Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress and erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has counseled Mr. Tony Okocha, a former Chief of Staff, Rivers State Government House, to take his eyes off the concerns of the Rivers State Chapter of the party, noting that the way and manner the party conducts its campaigns for its presidential and governorship candidates in the state is no business of desperate third parties and nosy-pokers with zero electoral value.
In a statement made available to media houses in Port Harcourt, the party Chief said he read with disappointment a statement credited to Tony Okocha and his band of saboteurs under the fictitious guise of speaking for the Presidential Campaign Council of the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State, wherein the later accused the Rivers APC Governorship Candidate, Pst. Tonye Cole of avoiding to mention the party’s presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu to electorates in his campaign engagements with Rivers people.
Chief Eze the said statement entitled “Tonye Cole Is Intentionally Avoiding Campaigning For Bola Tinubu In Rivers State”, is deliberately concocted to brew political strife and sour the cordial relationship that exists between Pst. Tonye Cole and Bola Tinubu and give way for opposition candidates like Sen. Abe of the SDP to penetrate the ranks of progressives to sow discord ahead of the elections.
He said Mr. Okocha cannot claim to be a member of the progressives party while dangling between Gov. Wike and his guber candidate on the one hand and Sen. Magnus Abe and his Social Democratic Party on the other hand at the detriment of the APC, a party whose membership he falsely claims.
He said it is difficult to comprehend how an imposter whose anti-progressive tendencies was displayed by his blatant refusal to update his membership of APC connived with characters of his sort to smuggle his name into the APC Campaign Team, stressing that such underhand tactic calls for questioning.
It was he who severally distanced himself from all APC activities in the State, danced and collaborated with obvious enemies of the party to ensure that the plot to install Wike’s stooge to continue with the maladministration currently going on in the State is successful against the efforts of the APC to take over government and offer quality services to the good people of Rivers State.
The party Chief said the pains of Mr. Tony Okocha is anchored on the fact that Sen. Bola Tinubu, Amaechi and other leaders of APC have come to terms with his irrelevance in the politics of Rivers State and such understanding led to the rejection of his dubious campaign budget for the APC Presidential Torch-Bearer and by way of revenge, he is venting his frustration on Pst. Tonye Cole and the Rivers APC by sowing a seed of discord between the Presidential and Governorship candidates.
Eze further mentioned that one big problem facing Tony Okocha and his likes is their inability to comprehend the tactical scientific and hitech campaign tactics being deployed by Tonye Cole and his Team, hence their inability to come to pace with the speed of engagement and sophisticated strategy of the system.
He said Tonye Cole is not a noisemaker but he is busy doing his best as the Leader of Presidential Campaign Council in Rivers State to ensure that Rivers State is recovered and rescued from the hands of undemocratic forces currently holding her to ransom.
Eze counsel Tony Okocha to first try and rejoin the party before issuing any further statement on behalf of the party in whatever capacity his devious gangs may want to place him as his acts of meddlesomeness confirms him as a snooping rabbit.
Tony Okocha may as well decide who to support between Sen. Abe of SDP and Wike’s Siminialayi Fubara rather than dangle between the duo at the same time for fear of losing political patronage as a jobber.
Eze said it is shameful to learn that Tony Okocha can not categorically lay any valid claim to the membership of either APC, SDP or PDP, but hovers around one party to another, causing havoc among the children of men like the biblical Satan when he was chased down from heaven for attempting to usurp God’s own. authority.
