With the commencement of the e-registration exercise of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Edo State on Monday, the party says its target is one million members.
At the flag-off of the nationwide exercise, the Chairman of the state’s E-registration Committee, Kabiru Adjoto, expressed optimism that with the cooperation of party members, stakeholders and leaders, the exercise would be successful and the target of one million members would be achieved.
Adjoto, a former speaker of the state House of Assembly, announced that the party was setting up an e-registration Technical Academy in each of the three senatorial districts to make the exercise hitch-free, stating that the entire exercise would be leadership-driven.
“We are also setting up e-registration Technical Academy in each of the senatorial district where fresh agents will be receiving adequate training throughout the period of this exercise”, said the former speaker.
He said further, “Meanwhile, the entire exercise will be leadership-driven. Party leaders are encouraged to help deepen awareness-creation through diverse publicity mechanisms such as sponsorship of jingles on television and radio, as well as banners which may even bear the image of the sponsor”.
According to Adjoto, “Party leaders are also at liberty to recommend individuals to us who they wish to sponsor as ward field agents for the exercise; details of such persons should be forwarded to Edo PDP e-registration Help Desk Centre located at number 59, Airport Road, Benin-City”.
The former speaker assured that the party had also put all modalities in place to ensure that the exercise is all-inclusive to various categories of party members and intending members.
Also speaking, state party chairman, Dr. Tony Aziegbemi, urged members and intending members to turn up for the exercise, noting that the state governor, being chairman of the E-registration at the national level, the state could not afford to fail.
Aziegbemi posited that Edo State being the heartbeat of the nation, could also not afford to fail in executing the project.
