Governor of Osun State, Adegboyega Oyetola has assured of a hitch-free membership registration and revalidation of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
In a statement issued by Ismail Omipidan, the governor’s spokesperson, Oyetola disclosed at a stakeholders meeting at the Banquet Hall, Government House, Osogbo on the formal registration and revalidation of the party’s members in the state and South West regions calling for decorum before, during and after the entire registration process.
He assured that the party was ready to conduct a free, fair and credible registration exercise as the government was determined to provide consistent security to meet this objective.
“I am sure you are all aware of this exercise. Even before the beginning of this exercise, some were asking why we needed to go for another registration and revalidation. The answer was that some were very young at the last time a similar exercise was done.
“It is important for us to know who is who in APC and that is what we are doing. The exercise is simple. It is just for one to register if one has not done it before. For those who have registered, all they need to do is to revalidate their membership.
“Don’t allow those that are not residing in your polling units or wards to register. We all know ourselves and if you see any stranger, alert members of the registration committee for proper action.
“We are going to provide adequate security to ensure seamless exercise. Party members and leaders are enjoined not to take the crowd to the registration points that could create unnecessary intimidation because the exercise is not a collective registration. Rather, it is an individual exercise,” he said.
Osun APC Caretaker Chairman, Prince Gboyega Famodun also urged members to view the registration exercise as a family affair which must be treasured.
