Commend Governor Mai Mala Buni-led NCECPC

A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and the House of Representatives candidate of the party in Isoko North and South Federal Constituency in the 2019 general elections, Hon Joel-Onowakpo Thomas, has placed a pertinent call on Nigerians to get more involved in politics with a focal point of contributing their quota on the decision-making table of the nation.


The Delta statesman thought it wise to enlighten Nigerians on the need to make use of the golden opportunity of the oncoming membership revalidation and registration of new members into the ruling party in Nigeria, APC, by coming out en masse to register their membership with the party in their various wards in a bid to contribute wholesomely to the decision building organ of the party which in turn will have positive impact on people-oriented governance.


Taking a cue from the spate of events which happened in the preceding year, most especially the ENDSARS protest which shook the nation mostly at the southern region and the clamour by a portion of Nigerians demanding for effective governance from governments at all levels whilst meeting up to their civic responsibilities, Hon. Joel-Onowakpo Thomas has stated that the only way to add value to a system is by getting involved in its core spectrum and not trying to reshape it from its peripherals which has little or no significant effect.


“I must say governance is a symbiotic effort from both the government and her people, but the people need to have the understanding that effective governance has to do mostly with them getting involved in the system at all levels. The people getting involved should not be at the peripherals but deeply involved in its organs to rejig a failing system or engage in decision-making entity whilst bridging the gap between the governed and government.


“One take from the ENDSARS protest that degenerated to an unbearable state undeserving of a nation whose foresights are knitted on reverberated human capital development, improvement and revamping of dilapidated capital structures, laudable agricultural reforms and building legacies in all round sectors to better the lots, is the existence of little lapses between certain classes of people, mostly youths and political system.


“Elatedly, a window opportunity has been presented by the APC to the people to come join in an all-inclusive governance by registering their membership with the party in their various wards at their respective local government areas; this at the tail end will aid them in contributing extensively by bringing in fresh ideas that will be of meaningful impact in the compounded development of our nation, Nigeria.


“We must understand the polling units are the building blocks of every political party and as such, Nigerians must endeavour to get involved in its executive administration by registering their membership at the ward level for onward composition of her administrative organ and this forms the bedrock that synergizes with the ward, state, zone and national organs of the party respectively.


The stalwart has also commended the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led National Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (NCECPC) on the fantastic job they have been doing so far to steer the party from implosion caused by embellished factional activities in various state chapters of the party.


“I specifically want to commend the Governor Mai Mala Buni-led National Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (NCECPC) for the exceptional job they have been doing so far in keeping the party in array, mending collapsed political alliances, bringing an end to several litigations that held the party spellbound for doom which culminated in our loses in some States such as Zamfara, Rivers and Edo States respectively and repositioning the party in a formidable accord to win future elections.


The progressive chieftain has also called on the members of APC in Delta state to take the revalidation and registration exercise with utmost commitment whilst ensuring a seamless process devoid of rancour which in no distant time will be advantageous in the increment of its membership capacity nationwide.


“The members of the All Progressives Congress in Delta State must utilize all available means to ensure a hitch-free exercise by ensuring they meet up to the inflow of prospective entrants whilst revalidating the membership status of old members. This is a golden opportunity presented before us to build on our membership capacity and we must ensure we utilize it to the fullest”, Hon. Joel-Onowakpo Thomas reiterated.
