As part of moves to garner more support and members for his political party ahead 2023 elections, President Muhammadu Buhari has departed Aso Rock in Abuja to his hometown in Daura, Katsina State, to participate in the ongoing All Progressives Congress Membership Registration.
As stated, the President who was in Daura on a four-day official visit left the seat of power on Friday afternoon to join the registration exercise.

Aminu Bello Masari, the Deputy Governor, the Speaker of the State House of Assembly, and the Chief Judge.

Register now for your Party and register when the time comes for elections,” Shehu statement said.
