CROSS RIVERS –
An appeal rejecting the newly re-deployed Resident Electoral Commissioner –REC, for Cross River State, Mr. Sylvester Okey, has been forwarded to the Independent Electoral Commission –INEC.
National Vice-Chairman South- South zone of the All Progressives Congress –APC, Hilliard Eta who made the appeal in Calabar Sunday, urged INEC to repost Okey to another state in the interest of peace.
Eta said during a chat with journalist in Calabar that the APC does not have confidence in the credibility of Mr. Okey due to his past record.
The APC vice-chairman also alleged that the reposted commissioner is a card-carrying member of the Peoples Democratic Party –PDP.
His words: “We dare say and want Mr. Sylvester Okey to take us to court by saying that he is a card-carrying member of PDP and we don’t want him in our state except the President and the INEC Chairman are trying to tell us that they have posted a PDP person to come and do their bidding.”
