The Oyo State chapter of the African Democratic Congress (ADC) has released the timetable for membership registration as well as congresses for wards, local governments and state chapter.
A caretaker committee with the responsibility of organizing the congresses and registration was last Thursday inaugurated in Ibadan, by the Acting National Chairman of the party, Dr Ralph Nwosu.
A former governor of the state, Rashidi Ladoja and Chief Michael Koleoso are currently members of the caretaker committee.
A statement by the committee’s Publicity Secretary, Dr Nureni Adeniran, said registration of party members will hold between Friday, August 10 and Thursday, August 16.
According to him, ward and local government congresses will hold on Saturdays August 18 and August 25 respectively while state congress is scheduled to hold on Tuesday, August 28.
Adeniran urged all party members to participate in the scheduled activities and conduct themselves peacefully, adding that the task to bring a people-oriented government in 2019 must be done with determination.
He explained that there was the need to put the structure of the party in all the wards, councils and in the state so as to hit the ground running in the quest to free the people from the yoke imposed on them by the All Progressives Congress (APC-led) administration.
He noted that the creation of the party structure would also enhance it “smooth and effective take off,” boasting that the ADC remained the government-in-waiting in the state.
