The immediate past National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has said the revalidation of the membership of the party is contrary to the party’s constitution.
Oshiomhole stated this while answering questions from journalists, after revalidating his membership of the party in Etsako West local government of Edo State on Tuesday.
“APC is governed by constitution and not by man. The constitution only provides for registration and I registered as a member of the APC in 2014 under the Interim national chairman Chief Bisi Akande.
“There is nothing in the APC constitution that says a member shall revalidate or renew its membership.
“Once you registered when you joined the party and you have not defected, you are a member. So revalidation is strange to our constitution,”
“I have only done this because I want peace to reign; but in doing this, we have to be careful not to create constitutional breach,” Oshiomhole said.
