Delta State All Proggresives Congress, APC, Caretaker Committee, yesterday distanced itself from the arrangement between the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and two APC chieftains in the state, Prophet Jones Erhue and Mr Chidi Okonji.
In a statement jointly signed by Nathaniel Omo-Onyeke, Chairman of Delta State APC Caretaker Committee and Dennis Nwanokwai, the party said it was wise to dissociate the party from the shameful and beggarly posture adorned with pride by the sacked state exco.
The statement reads: “The attention of Delta State APC Caretaker Committee has been drawn to the recent accusations/counter accusations traded by two former members of the party, Prophet Jones Erhue and Comrade Chidi Okonji. We could have just ignored the disgraceful issue but as it involves members of our former and dissolved APC State Executive Committee Chairman (Prophet Jones Erhue) and Secretary (Comrade Chidi Okonji)”.
“We do not wish to be dragged into the mess of the sharing formula for or who should have collected a paltry N600,000 from an SSA in the PDP-led government of Delta state by people who have no shame and would do anything for tainted ‘gifts’.”
