…Okocha not APC member, says party spokesman
The National Protocol Director of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Chief Tony Okocha, has claimed that the former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, is no longer the leader of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State.
Okocha alleged Amaechi voted for the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the February 25 presidential election while he was still a member of the APC.
Okocha, who is also the Coordinator, Bola Tinubu Vanguard in the South-South, stated this while speaking to newsmen in Port Harcourt on Sunday.
Okocha further said he had mobilised support in the state for the President-elect and that the party won fairly.
He alleged that the action of Amaechi was the height of anti-party activity, saying he was now the leader of the APC in Rivers, adding that “Amaechi has long abandoned the party.”
“It is clear cut and certain that our former leader, Rt Hon. Rotimi Amaechi, became the leader of the party on grounds of him being a serving Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
