PDP Unveils Umbrella Revolution Ward Volunteers
A novel programme called the Peoples Democratic Party’s Ward Volunteers Scheme (Umbrella Revolution) has been flagged off in the 36 state capitals and Abuja Federal Capital Territory (FCT), at the weekend.
This was revealed by Barr. Afam Iluonoh, the TAN director of media, while speaking with journalists in Awka.
He pointed out that the scheme, which was earlier flagged off by the president to showcase the landmark achievements of Dr. Jonathan, is powered by Presidential Campaign Organization (PCO) and sponsored by TAN in conjunction with Women for Change Initiative.
The TAN’s director of Media stressed that the project is to mobilise 100,000 paid volunteers across the 80,812 wards in Nigeria to campaign for Jonathan.
Throwing more light on the programme, Mr. Christian Udechukwu, a director in TAN, said over 6,000 volunteer centres would be established across the country, while five personnel are expected to man each ward to distribute information materials from PCO and souvenirs from the political advocacy group.
He said over 37 million vote-right forms have been printed and would be distributed to the grassroots to education voters on how to go about voting without invalidating their votes.
Udechukwu revealed that the scheme has a feedback mechanism that would enable any applicants to apply for any of the 500,000 vacancies existing in the stock exchange market.
