A member of the Presidential Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, Tony Okocha has attributed the victory of the APC, in the state, in last Saturday’s election, to the effort of Governor of the state, Nyesom Wike.
Some members of the APC PCC, loyal to Tony Okocha, the former Chief of Staff to former Governor Rotimi Amaechi, is have insisted that Wike is still a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.
The former Chief of Staff, who is the State Chairman, Local Organizing Committee of the APC PCC, during a press briefing in Port Harcourt, said they are ready to reciprocate the gesture of Governor Wike in the March 11th Governorship and state House of Assembly elections in the state.
He alleged that members of the APC led by former Minister of Transportation, Amaechi and the PCC members led by the Governorship candidate of the APC in Rivers State, Patrick Tonye-Cole, tried to scuttle the campaign of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, in the state.
He revealed that, “No meeting of the PCC under the leadership of the Governorship candidate, Architect Tonye Cole was ever held. No campaign for the presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu was ever sponsored neither in posters, billboards, jingles, campaign rallies nor in any form of campaign engagement was our presidential candidate mentioned.”
The former Chief of Staff said, since 2015, APC never had it right in Rivers state until the 2023 general elections.
