The All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, has berated Tony Okocha for declaring himself leader of the party in the state.
Okocha, had during a press briefing at the weekend declared himself leader of the party after accusing immediate past Minister of Transportation, Chibuike Amaechi of anti-party activities.
However, Spokesperson the party in the state, Darlington Nwauju shortly after Okocha’s declaration dismissed him as a mere member of Tinubu’s campaign outfit noting that he was not a member of the party.
Part of his statement reads,
“…Please ask him to mention the names of just five out of the 27 executive members of the APC in his ward. Tony is a ‘confli-preneur’ and has a history of transactional politics.
“Are you not aware that the campaign outfit which he belongs to here in Rivers State is torn apart because of money allegedly donated to them by the governor of Rivers State?
Has he been able to account for all the monies passed through him? Even the PCC/ICC he belongs to is in disagreement with him.
“And he has not been able to assert himself on them. Please, remind Okocha that when the pillars of the APC in Nigeria will sit down to talk, he won’t be there.”
