Abuja - The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Bayelsa State has demanded the resignation of the Minister of State for Agriculture, Heineken Lokpobiri.
The party in the state said Lokpobiri is not representing its interest at the federal level.
The state Chairman of the party, Timipa Orunimighe, stated this at a press conference at the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja on Wednesday.
Orunimighe, who was flanked by members of the party’s state executive committee members, said the minister is not in tune with the policies and programmes of the APC administration.

The party leaders also dissociated themselves from a letter purportedly written by ex-governor of the state, Timipre Sylva, seeking federal appointments.
They alleged that Sylva, who is regarded as a party leader in the state, had arrogated to himself power that he did not possess.
They accused Sylva of trading with slots allocated to the state chapter of the party.
