The Rivers APC says it welcomes the approval granted its Presidential Campaign Office for use of the Yakubu Gowon stadium for the party’s campaign on February 15th 2023.
Darlington Nwauju, spokesperson of the party in a statement said the approval was sought for and gotten by the party’s campaign council through its secretary, James Faleke.
He also said Tonye Cole is the state coordinator of the Tinubu campaign and not Tony Okocha, adding that the latter is not a member of the APC.
“We also welcome the approval granted the Presidential Campaign Office for the use of the Liberation Stadium for the 15th February 2023 Presidential Rally of the APC and our Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu in Rivers State and we want to clarify that this approval was sought for and gotten by the Campaign Council through Hon James Faleke (Secretary of the Campaign), who has also reverted to the State Coordinator of the Tinubu Campaign in Rivers State, Pastor (Architect) Tonye Cole and not Tony Okocha (who is not a member of the APC), as the latter is struggling so hard to erroneously portray. Tony is not and cannot be Coordinator of an APC event as he is merely a member of an NGO under the PCC promoting the candidature of our Presidential candidate. He has no right to address the media either on behalf of the Presidential Rally Committee/LOC or the APC in Rivers State,” he said.
“What we know is that Tony Okocha is working hard to justify his pay from Governor Wike. Tony’s NGO has nothing to do with the preparations by Rivers State APC to host it’s Presidential candidate on the 15th of February 2023. We are surprised that the PDP in the state is so interested in using the likes of Tony as decoy to join the APC,” he added.
