The All Progressives Congress in Oyo state has announced the distribution of more membership registration and revalidation materials across the thirty three local government areas in the state signalling the continuation of the exercise which was earlier put on hold for reasons attributed to logistics challenge.
Party chairmen at local government levels and other relevant officials were today (Thursday) summoned to the Oyo APC state Secretariat at Oke-Ado, Ibadan to take the delivery of more membership registration materials after due diligence had been carried out by the members of the 7-man Monitoring Committee from the National Secretariat who were on hand to supervise the exercise in the state.
In a statement issued on Thursday and made available to journalists in Ibadan by Alhaji Kehinde Olaosebikan and Olawale Sadare, Chairman and Secretary of the Party’s Media and Publicity Committee respectively, Oyo APC stated that it was satisfied with the success recorded so far in the conduct of the exercise which would now be concluded in the last day of this month.
“We are glad to announce to members of the public that our Party has ordered all its field officers to resume at their duty post immediately to recommence the membership registration and revalidation process across all the 4,778 Polling Units in the 351 Wards of the 33 local government areas across the state. This announcement came as the Party received more registration materials from Abuja following a successful review of the exercise which commenced in the first week of February across the state.
“We have been inundated with genuine concerns and agitation over the suspension of the registration exercise in most of the centres even after Abuja had extended the closing date till the end of March, 2021. This was as a result of the inability of designated officials to attend to many people who had thronged the registration centres following the exhaustion of materials earlier deployed. Now that more materials have been provided, members of the public who are desirous of joining the Broom Party can visit the Polling Unit nearest to them and get registered.
“Meanwhile, it is also imperative for those who recently joined Oyo APC from other political parties particularly former ZLP and ADC members as well as the disciples of former Governor Rashidi Ladoja to take full advantage of the new opportunity of recommencement of the registration exercise and get registered at the grassroots level even as the Chief Akin Oke-led leadership of the Party has again assured that all willing members of the public would be attended to without any discrimination.” The statement concluded.
