Ahead of the 2021 Anambra Guber polls, the Young Progressives Party (YPP) have disclosed that it has registered over 400,000 members in the State.
The party’s candidate for the November 6, 2021 Governorship Election in Anambra State, Senator Ifeanyi Ubah disclosed this on Friday in Abuja during a media parley as part of activities to mark his 50th birthday.
Ubah, who is representing Anambra South in the Senate, said YPP embarked on the exercise in order to have scientific data of all its members in the state.
He described the registration exercise as peaceful, orderly and rancour-free, saying members comported themselves across the state.
According to him, over 150, 000 members out of the 400,000 on the register have so far been captured electronically.
He assured the people of the state that the full biometric capturing of all members would be completed before the election.
Senator Ubah said, ‘We have been able to register 400,000 people manually but so far, we have over 150,000 recorded electronically. The process of ensuring that all members are recorded electronically would be completed before the election.
‘We want to be sure of the actual numbers of our party members. Anybody coming to sit for four hours to get captured in the biometric registration must definitely be a serious party member.’
He pledged to continue to serve God and humanity for having the privileges of achieving so much as a young man despite his humble background.
‘I feel great and thank God for his grace by sparing my life to witness my 50th birthday. Looking back to see what God had made me achieve in life, gives me a lot of joy. I will continue to serve God and humanity.’
