PDP e-registration suffers setback

03 September 2015, 13:10

Benin - Efforts by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to get more members through the introduction of the electronic registration exercise have suffered a setback , reports Thisday.

Some party members have kicked against the proposed N1 000 to be levied on each member as the registration fee.

The pilot phase of the e-registration exercise scheduled to commence in Edo State on Wednesday, failed to take off, as some of the party members protested the proposed N1 000 registration fee.

At a meeting held at the Edo state secretariat of the party, Raymond Dokpesi, Chairman of PDP’s e-Membership Registration Committee, had told party members that they would have to pay N1 000 to complete their registration.

The announcement was, however, greeted with murmuring among the party members present at the meeting, expressing their unwillingness to pay for the registration.

It would be recalled that the ‎National Publicity Secretary of the party, Olisa Metuh, had on 23 August, announced that the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, had approved the resuscitation of the online registration of its member, using Edo state as pilot for the project.
