The Commissioner, Federal Character Commission, FCC, representing Enugu State, Hon. Mrs. Ginika Tor has asked her party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, to send more registration materials to her Amoli ward in Awgu Local Government Area of Enugu State.
She made the request on Sunday after she revalidated her membership of the party in the presence of party officials, including the chairman of the APC in Enugu State, Dr. Ben Nwoye, the Deputy Chairman of the Membership Registration and Revalidation Panel for Enugu State, Rt. Hon. Michael Ugwa, a former military governor of Gombe State, Group Capt. Joe Orji, (rtd.), among others.
The Federal Commissioner, who carried out the exercise before a crowd of party members and supporters, said the people of the area were keen on identifying with the ruling party.
“You can see that the material given to us is already exhausted. Our people are happy with the APC-led Federal Government and that is the outcome of what you have seen.
“There has been massive registration since this exercise commenced, and that is why we are taking this opportunity to request that at least two more booklets be given to us. It will not be right to deny anyone the opportunity to register with our great party,” she noted.
Speaking earlier, the Vice Chairman of the Panel, Rt. Hon. Michael Ugwa, who represented the chairman, Senator Jonathan Zwingina said he was impressed with the massive turn out of party members at the event.
While hailing the people for their enthusiasm, Ugwa said Enugu people and indeed Ndigbo had every reason to be happy with the APC government.
“This is not a matter of sentiment; the indices are there to show that no previous government remembered Ndigbo the way this government has done. Do we talk about Enugu International Airport which now has the best runway in the country? Do we talk about the quality work on-going at Federal Roads in this zone?
“So, this is an opportunity for you all to be part of this moving train; our party is very serious about this exercise, which is very legal and legitimate. We want you to not just register, but be fishers of men for the APC, you have to go and get others; we have to populate this party.
“We are talking about a Nigeria President of Igbo extraction but the only way we can show seriousness is by populating this party; we must become part owners of this great party, the APC,” he added.
