A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia state, Dr Alex Otti, has called on Abia people to take advantage of the opportunity provided by the forthcoming membership registration exercise of the APC to register and become card-carrying members of the party.
Otti, who joined the APC last year with thousands of his supporters from his former party, explained that the membership registration billed to start on Monday, January 25, 2021 would provide citizens the opportunity to enjoy the necessary rights and privileges accorded to party members, especially when it comes to making critical decisions.
Speaking through his special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Ferdinand Ekeoma, Otti said: “What our party, the APC, is about to do is an exercise that would ensure that the membership of the party is captured in an electronic database. That would give us the opportunity to review our membership record, get to know our numerical strength, and above all, provide willing Nigerians the opportunity to become members of the APC and the platform to participate in critical decisions of the party, geared towards the advancement of democracy and upliftment of the welfare of the people.”
The former gubernatorial candidate in the 2019 election made it clear that he would align with other progressives to ensure that the APC in Abia State was repositioned to become more formidable, attract federal presence and robustly play its role of ensuring that Abia people reap the benefits of democracy which has eluded them in over 20 years of successive PDP governments.
He called on party leaders and stakeholders at all levels, especially at the wards, to ensure a hitch free process that would encourage people to troop out and register with the party.
