Tunde Akanbi, Ilorin
The Peoples Democratic Party PDP in Kwara State on Monday, commenced the electronic registration of new members in the State.
This step according to the party is in line with the directive of its national leadership.
The State Publicity Secretary of the party, Tunde Ashaolu who announced this in a statement issued in Ilorin, the state capital, said the exercise will be conducted in all the wards in the State.
He disclosed that the State’s e-registration Committee is chaired by a former Senior Special Assistant on Youth Empowerment, Alhaji Saka Babatunde and the National member of the e-registration committee representing Kwara, Otunba Anu Ibiwoye.
The registration, the statement added is aimed at ensuring that power resides with the people hence the decision to drive the programme through the wards across the state.
The need for more youth inclusiveness and need for accurate membership data is another reason given by the party for the e-Registration as most youth are now IT savvy.
Ashaolu who said membership was key to the existence and success of the party, urged existing and intending members to go out en masse to participate in the registration exercise that was recently launched by the national leadership of the party.
The Kwara PDP Publicity Secretary emphasised that the online registration was compulsory for old and new members who intend to participate in the forthcoming local government and State congresses of the party.
He also called on leaders and well informed members of the party to create awareness and help mobilise interested persons to take part in the registration exercise.
