PDP approves nationwide e-registration of members

IN what appears to be a major U-turn, National Working Committee (NWC) of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP said Sunday that it has concluded arrangement to carry out an E- registration exercise of party members across the country.

In a statement Sunday by PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh,  the decision to resuscitate the e-registration project was part of the re- engineering efforts to rebuild the party.

According to Metuh,  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.

It would be recalled that the project was conceived during the leadership of former National Chairman, Dr. Ezekwesili Nwodo, but it was thrown out by the party, just as  that eventually led to a team up by some leaders and stakeholders of the party and he was sent out as chairman of PDP.

Prior to Nwodo’s exit, the online registration project was  initially presented in the 52nd National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of PDP, August 12, 2010.

The project was aimed at harmonizing PDP’s  membership data, returning ownership of the party to the people and strengthening the various structures at all levels across the country.

Metuh said, “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.”
