Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi has described the registration and revalidation exercise of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ekiti State as inclusive and open to all irrespective of political view.
Dr. Fayemi who disclosed that President Muhammadu Buhari has directed all APC governors to ensure the success of the exercise in their respective states as well as monitor and provide support for states not governed by APC governors.
The Governor made the remarks when he received Membership Registration and Revalidation Monitoring Committee in Southwest, led by Sen. Lawan Shuaib in his office on Wednesday in Ado Ekiti.
Dr Fayemi and his wife Erelu Bisi Fayemu had on the first day of the exercise participated at their unit 09, ward 11 Isan Ekiti in Oye Local Government Area of the State.
Stressing that APC Governors are on ensuring success of the exercise across the federation, Governor Fayemi urged those with complaints to raise it with the Chairman or members of the revalidation and registration committee in their States.
Dr Fayemi commending members of the two committees for dedicating their time and energy to ensuring the success of the exercise and described the process as seamless “with wide acceptance from members of the party.”
“I registered on the first day exercise in my home town Isan and everything went seamlessly, I have been seeing on social media some of our leaders showing their registration slips, meaning that the registers were very well positioned across the various units in the State.
“As governor we are very keen to see the exercise succeed because Mr. President had directed us that we must ensure that things go well. Especially in states where we have governors in charge from APC and even in States where we don’t have governors in charge we have been given the responsibility to also monitor and support our members in those states.
“We will like to say that here nobody is excluded, we have encouraged everybody and that is also the message we have passed on to the chair of the committee that here it is about inclusion and not exclusion.
“Anybody that comes that wants to revalidate no debate revalidate even those who are not members of our party if they say they want to join us they are wellcome.
“No doubt, people may have their own political view about taking people that are particularly controversial. It is an inclusive process here, we want everyone regardless of which tendency they belong in the party in Ekiti or nationally to come out register and be part of the exercise.
Earlier the Chairman of the Southwest Monitoring committee Senator Lawan Shuaib said the process is an attempt by the leadership of the party to return the party to the people at the grassroots.
Senator Shuaib express satisfaction with the turnout of party members and new ones for the exercise adding that some polling units had exhausted their registration sheets.
He said the exercise would enable the party to have a viable and reliable register across all the wards in the country.
