UPDATED: Omo-Agege Explains Essence Of APC Membership Registration Exercise




The Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege has explained the importance of the All Progressives Congress (APC) nationwide membership registration exercise.

BIGPENNGR.COM reports that Omo-Agege spoke hours before the Caretaker/National Convention Planning Committee of the party announced that the purported suspension of the exercise till further notice, was not true.

The Deputy Senate President, in a statement by his Executive Assistant, Aruviere Martin Egharhevwa, Esq, said that the decision by the national leadership of the APC to carry out the nationwide membership registration exercise was to update and revalidate the party’s membership register.

According to him, the major, important, and well-planned exercise was to afford all who subscribe to the progressive ideals of the APC an opportunity to be duly registered as members without “discrimination or exclusion”.


The statement reads; “As a firm believer in the ideals and vision of the APC, the Deputy President of the Senate, His Excellency, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege hereby encourages our people to register en masse as members of the APC. He trusts that all leaders and stakeholders of the party will work together to make this internal exercise a huge success”.

He said that the overall objective of the membership registration exercise is to grow and strengthen the party from the grassroots.

“To win elections and govern, an organized and responsible party must consciously grow its base. It is, therefore, necessary and important for all our leaders and stakeholders to give unqualified support to this process by mobilizing our people to participate in it”, he said.


“We owe the Membership Registration Committee, and of course our national leadership, this solemn duty. Their success is our collective success”, Omo-Agege affirmed in the statement.

“All politics is local, they say. In this regard, the DSP specifically tasks and encourages all leaders and major stakeholders of the APC in Delta State and the wider South-South geo-political zone to seize this moment to unite in the best interest of the party and our people. Let us come together; mobilize our people to register as members of our party and strengthen the party thereby. It is the right thing to do”, the statement further said.
