The Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki and his counterparts in Oyo and Abia States, Engr. Seyi Makinde and Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, respectively, on Tuesday, flagged off the e-registration and Continuous Voter Registration (CVR) exercise in Anambra State, ahead of the November 6, 2021 date for the state’s gubernatorial poll.
Obaseki, who is also the Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) e-Registration Committee, expressed confidence that the PDP will emerge victorious in the forthcoming election.
According to him, “Anambra State is the first state that we are launching the e-registration and CVR exercise as we were charged, as the committee on e-registration, to commence the exercise following the forthcoming election on November 6, 2021.
“As far as I am concerned and have seen, PDP is the only party in Nigeria. Other parties are Special Purpose Vehicles (SPV) for elections. Our party’s strength rests on the ward. It’s the base of the party and the e-registration launch today will be driven by the leadership of the 326 wards in Anambra State.”
“With the exercise, we can register you in our portal as PDP members and also register you with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) if you are not a voter. The process is very simple,” he noted.
Stating the importance of the exercise in the nation’s electoral process, Obaseki noted that e-registration would make it impossible and difficult to rig the election as against the former practice of writing result in collation centers.
He urged PDP members to take the e-registration exercise seriously to boost membership as it will create room for the party to win the election, adding, “We must join the PDP to stop the hardship in the country; like high cost of food, the killings and havoc from herdsmen, bandits and robbers. Our e-registration is the right planning for the party.
