PDP Not a Party Of Ghost Members — Gov Adeleke


Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke, on Friday, declared that his party, the People Democratic Party, was not a group of ghost members.

Adeleke made the disclosure in Osogbo while addressing Osun PDP stakeholders’ meeting in a veiled reference to a statement attributed to All Progressives Congress National Secretary, Senator Ajibola Basiru, who spoke at the opening session of the e-membership registration for APC and ‘Train-the-Trainer’ workshop held in Abuja on Thursday.

According to Punch, Basiru at the event raised doubt about the 45 million membership strength of the APC, explaining that the figure was a fabrication deployed as a tool for fighting causes unknown to the present leadership of the party.

He further disclosed that the cat was finally let out of the bag at the 2023 election where then APC presidential candidate, now President, Bola Tinubu, struggled to amass less than 10 million votes to coast home to victory.

The Osun governor, who was addressing party supporters and leaders who turned up for the event, declared that it has become necessary to update the PDP register in the state in line with the directive of the national leadership of the party.

He said, “We must not discriminate against each other. We are a family of progressive comrades. We are not enemies but allies in the struggle to deliver dividends of democracy using our party as a platform.

“To that end, we must urgently update our register in line with the directive from the national headquarters. The registration exercise must be thorough and real. We should not act like another party that falsified their party membership register.

“We must ensure real men and women rather than ghosts are registered as party members. PDP is not a party of ghost members and workers. PDP represents the people and we must capture real human beings in our register.”

He assured PDP members of the readiness to build the people, while not abandoning building the state and called for unity within the party fold.
