According to him, the APC chairmen from the 19 Northern states will work out the modalities for the success of the exercise, even as he said they would discuss other issues for the growth of APC.

Dabang noted that Nigeria is grappling with the adverse effects of the COVID-19 as well as some economic challenges.

The meeting, the chairman said, became imperative in order to galvanise more effective ways of working with APC governors to further deliver good governance to the people.

He said: “Our party is set to welcome new members into our growing fold and this exercise will be done at the various polling units across the country. Our meeting will touch on that and other ways of synergy among us – our governors and the national secretariat – so that the people will enjoy the benefits of democracy.

“We hope we will have fruitful and frank deliberations.”

Also, APC stakeholders in Qua’an Pan Local Government Area of Plateau State have agreed to mobilise and educate their members on the importance of party registration.

They stressed that the exercise is the foundation of the rights of individuals within the party.

During a meeting at the weekend at Baap, the headquarters of the local government area, the stakeholders also adopted measures to ensure massive turnout and participations of its members within the locality.

They cautioned against discrimination, even as they encouraged members to mobilise and woo non-members to join the party, while holding firm to the existing ones.

The stakeholders also harped on the dangers of COVID-19 and encouraged people to always wear face masks to avoid persecution and a possible fine of N20,000, as well as observe all safety protocols.

Senator Dame Nora Ladi Daduut thanked the people for their mandate to her.

She promised to revisit all her campaign routes in the six local government areas of her senatorial district to appreciate them.
