Ganduje made this known when he play host to a delegation of elected Deputy National Officers and National Executive Committee members of the party at the secretariat in Abuja.

which brought the current number to over 40 million was conducted.
Ganduje while addressing newsmen, said that the essence of the electronic registration innovation is to capture the current membership strength of the party.

He noted that the number of votes garnered by the party during the last presidential election was a far cry from the actual strength of its registered members.
He said, “If you will recall, we had several 41 million members. But during the presidential election, we had only eight million. What happened to the rest? This is why we need to be digital and ensure that we are working with the correct data.
“Another step that we have taken is that we are reviewing our registration electronically now. The work has already started. You should be ready that all our members will be electronically registered so that we have an exact number physically.”
