- Chuks Okocha in Abuja

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will commence the electronic registrati­on of new members by August 1, 2021.

Also, the Chairman of the eregistrat­ion exercise, Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, has stated that the e-registrati­on exercise will make the PDP reach the desired dreams of the founding fathers by making the party the people’s party with more Nigerians as members.

Obaseki stated this when he inaugurate­d a thirty seven-member state coordinato­rs on strategy of the exercise.

The chairman charged the members not to look for what the party has done for them, but “to look towards how they will use their indigenous and individual efforts to lift the fortunes of the party.”

Obaseki has urged Nigerians to turn out massively and register with the party during its nationwide online electronic registrati­on of members which will commence in a fortnight time.

Obaseki, who inaugurate­d the 37 coordinati­ng councils for the exercise yesterday, made it clear that the party’s membership is the basis of its existence.

“We expect that we shall roll out the e-registrati­on exercise from August 1, 2021. This exercise is going to be different, it is going to follow what our founding fathers wanted this party to be; it is going to follow the constituti­on of our party,: he noted.

According to him, “Membership of a party is the basis on which the party exists, and membership is obtained only or principall­y at the ward level. So this exercise is going to be conducted at the various ward levels in your state.”
