Vice President Professor Yemi Osinbajo has finally moved his political base out of Lagos to his home state of Ogun as he revalidates his All Progressives Congress (APC) membership today in Ikenne. Recall that the Vice president voted in Victoria Garden City, Lagos during the 2019 elections. Perhaps determined to carve out a base for himself, he has decided to return home.
Ogun State APC Chairman of the APC Registration and Revalidation exercise, Ademorin Kuye said at the commencement of the exercise next Tuesday, the Vice-President will be the first participant to be registered.
Kuye said the committee has been able to train supervisors in all 236 wards of Ogun state, noting that the committee has received 3, 213 registers and 321,300 forms for the exercise.
“The registration exercise will commence on Tuesday, 9th of February when the Zonal Committee will be visiting to register the Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osibajo and then we, the State registration committee will be visiting the polling unit of the Governor to register him and then register the Deputy Governor too,” he said.
Spokesman to VP Osinbajo, Laolu Akande also confirmed that his principal will be in Ward One, Ikenne, Ogun State today to participate in the revalidation and membership exercise of the APC. “He will be received by Gov Abiodun and other party functionaries and members in the State” he said
Kuye also disclosed that the completion of the registration on February 13, the sorting of registration details will kick off on February 24. According to him, this gap will allow for appeals and complaints from any quarter before submitting its report to the National Registration and Revalidation committee.
