All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State stated explicitly that Lauretta Onochie, presidential media aide, is not a member of the party.
On Sunday, Cyprian Ashibuogu signed a communique with Clement Ozegbe and Nkem Osu. The party also warned the Senate not to ignore petitions and protests against Onochie’s nomination.
“She is a technocrat and has been part of us. She is not a card-carrying member of our Party.”
Onochie was elected to be a commissioner of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Delta state. She is a strong supporter and partisan of the APC, which has led to serious opposition to her nomination.
During her screening at Senate, she disclosed that she had stopped being a member of the party in 2019.
A petition from a senatorial District in Delta State, which had vehemently opposed her nomination, was also dismissed by the APC as false.
