The Bayelsa State branch of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has expelled two members of the party and suspended seven others for anti-party activities.

This was disclosed on Monday, June 15, 2015, by the APC Secretary in the state, Marlin Daniel during a press conference.

The members who were expelled are a former Chairman of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Perekeme Kpodo and a former chieftain, Sunday Oputu.

“We want to make it clear that they are not members of the party. They have since been expelled. Kpodo was expelled when he allegedly said the APC was dead on arrival in the state. Oputu himself has not been part of the party. But we are surprised of recent that they have been calling party meetings, in what capacity, we do not know,” Daniel said.

“We want to alert the members of the general public to know that they are not part of the APC in Bayelsa State and that nobody should deal with them in that respect. We are aware that the re-emergence of these people was sponsored by the PDP government of Seriake Dickson,” he added.

The suspended members are Mr. Godwin Sidi, Fred Akamu, Rosemary Okeazi, Chief Livinus Opratapu, Harrow Zuokumo, Enoch Koripamo, and Christopher Abariowei.
