The Anambra state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has sacked its publicity secretary, Okelo Madukaife for congratulating Anambra governor-elect, Professor Chukwuma Charles Soludo of APGA.
The state chairman of the party, Basil Ejidike announced the sack of Madukaife at a press conference in Awka, the Anambra state capital on Sunday, November 14.
He said Madukaife who was suspended in June this year had continued to parade himself as the public secretary to the extent that he appeared on national television recently to congratulate the Soludo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).
“Okelo was suspended in June this year. We were surprised that he has continued to parade himself as the publicity secretary of the party. That ought not to be.
“On behalf of APC Anambra state, we wish to clearly state that Okelo Madukaife is no longer a member of our party and so he can’t be or function as the publicity secretary of our party in the state.
“Anybody dealing with him as a member of APC or publicity secretary of the party is doing so at their own risk.
“We wish to state categorically that as far as the Anambra governorship poll is concerned, we have not congratulated anybody.
“But we are aware that since June, he has been raining abuses on our party. He has been replaced by assistant publicity secretary, Nonso Chinwuba.”
