The governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress(APC) in the 2019 General Elections in Cross River State, Senator John Owan Enoh, has called on Cross Riverians to make use of the opportunity provided by the forthcoming nationwide membership registration exercise of the APC to get registered and become card-carrying members of the party.
The senator explained that the membership registration exercise billed to commence on Monday, 25th January 2021 would provide members with the opportunity to become members of the party and enjoy the necessary rights and privileges accorded to members of the party. This he said will confer on members the right to contribute in the making of critical decisions that would assist the party to achieve huge success in future elections.
According to him “What our party the APC is about to do is an exercise that will ensure that the membership of the party is captured in an electronic database, and would allow us to review our membership record, get to know our numerical strength, and above all, provide willing Nigerians the opportunity to become members of the APC, and the platform to participate in critical decisions of the party geared towards the advancement of democracy and upliftment of the welfare of the people “
The Senator made it clear that he will align with other Progressives in the party to ensure that the party was rejigged and repositioned to become more formidable to robustly play its role as the alternative party in Cross River state with the ultimate desire of ensuring that Cross Riverians reap the benefits of democracy which have been denied them by successive governments, while also leveraging the opportunity of being the ruling party at the federal level to demand what is due to Cross River from the federal government at all times.
Sen. Enoh called on party leaders and stakeholders at all levels, especially at the ward level to ensure a hitch-free exercise that will encourage mass participation of people across the state.
