Eze, who is the erstwhile National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New People’s Democratic Party, criticized the former APC spokesman, Chief Ogbonna Nwuke who recently resigned his position and left the party.

In a statement in Port Harcourt, Eze said the APC in Rivers State was better off without Senator Abe and Chief Nwuke.

The PUNCH had reported that Abe while addressing his supporters in Bera, Gokana Local Government Area last week, boasted that the APC could not succeed in the state without him and his supporters.
