We believe that for us to succeed in our objective of rebuilding the party, we must be courageous enough to implement the e-membership registration of our party members.

Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC) on Wednesday in Abuja inaugurated a committee to conduct a nationwide biometric registration of all members of the party.

Inaugurating the committee members, the PDP acting National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus urged the members to make the registration process transparent and marketable to Nigerians.

"Everybody agrees that this is imperative for any organisation that wants to run effectively in the Information Technology driven world we find ourselves."

"It is obvious that this is the only single thing that will empower the grassroots politicians through a viable internal democracy in the subsequent operations of the party," Secondus said.

He said that with the online registration, every member of the party now had equal right to vote and be voted for.

"Gone are the days that the PDP belonged to the high and the mighty, the party now belongs to the common people,’’ he said.

Secondus charged the committee members to work with the consultant, e-collect Technologies Ltd. and the states party chairmen that would further coordinate the state chapters for the effective implementation of the system.
