A Chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC), in Oyo state, Chief Adegboyega Adegoke has said the ongoing registration and revalidation would afford the party to have accurate data as well as capturing those that have just attaining voting age ahead of 2023 general elections.
As he also appealed to all party faithful to avail themselves with the opportunity provided by exercise of the party, appealing to all leaders of the party to mobilize members, followers and supporters from their wards, local government, constituencies and the state as a whole to come out en masse to register for the ongoing party’s registration and validation exercise
Adegoke who made the call at the revalidation of his membership of the party at his polling unit at Oke Ado High School of Ward 10, Ibadan South West LGA of Oyo State, called for an all embracing exercise and the spirit oneness for all who willing to register and join the party in order to continue to reap the dividends of democracy.
The Senatorial hopeful, who is also Ajia Balogun of Ibadanland, noted that overall objective of the membership registration exercise is to grow and strengthen the party from the grassroots.
According to him, “This registration and revalidation exercise will afford our party to increase membership. Few years back when we did last registration some youths have not attain voting age, but now have attain voting age, this exercise will afford them, we need to capture them, youths are many in this country that have become adults now.
“Also it would afford the party to get accurate data that would be useful for analysis during the coming elections.
To win elections and govern, an organized and responsible party must consciously grow its base with accurate data.
“It is, therefore, necessary and important for all our leaders and stakeholders to give unqualified support to this process by mobilizing our people to participate in it. We owe the Membership Registration Committee, and of course our national leadership, this solemn duty. Their success is our collective success.
“All politics is local, they say. In this regard, I specifically tasks and encourages all leaders and major stakeholders of the APC in Oyo state to seize this moment to unite in the best interest of the party and our people. Let us come together; mobilize our people to register as members of our party and strengthen the party thereby. It is the right thing to do.
“I am therefore, calling on all the leaders and stakeholders of the APC to ensure full mobilisation, sensitization and participation of their people and ensure its success in their various catchment areas and the entire state at large”.
