The Rivers State chapter of All Progressives Congress on Friday urged President Bola Tinubu not to fall for the recent show of support by some loyalists of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, saying it was an attempt to sway him into buying their loyalty.

A former minister of Transport and leader of Rivers chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, Abiye Sekibo, had on Thursday led former PDP national chairman, Uche Secondus and some party chieftains to pledge support for the President and his policies at a press conference in Port Harcourt.

Other members of the delegation included former governorship aspirant, Celestine Omehia, and former lawmaker, Austin Opara.

They also expressed their displeasure at the direction of events unfolding in the state politically, asking the President to caution ex-governor and current Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike.

Reacting via a press conference at the party national secretariat in Abuja on Friday, Chairman of Rivers APC, Tony Okocha, told newsmen that he found laughable that people like Sekibo and Secondus, who once described the president with unprintable names in the build-up to the 2023 presidential election, could be paying lip service to warm their way into his (Tinubu’s) heart.

While describing them as being clever by half, Okocha described them as “unrepentant PDP praise singers” who could never forgive him and Wike following the manner they made Atiku to lose the last election.

He said, “The undeniable fact remains that all those who lined up on that table are still ardent believers of Atiku Abubakar and lucidly introduced themselves as unrepentant leaders of Atiku’s 2023 Presidential Campaign in Rivers State.

“Of course, it follows therefore that anyone whose action or inaction contributed to their dangerous fall is inadvertently their sworn enemy. No wonder, they are surreptitiously targeting to cut out a pound of flesh from the minister of the FCT.”
