A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has called on the party in Rivers State to redouble its efforts towards sacking the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2023.

Eze, in a statement made available to LEADERSHIP in Port Harcourt yesterday, said the state has had enough larceny from the PDP, which allegedly looted the treasury without recourse to posterity.

He wondered what would warrant the Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike-led administration to borrow to fund projects when it recently received a whopping sum of N78 billion from federal government for federal projects executed by the immediate-past administration in the state.

Reno Omokri, a former presidential aide, has advised Anambra-born business mogul, Obi Cubana to join the All Progressives Congress, APC, to stop the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, and other government agencies from disturbing him.

Omokri said Cubana’s sins would be forgiven if he joins the ruling APC, the same way former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, did. 

Cubana was arrested and taken to the headquarters of the EFCC at Jabi, Abuja on Monday afternoon and has remained in custody for two days now.

The popular club owner made headlines and became the talk of the town in July 2021 when he hosted an ostentatious burial for his late mother in Oba, Anambra State, in which over 200 cows were reportedly slaughtered.
