A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, Engr Chukwudi Dimkpa has asked a factional leader of the party in the state, Tony Okocha, to stop being an agent of disunity and distraction to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s administration.

Tony had on Thursday led a faction of the APC in the state on a courtesy visit to the APC national chairman, Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje in Abuja, where he said a former governor of Rivers, Rotimi Amaechi during a meeting attended by many chieftains of the party in the state including Chukwudi Dimkpa had asked members to support the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar in the February poll.

But reacting, Dimkpa in a statement yesterday by his Special Adviser on Media, Stephen Deegbara, said he was never part of any meeting where whatever decisions Okocha has “conjured” was taken.

“We note that as a committed member of the APC, Engr Chukwudi Dimkpa has devoted his time, energy, and resources along with other stakeholders to ensure that the APC emerged victorious in the just concluded polls,” he said.
