Ondo APC Registration: Register Only Serious, Committed Members, Says Gov. Akeredolu


By Temitope Adedeji, Akure

The Ondo State Governor,  Oluwarotimi Akeredolu,SAN, has urged committee-in-charge of the All Progressives Congress (APC) membership registration in the state to register only serious and committed members to the party.

He emphasized on the need to attract only quality people into the party, stressing that their commitment to the party is crucial.

The Governor was speaking at a stakeholders’ meeting with leaders of the APC in the state and the committee-in-charge of the registration exercise in the state led by Mr. Murphy Lawal and the secretary, Hon. Taiwo Olatunbosun.

According to the governor, “the important thing for me is that we should not register people who are not ready to show commitment to the party.

“To be a member of this party, we need commitment, and that commitment is about finance.

“Let us be concerned about quality and not quantity. People who can make a strong case for the party. There must be a point where we put the interest of the party first. Go after people who really have the interest to be members of this party.”

The Governor also disclosed that the foundation laying for a befitting party secretariat for the state chapter of the party will be held this coming Saturday.

He noted that before the APC secretariat was burnt down by hoodlums during the #ENDSARS protest, the party has been planning on building a befitting party secretariat in the state.

He called on members and leaders of the party to contribute to the building project, adding that the building must be completed and occupy this year.

He added that “What we are here to do is essentially a party matter. We have said that we will get this place for your use throughout your period since our party secretariat has been burnt.

“ We will be doing that as a party member and not as government. The government is not involved in this at all.”

In his remarks, the acting chairman of the party in the state, Engr. Ade Adetimehin described the APC as the most beautiful bride in Nigeria today.

Adetimehin said, ” The APC is performing, particularly in Ondo State. We have performed. This governor has performed across the length and breadth of the state. My town, Idanre is a case study. This is a progressive state. It’s noted for politicking and hospitality.

The Committee’s chairman and secretary, Murphy Lawal and Taiwo Olatunbosun commended the Governor for representing the party by delivering dividends of good governance to the people.
