APC Reg/Revalidation: Jedy Revalidates, Holds Rally For Membership Drive

The Minister signing the APC register 


The Honourable Minister of State for Power, Goddy Jedy Agba, OFR, yesterday revalidated his membership of the All Progressives Congress, APC.


Agba did the revalidation during a membership drive rally held at his the local government APC chapter secretariat in Obudu, Cross River State.


He encouraged people to take advantage of the ongoing registration/revalidation exercise of the party to join en mass.



The Minister said that the APC government has done so much for Cross River and the registration exercise was an ample opportunity for more people from the state to key into the vision of the party.


According to him, "We're here not because of me or anybody but our great party, the APC. From tomorrow, I'll move to other parts of the state to see what's happening there and encourage more people to join" .


He maintained that, "My message to you, my people is to take advantage of the ongoing registration/revalidation exercise to join the party en mass. Politics is a game of numbers and if we must win elections, we need to grow our membership.



The APC government has done so much for us. Bekwarra had no light for almost six ywars but recently, we restored light in Bekwarra. Here in Obudu, the entire local government was in darkness for over six weeks but just within 24 hours when I heard it, we restored light. That's the advantage of having one of your own as Minister.


In Yala, the APC government is digging boreholes for some communities and the approval for the Yala-Okpoma road has been granted. We're currently carrying out solar light projects in Obanliku. We believe that to grow the local economy, we must create the favourable atmosphere by providing improved electricity.



"The President has given me mandate to electrify six million homes with solar power. In the next few months, we'll kickoff the exercise and we'll come to you to decide the homes to benefit from this.


So, for all these and many more that I have not mentioned and that would come, we need to join APC. APC will make us to reap the dividends of democracy".


Agba encouraged young people to get involved in politics to bring the change they desire.


"To our great youths, I want to encourage them to get involved. The best form of protest is during election and the surest part for the youths to get more involved in politics is by joining the APC.


"Cultism doesn't pay. Disrespect for elders, leaders don't pay. You need to prepare yourselves for opportunities by going to school and cultivating good and responsible habits".


Also speaking at the rally, former Executive Secretary of the National Planning Commission, Chief Fidelis Ugbo who hails from Obanliku, thanked the Minister for bringing the people together and urging them to join the party.



He said that the state would benefit more if the membership of the party grows hence, more people should come out and register.


The Minister was accompanied to the rally and revalidation by the Managing Director of Cross River Basin Development Authority, Engr. Bassey Nkposong, National Caretaker Organizing Secretary of the Party (South - South), Hon. Atsu Liberty, former member representing Obudu /Bekwarra /Obanliku federal constituency, Hon. Mike Ogah, Director, Nigerian Electricity Management Agency, Mr. Pius Achu, his Chief of Staff, Mr. Joel Dimla and many other top party leaders.


The rally had in attendance, all the Caretaker chapter Chairmen of the five local governments in the North, members of National registration committee sent to the state and thousands of party members.
