07 February 2014, 13:28

Lokoja - Former Governor, Abubakar Audu, and ex-member of the House of Representatives, Dino Melaye, have formally been registered as members of the APC in Kogi.

Audu and Melaye were formally registered on Thursday and Friday at Ogbonicha, Ofu, and Aiyetoro-Gbede, Ijumu Local Government Areas of the state, respectively.

Audu, who arrived at the Ogbonicha Ward 1 polling unit in company of top party officials, was received by a large crowd of supporters.

He was immediately taken through registration formalities before being issued his membership card.

Speaking to newsmen shortly after the registration, Audu expressed delight over the turnout of people and peaceful conduct of the exercise in his hometown, saying that it was an indication that Nigerians want a change come 2015.

He said that the national headquarters of the party had provided enough materials to register as many people as possible, saying that the target was to register two million people in Kogi alone.

Melaye later said that he was impressed by his people’s enthusiasm for the APC.

He lauded the registration officials for their dedication to duty and appealed to the people to continue to be peaceful in their conduct while the exercise lasted.
