The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kano State has warned civil servants and all persons who currently enjoy the patronage of the State government to officially join the ruling party or lose all the benefits and opportunities provided by government.
New Telegraph reports that the Chairman, Kano State chapter of APC, Abdullahi Abbas, issued the threat while declaring open a stakeholders’ meeting to flag off the membership registration in Kano.
He warned that government would no longer tolerate the employment of anyone who does not possess the APC membership card, even as he charged all civil servants and political office holders to ensure they register with the party as the membership registration commences across the state.
“We need to rise up and ensure the success of the registration in our party, the APC. All political office holders, all government employees and all members of the civil service must come out and register with the APC.
“Not only them, but all their family members and friends as well as their wards must come out and register with the APC. “I call on the state governor not to assent to the employment or empowerment of anybody that is not registered with our great party.
“There is no way we can accept a situation whereby anyone will benefit from the goodies of the government and will not register with the party. “If the state governor refuses to heed to this demand, we will protest.
“Our great party was in the lead during the last registration exercise and must do everything possible to maintain that position.
“It is not enough for you as a beneficiary of the government to just register alone without bringing those around you to register,” Abbas stated.
