In response to him,
the letter was signed by the group’s chief, Prof. David Pam Yakubu and addressed to the state Chairman of APC, Chief Emeka Beke.
The letter additional states that, “We subsequently solicit your unflinching help for the Chairman and the complete Vanguard in your State in direction of efficiently canvassing for grassroots help for Tinubu/Shettima ticket for the 2023 Basic elections”.

“Recognizing a critic and archenemy of the social gathering to coordinate an APC affairs within the State is just not solely an insult however a joke taken too far and subsequently unacceptable,” Eze stated.
Chief Eze careworn: “That the Rivers APC as a political household has suffered a lot within the arms of Tony Okocha and his fellow collaborators and subsequently, it’s unimaginable to introduce him into an APC affair in Rivers state.
“The social gathering has no enterprise with Tony Okocha, an evil collaborator who colluded with Senator Abe and others to frustrate the social gathering and make sure that it by no means participated within the 2019 normal elections in Rivers state,” he acknowledged.
He recalled that Tony Okocha’s final effort at mobilizing his group was over the last Congress of the social gathering the place he mobilised his group to the APC state headquarters to allegedly disrupt the Congress of the social gathering.
He stated Okocha by no means noticed any good factor in Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi who’s the Chief of the social gathering within the area so appointing such a personality to coordinate one of many main actions of the social gathering is just not solely an insult however so as to add salt to our damage.
“On this regard if the management of Bola Ahmed Tinubu Solidarity Vanguard BATS-Vanguard, is really critical about searching for the assistance of the social gathering and her members in Rivers State, Eze stated it should revert to the social gathering management to approve a real and creditable member of the social gathering to hold out such essential and vital perform,” Eze acknowledged.
