Okocha Incompetent To Speak For Rivers APC

A one time caretaker committee chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Hon. Sokonte Davies, has said that the factional leader of the party in the state and Rivers State representative on the board of the Niger  Delta Development Commission ( NDDC), Chief Tony Okocha, is not a card carrying member of the party reports The Tide.
Reacting to Chief Okocha’s directive to the APC members of the Rivers State House of Assembly who defected from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to impeach Governor Siminalayi Fubara, Hon Davies enjoined Rivers people not to take the statement of Okocha seriously.
He stressed that Okocha, a hireling was only seeking recognition as APC had never mandated any of its members to speak on the current political happenings in the state.
Hon. Davies warned Chief Okocha to desist from issuing political statements against the elected Governor of Rivers State and his government any further or be ready to face consequences.
“I have to challenge Tony Okocha to produce his membership of the APC from when it was formed till now.
“He should also provide his contributions made in the party, and above all, tell Rivers people why there is division in the party.
“The APC platform in Rivers State should not be used by anybody to cause more political upheavals in the state.
“The party does not belong to anybody or group of people, but to men and women of good will, who meant well for the progress of the state and its people”, Hon. Davies said, warning that any further statement by Okocha will be resisted.
“I use the medium to urge Tony Okocha  and his paymasters not to use Rivers APC to launch their faceless attacks on the current political dispensation in the state,” he said.
