“You will recall that on 20th April 2022, during a national press conference on state of the nation, PDP New Generation led by our director-general, Audu Mahmood, launched a project titled “Operation Rescue Nigeria Campaign.”
“The first phase of the campaign project, which lasted for over 2 months and will end by July 5th 2022, was a pro-PDP campaign aimed at promoting the party, mobilizing youth participation in politics, and registration for PVC.
“The campaign, which took place in the FCT and almost all the 36 states of the federation, was a huge success as thousands of young men and women with PVCs registered with the PDP New Generation via an online registration portal.
“Due to popular demand, PDP New Generation will commence a 5-day nationwide distribution exercise of 7,000 pieces of PDP membership cards to some of its bonafide registered members with PVCs.
“The membership cards are to be received by our members and taken to their respective PDP ward secretariats, for proper registration and documentation into the folds of our great party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
“The distribution exercise will take place from 4th to 9th July 2022. It will be conducted by the zonal, state, and local government coordinators of the PDP New Generation across the country.
“As we all look forward to the launching of the second phase of “Operation Rescue Nigeria Campaign,” permit me to wish us all a successful journey ahead.”
