Ademorin Kuye has disclosed that the committee would be fair to all parties during the period of the exercise.
Hon. Ademorin Kuye who made this known when he led the Registration committee on a courtesy call to the Governor, in his office, at Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta, commended the State Governor for making their job easier with the provision of an enabling environment.
“We want to assure the State that we are going to be fair to all the parties and ensure that everybody that comes to register are attended to without any delay.
“The Registration Exercise will commence on Tuesday, 9th of February when the Zonal Committee will be visiting to register the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osibajo and then we the State Registration committee will be visiting the polling unit of the Governor to register him and then register the Deputy Governor too,” he said.
Kuye also disclosed that after the completion of the exercise on the 23rd of February, 2021, the committee would commence the sorting of registration details on the 24th of February and would also give room for appeals and complaints from any quarter before the committee submits its report to the National Registration and Revalidation committee.
“The Registration Exercise will be done between the 9th of February and the 23rd of February and on the 24th of February, we will be sorting out the registration details, then on the 28th, we will be looking at appeals and complaints from wherever they may come from and after that, we will be done with our job and return to Abuja to submit our report to the National Registration and Revalidation of membership committee,” he said.
Ademorin while noting that the committee has completed the training of its supervisors in the 236 wards of the State, added that the committee has received 160 cartons *of what Sir?* totaling 3,213 registers and 321,300 forms for the exercise.
In his remarks, the Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun while noting that no one would be discriminated against during the exercise, noted that the purpose of the exercise, which is to make the party more bigger, would be defeated if members are discriminated against.
“I will continue to ensure that we do not discriminate, as a matter of fact, it will not make sense for us to discriminate against anyone, winning an election is only by way of numbers, the more, like they say, the merrier, the more we are the greater the chances of us winning in elections, we can not be saying we are inclusive on one hand and then on the other hand, we are not allowing people to join us,” he said.
Abiodun while attributing the harmony witnessed by the committee at the recently concluded stakeholders meeting to the inclusive nature of his administration, noted that the party is not only harmonious, but also peaceful in the State.
Governor Abiodun who also noted that his administration would give the committee all the cooperation it deserves, added that for the ruling party to continue to enjoy its dominant position in the State and the country as a whole, all hands must be on deck to ensure the successful implementation of the Registration and Revalidation exercise.
The State helmsman who also noted that the registration exercise would be done in the wards and polling units as prescribed by the party, added that the registration of the Vice President and himself at their wards and polling units are symbolic and defining steps that would show that registration is not to be done at the corner of anybody’s home.
