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 as the exercise will further showcase the greatness of our party.”
On his part, Makinde noted: “I am from the South-West. Obaseki is from the South-South, and Ikpeazu came from the South-East; you have the full support of the Southern part of Nigeria.
“If I can win election with just one member in the Oyo State House of Assembly, you can also do the same. Don’t be discouraged. With the e-registration, it will be difficult to write results. They couldn’t rig the Edo election; they can’t also do it here. We will all rejoice come November 6, 2021 after the governorship election.”
Ikpeazu charged the party members to embrace the registration exercise, adding, “We must come out en-masse to register from the comfort of our homes. The process is easy. No time to stand back but stand firm to stop the suffering and hardship in the nation by supporting PDP all the way to 2023.”
Former Vice-Presidential candidate of the PDP, Dr. Peter Obi, commended the governors of Edo, Oyo and Abia states for coming to support the party’s guber candidate, Valentine Ozigbo.
