The All Progressives Alliance (APC), Abia State, says it is targeting a whopping 250,000 membership benchmark ahead of 2019 elections.

The chairman of the party, Donatus Nwankpa, disclosed this in Umuahia during a Leaders/Stakeholders meeting of the party which held on Sunday.

Nwankpa further disclosed that about 100,000 membership has already been registered while the membership registration/validation exercise continues to ensure that the party hits the desired target.

Speaking on efforts to further reposition the party, Nwankpa also disclosed that several committees which include Contact and Mobilization, Finance and Funding, Planning and Research, Publicity and Sensitization and Elders Advisory Committees have been constituted to strengthen the party ahead of 2019 elections.

The party chieftain added that the increased activities in the party and attained level of preparedness is a practical way of serving Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu and his party, the Peoples Democratic Party quit notice ahead of time.

While speaking at the meeting, a former governor of the state, Orji Uzor Kalu and the party's Gubernatorial candidate in the 2015 general election, Dr. Nyerere Anyim, reiterated that the days of PDP and Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu are numbered hence Abians have resolved to end their inglorious era.

According to Kalu, “This is the time for Leaders of the party to demonstrate love and unity towards moving the party forward. The love for our dear party should be supreme than love for positions. We must demonstrate understanding and work together as one united party. We should also forget the past and work towards taking over Abia in 2019. The era of rigging is over as nobody will steal votes again in Abia.”

Dr. Anyim, recently appointed Executive Commissioner, Pension Commission, averred that APC has repositioned greatly to win election at all levels in Abia State.

“Let’s work together as party leaders to achieve a mutual goal. With the array of political bigwigs and Leaders that have joined APC, we don’t have reason for not taking over the state in future elections,” Dr. Anyim said.
