In keeping with the strategic desire to get at least Six million, nine hundred thousand Akwa Ibom people as members of its party, the Peoples Democratic Party in the State has commenced a fresh membership registration and reassessment campaign.

This phase of membership registration and reassessment which is targeted at both new and old members is billed to commence from Thursday, May 16, 2024 and end on Friday, May 31, 2024.

Flagging off the Membership Registration and Reassessment Campaign at the PDP State Secretariat Complex on Wednesday, May 15, 2024, the Akwa Ibom State Chairman of the PDP, Rt. Hon. Aniekan Akpan at an Emergency expanded Exco meeting of the Party said the exercise which is geared towards expanding the already robust membership base of the Party is expected to move the membership statistics of the PDP in Akwa Ibom State to about 6.9million active members.

Rt Hon. Aniekan Akpan said “Every week, thousands of Akwa Ibom people continue to reach out to members of our party across the different strata, expressing their genuine desire to register as bona fide members of the PDP. Also, everyday, we have people who turn 18 and want to belong our party which is the most preferred Political Party by Akwa Ibomites. Therefore this membership registration and reassessment exercise, apart from being a directive of the National Headquarters of our Party that States should organise and float a Periodic membership reassessment exercise, is also our own way of opening our doors to new members, while also reassessing and updating the membership status of our old members.

So we have distributed a
Membership Registers and Cards which will be in Custody of the Ward Chairmen across the 369 Wards in Akwa Ibom State with the Directive that the Ward Chairmen should register new members and reassess and update the membership status of old members at no cost to anyone. His Excellency, the Governor of our State and Leader of the PDP in Akwa Ibom has cautioned that no Chairman should demand a dime from anyone as a condition for registration and reassessment of membership, and I am sure that the Ward Chairmen in their usual manner will heed this directive”

The State PDP Chairman also re-echoed the call to the remaining members of other Political Parties to use the opportunity offered by this exercise to return the PDP fold.

The Akwa Ibom State PDP helmsman lauded the Governor of Akwa Ibom State for the visionary and superlative way he has led the State and the Party in the past one year, stressing that impressive gains of the Pastor Umo Eno-led administration has given Akwa Ibom and the PDP a lot of mileage across diverse sectors in the state’s development trajectory.

Other Officers of the Party who spoke at the meeting expressed the optimism the exercise will be hugely successful as it receive total support and commitment from existing members of the Party.
