Segun Ayinde, Abeokuta
The Ogun state deputy governor, Engr. Noimot Salako-Oyedele, has urged party faithful in Ota to shun violence and embrace peace in order to ensure the registration and revalidation exercise of the All Progressives Congress in the community is devoid of rancour.
Salako-Oyedele, who made the call after revalidating her membership and flagging off the registration/revalidation exercise at the GRA Ota Ward 3 polling unit in Ado Odo-Ota local government area of the state charged party members to shun all acts that will bring disorderliness and affect the smooth running of the exercise.
According to her it is the responsibility of the party members to mobilise as many people as possible for the exercise, saying that politics is a game of numbers, not a social club.
“The benefits of politics is not for people in power alone. It is for all of us and the only way to benefit and enjoy more of it is to become a bona fide registered member. I am glad to say Ogun West has benefitted in this present administration led by Prince Dapo Abiodun,” she said.
She, therefore, implored party members to come out en masse for the registration and revalidation, noting that those willing to join the party should do so now before the opportunity given to them closes by February 25, 2021.
Earlier, the Chairman, Ogun State Membership Registration Committee, Ademorin Kuye, said that the exercise was critical in order to reposition the party, urging party loyalists to key into the exercise and cooperate with the party’s committee.
He opined that being a registered party member would open doors of opportunities to them especially when it comes to appointment and other benefits.
In their separate remarks, Senator Kamal Odunsi, Ado-Odo Ota local government transition chairman, Wasiu Lawal and chairman, APC Ogun West, Alhaji Muhammed Azeez, charged party stalwarts and others willing to join the party to register and revalidate their membership without violence and peacefully to make the exercise successful.
