PDP Commences E-Registration of Members….To Use Edo As Pilot

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) resuscitates the online system
for registration of party members across the country.
The party said Edo state would be used as a pilot for
the project, a development that has resulted in the
deferment of earlier scheduled congresses in the state.
PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, in
a statement on Sunday said the decision to resuscitate
the e-registration project is part of the reengineering
efforts to rebuild the party.
“The National Working Committee (NWC), after very
wide consultations with critical stakeholders, and in
line with the wishes and aspirations of our teeming
supporters across the country, has approved the
resuscitation of the e-registration project.
“This project, which was initially presented in the 52nd
National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of our
great party on August 12, 2010, is aimed, among other
things, at harmonizing our membership data, returning
ownership of the party to the people and strengthening
our various structures at all levels across the country.
“The NWC believes that the e-registration is indeed a
decisive step towards enthroning internal democracy
and giving every member a voice in the party.
“While details of the process will be transmitted to our
various structures across the nation, the NWC
announces that Edo state would be used as a pilot for
the exercise. Consequently, the earlier scheduled Edo
state congresses are by this announcement, deferred
until the completion of the pilot e-registration exercise
in the state.
“The national leadership, by this, charges all members
in Edo state to make themselves available for the e-
registration as well as work hard to win new members
and more supporters for the party in the state.
“Finally, the NWC reaffirms its irrevocable commitment
towards ensuring that the control of the party is
returned to the people, in line with the ideals of the
founding fathers, while urging all members to remain
focused and continue to work together in furthering
the rebuilding effort.”
