etsako West Local Government of Edo State, on Wednesday.

“APC is governed by a constitution and not by man, the constitution only provides for registration and I registered as a member of the APC in 2014 under the Interim national chairman Chief Bisi Akande.

“There is nothing in the APC constitution that says a member shall revalidate or renew its membership so revalidation is strange to our constitution.

“I have only done this because I want peace to reign but in doing this, we have to be careful not to create constitutional breach,” Oshiomhole said.

Other APC chieftains including President Muhammadu Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osinbajo have also revalidated their membership of the ruling party.
