Abuja - The Rivers State chapter of the
People's Democratic Party (PDP) said it had uncovered the true identity of
Charles Kaye Okoye.
He is said to have claimed to be a staff of the
Independent National Electoral Commission.
Okoye has been used by the rival All Progressives
Congress as a witness at the Rivers State Governorship Election Tribunal
sitting in Abuja.
PDP claimed he had been confirmed as a card-carrying
member of the APC and also on the pay roll of the former Governor of the State,
The PDP alleged that more interactions with Okoye on the
social media, particularly his Facebook postings had further exposed his
membership of APC in Rivers State and under the sponsorship of Amaechi to lie
In one of the series of postings on Facebook, Okoye had
earlier allegedly admitted that he was available for rewards and bribes by the

His said later posting on August 6, 2015, also indicated
that the expected payment had been made, justifying the assignment.
“Our Party Promises Nigerians change but the change we
promised and which Nigerians desire so much cannot be achieved if we allow the
resources that belong to all Nigerians to be misappropriated by a few."
PDP alleged Okoye went further in his posting on August
28, 2015, to praise former Governor Amaechi, alleging that he (Amaechi) would
have been a dead man if Jonathan had won the election.
PDP further called on the general public not to take any
of the claims by the APC and its sponsored witnesses at the Tribunal seriously.
"They are all lies and calculated efforts to
truncate good governance in the State, which will fail woefully."
Comment could not be obtained from APC or Okoye
