The APC Evwreni Ward 8 Chairman, Mr Clever Owhe, who received decampees to the party emphasised the need for all members of the party to actively participate in the ongoing voters’ registration process to ensure that they are not disenfranchised during the local government and 2019 general election.

According to the EDP; “No state would be left out, qualified indigenes of Evwreni shall benefit from NDDC empowerment programs like scholarships, youth empowerment schemes, agro allied packages and so on”.


The EDP who charged party faithfuls to be united, also encouraged them to key into the ongoing shift from the Oil and gas sector to Agriculture by going into commercial farming.


“On a final note, I also encourage everyone to support the mandate of Mr President so that the dividends of democracy would be fully actualized”, Adjogbe stated.


According to Mr Owhe the registration of the party members would boost the party’s fortune in the forthcoming elections as more members would then be able to exercise their right to vote.


The Ward Chairman also lauded Mr President for appointing a technocrat from his Ward, to man the esteemed office of the Executive Director Projects in NDDC.


In his words, “It is a thing of pride for me, for Mr President to appoint a person from my ward as EDP. His appointment remains a round peg in a round hole”.
