ADC to register 500,000 members in Oyo in 2 weeks-Chairman



The African Democratic Congress (ADC) says it aims to register 500,000 new members in Oyo state in the next two weeks.
The National Chairman of the party, Mr Ralph Nwosu, disclosed this on Thursday during the inauguration of the state party congress committee in Ibadan.
The chairman stated that the party had become a leading brand in Nigeria since prominent persons in the South/West zone of Nigeria had become members.
“The essence of this gathering is to re-arrange the party, for the leaders to know what to do. We have since built leaders who mounded the role they want our members to play.
“Our party is people-owned and that is why we are different from others.
“Let me assure you that our party will register 500,000 members in the state within the next two weeks,’’ he said.
He called on the committee to bring up new leaders in the state to transform the party into a continental brand.
He said, “If Oyo state could boast of the first university in the country and the first political capital of old western region, then you should know the state is special in the country.’’
The committee, headed by Dr Femi Majekodunmi, also has Dr Dele Ajadi as the Secretary among other members.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the event had in attendance former Gov. Rashidi Ladoja and a former National Chairman of Alliance for Democracy, Chief Michael Koleoso.
Also present were Sen. Monsurat Sunmonu (ADC-Oyo Central), Mr Abdulwasi Musah, Deputy Speaker, Oyo State House of Assembly and other members of the State Assembly: Olusegun Olaleye and Bolaji Badmus.
Amb. Taofeek Arapaja, Sen. Femi Lanlehin, Dr Yunus Akintunde and three former Secretaries to Oyo State Government: Alhaji Sharafadeen Alli, Dr Ayodele Adigun and Chief Olayiwola Olakojo also attended the occasion.
