The website has received several inquiries from all over the world about diaspora registration of interested and prospective APC party members. In a statement released today by Dr. Ogbonnaya Onu, one of the APC leaders and Chairman of one of the legacy parties, ANPP, Dr. Onu made it clear that “The current registration exercise is to prepare for the forthcoming party congresses and convention. As soon as this is over, continuous registration will commence which will also involve on line registration for all those who want to become members. If there is any change, you will also get to know.”

Earlier, the All Progressives Congress (APC) extended its nation-wide membership registration by two days to accommodate the millions of Nigerians who have turned out to register but could not yet do so. In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday, February 9, 2014, the Interim National Publicity Secretary of APC, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the registration will now end on Wednesday, February 12th, instead of Monday, February 10th. “While we are aware that the good people of Nigeria have accepted our party, the APC, as the agent of the much-needed change that our country desperately needs at this time, we have apparently under-estimated the number of those who are eager and willing to participate actively in the change process by joining the APC.”
