Otuaro bonafide party member, Delta APC replies detractors 


The Delta state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has dismissed insinuations that the new administrator of the Presidential Amnesty Programme, Dr Dennis Otuaro, is not a member of the party in the state. A statement issued by the party Thursday said Otuaro is not just a bonafide member of the APC in the state but also a key financier and supporter of the party.

The statement was jointly signed by the state secretary, Surveyor Akarogbe Peter, Delta South Senatorial chairman, Prince Austin Oribioye, state auditor, Hon. Amabiri Paul Azorbo, Youth leader, Hon. Napoleon Kenerekedi and welfare secretary, Hon. Ayu Hoplyn.

“We the executive members of APC in Delta South wish to state without equivocation that Chief Dr Dennis Otuaro, is a bonafide card-carrying member of our party, the APC, who has made outstanding sacrifices and contributions to the party since 2019. His contribution in the last general election in Delta state cannot be swept away by mischief-makers,”  it stated.

The party also stated that it was unaware of the group that published an advertorial in some newspapers alleging that Otuaro is not a member of the Delta APC.

 The party noted that the authors of the said advertorial are not members of the APC, neither are they known to the party. 

  “This group is not known to the APC in Delta South and indeed the entire state. Also, the supposed coordinator, Comrade, Clever Fomana and secretary, Luke F Orotoma, are non-existent characters created by disgruntled people to cause unnecessary distraction in our party,” the party said.

The party urged genuine party members in the state and stakeholders in the region to support the new administrator, stating that “that should be everyone’s concern and interest right now, rather than petty squabbles over previous elections.”
