A national leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu, has described the ongoing registration and revalidation exercise as wasteful.
He also sided with the former governor of Osun State, Akande who had criticised the party over the exercise.
Akande, also condemned the Constitution of a party Caretaker and Convention Planning Committee.
Speaking to reporters at his Ikoyi residence after revalidating his membership of the APC, Tinubu said he could not fault his ally’s position.
“I will not fault Baba Akande’s position, I will not but endorse it”, the politician said, noted however that the current exercise was a matter of addition and subtraction, free entry and free exit.
According to Tinubu, “I have never heard a situation whereby the party’s register submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), at the time of APC registration, was invalidated”.
“You have joined a particular party; you have decided to leave that party. You have equal opportunity for new members to join and update the existing register of the party”, Tinubu stressed.
