John Akpanudoedehe, national secretary of the APC caretaker and extraordinary convention planning committee, disclosed this while inaugurating the party’s eight-man constitutional review committee in Abuja, on Tuesday.

Akpanudoedehe said the party expects the committee to work as a team to harness its abilities for the overall benefit of the APC.

“At the formation stages, parties will often adopt the minimum requirements needed to secure registration, but as a pro-people’s party, the APC leadership of governor Mai Mala Buni believes that in rebuilding the party, there must be reforms that reflect the current trends and aspirations of the owners of the party — that is the people, the masses,” he said.

“Our party has grown quite large in the last few years, and is poised to become the largest party on the continent with the ongoing membership registration and revalidation exercise.

“For this reason, we must have a set of laws that is near perfect, by filling the lacunas. Therefore, your work is well set out for you.”

He said the APC expects the committee to seek input from critical stakeholders, advocacy groups, and party members in the course of the assignment.

In his remarks, Tahir Mamman, chairman of the committee, thanked the party’s leadership for the confidence reposed in them.

He gave the assurance that the committee will work within the time frame and approach its task with all seriousness.

Tahir said the committee will also ensure that the exercise is all-inclusive by seeking input from interested stakeholders.

Other members of the committee include Dakas Dakas, Akinremi Olaide, Ego Ezuma, Mohammed Kumaila, Shuaibu Aruwa, and Ekokoi Solomon.
