The All Progressive Congress Party (APC) in Oke-Ero Local Government of Kwara State has urged eligible party members to ensure that they get their names registered in the on-going voters registration exercise in the area..

The party made the appeal during a stakeholders’ congress held at the party secretariat in Ilofa on Friday.

The organisation of the stakeholders’ congress, according to the chairman of the party in the council, Chief Adeniyi Azeez Joseph, was meant to educate members on the rules guiding the exercise to avoid avoidable mistakes.

He said that the congress was specifically organised to address past mistakes by members in respect of voters registration exercise for them to be eligible party members.

The party boss noted that obtaining the voter’s cards remained the only weapon and authority for members to exercise their franchise in favour of the party.

 “The intention was to educate our members on the importance of the exercise and to address past mistakes by members as regard the registration exercise.

 “INEC has made it very clear that any party member who engages in multiple registrations will have his or her name expunged automatically,” he said.

Joseph, who is also the Onigemo of Egosi Land, used the opportunity to appeal to members to remain united and committed to the party principles and ideas in the interest of the party successes.

He described the recent appointment of Mr Adegoke Abegunde as the new Transition Implementation Committee TIC Chairman for the council as a right step in the right direction.

Joseph lauded the State Governor, Dr. Abdulfatah Ahmed, the APC leader in the state and Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki for the opportunity given to the youth to serve, especially at the grassroots.

Abegunde, in his own remark, thanked party members and executive for their support, which culminated in his appointment promising to reciprocate the gesture by ensuring the well-being of the people.

The State Commissioner for Agriculture and Natural Resources, Adegoke Bamidele in his remarks expressed the state government determination to make agriculture practices more attractive to the youth, especially at the grassroot.

A member representing Oke-Ero Constituency in the State Assembly, Hon Victoria Afolayan, in her contribution promised the enactment of by-laws that would add values to the well-being of the people.
