Meanwhile, the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, has said that access should be given to members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), willing to join the APC in the ongoing membership registration exercise of the ruling party.
Omo-Agege made the comment on Tuesday, February 2 in his country home in Orogun, Ughelli North local government area of Delta state.
According to him, the essence of the exercise is to rejuvenate the party in preparation for future elections hence the need to get more members into the APC fold.
He further counselled APC chieftains in Delta state and beyond not to discriminate against anyone either within or outside the party during the exercise.
Recall Legit.ng had reported that President Muhammadu Buhari on Saturday, January 30, revalidated his APC membership status at his Sarkin Yara polling unit in Daura, Katsina state.
The president was accompanied to the venue by some APC governors, the president of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, and the party's national leaders.
