Ongoing membership drive only for new members – PDP


The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says its ongoing membership drive and registration is for new members, not for existing members.

The party’s National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba made the clarification in a statement on Monday in Abuja.

Ologunagba said that the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) had received reports that some existing members of PDP in some wards in certain states were being requested to revalidate their membership in the ongoing exercise.

“The NWC in clear terms clarifies that the ongoing membership drive and registration of new members is only targeted at providing opportunity and access to eligible Nigerians, who are enthusiastic and surging in their millions to register as members of our party across the country.

“The NWC further clarifies that the membership status, rights and privileges of already existing members remain valid and in no way whatsoever affected by the membership drive.

“Consequently, no existing member is expected or required to have his or her membership revalidated, as such individuals remain bona-fide members of the party and not subject to any form of revalidation,” he said.

The National Publicity Secretary advised all party members and officers, especially at all electoral wards across the country to take note and be guided accordingly.

He acknowledged the continuing influx of millions of Nigerians into the party in the ongoing PDP membership drive exercise across the country.

Ologunagba urged all members to continue to work together in the drive to further strengthen the party for the task ahead. (NAN
