The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has disclosed that it is set to launch its electronic / online membership registration to ease the process of registration for its members.
The PDP National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, who disclosed this in Abuja recently, explained that the electronic membership registration will help to enlarge the membership base of the party.
Secondus explained that the move was targeted at the devolving powers to the zones and the state chapters of the party with a view to returning PDP to the people.
He said: “We are embarking on massive membership registration to open up the party to all who desire to join. Soon, the electronic/on-line membership registration will be launched. This National Working Committee (NWC) is devolving powers to the zones and state chapters as part of efforts to return the party to the people.
“We are also taking steps to conclude all outstanding congresses. Since we came on board, the National Working Committee (NWC) has hit the ground running. We have embarked on series of consultations with critical stakeholders including former presidents, national assembly caucus, governors and elder statesmen to build consensus on the direction of the party.
“We held a retreat for NWC members and state chairmen to develop a blueprint and fine tune the agenda for the party. I beckon on all our members to put aside all bickering and join forces to rebuild the party. We look forward to the return of all our members’’.
To wrestle power from the All Progressives Congress (APC) in 2019, he urged all the members of the party to embark on aggressive campaign and mobilisation.
” We must mobilise, mobilize and mobilize. The youth and women directorate is taking the lead. We must relocate to our wards and let the people know that the PDP is repositioned and has all it takes to deliver good governance to the people. This is not the time to be Abuja politicians.
“This is the time to work. We must rein in our individual ambitions and work for the success of the party. PDP is the best platform to salvage the country. We have the experience and have learnt from our mistakes’’, he said.
