Taofik Gani, the Publicity Secretary of the party in Lagos State, noted that it has always been convenient for Cardinal Okogie to support the APC and condemn the PDP.
The party stated that there was nothing wrong in the former President seeking the blessings of the royal fathers as everybody in their dynasty is regarded as their subjects.
The party queried Okogie for not criticising the Oba of Lagos, Oba Rilwan Akiolu, for supporting a candidate of the APC during the last governorship election in Lagos State.
