The national leadership of Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) has disowned one Lucky Okorakpa parading himself as the Delta state chairman of the party, accusing him of impersonation.

The Party reacting to a petition against the senior political adviser to governor of the State, Mr. Festus Ochonogor, state chairman of Inter-Party Advisory Council (IPAC), Mr. Frank Igwebuike and the state chairman of Accord Party, Mr. David Ashikodi, addressed to the governor, Mr. Ifeanyi Okowa, with the Lucky Okorakpa, joining other political party chairmen to sign as the Delta state chairman of the PRP, noted that the current state chairman of the party is Mr. Paul Otu.

In a statement unbehalf of the national chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP), Alhaji Balarabe Musa, titled “Impersonation By Lucky Okorakpa As Delta State Chairman Peoples Redemption Party (PRP)”, signed by National Official and immediate past Delta State Chairman of PRP, Comrade Emmanuel Odafe Igbini and obtained by HardReporters, disassociated its membership of IPAC.

According to the statement “Ordinarily PRP would not have reacted to the protest letter or to other activities of political parties in the state but is compelled to do so because the letter made reference to the party as signatory to the letter and more worrisome was the fact that these persons claimed that one Mr. Lucky Okorakpa is the Delta State Chairman of Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).”

The party stated unequivocally that Mr. Okorakpa is an impostor and never known to the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP).

“The current Delta State Chairman of Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) is Mr. Paul Otu. Mr Lucky Okorakpa is an impostor and never known to the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP). The Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) is not and will not be a member of IPAC. Our Party remains a member of Conference of Nigerian Political Parties (CNPP) which is under the leadership of the national chairman of PRP, His Excellency, Alhaji Balarabe Musa.

“Further, from the content of the protest letter, these reported Delta State chairmen of these political parties have been enjoying some financial assistance and supports from the Delta State government and sadly with this impostor, Mr Lucky Okorakpo, as beneficiary. This is very unfortunate and a case of criminal impersonation to defraud Delta State government using the name of Peoples Redemption Party.

“We are surprised that Delta State Government would embark on disbursement of funds belonging to the people of Delta State to some persons impersonating Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) without first verifying from the National Secretariat of Peoples Redemption Party and or INEC, the names of Delta State Executive Officers of PRP.

“PRP is consistently known to be a political party with high level of integrity and credibility about forty years now. We are therefore using this opportunity to strongly advise the Delta State government, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Delta State and the general public to henceforth disregard Mr. lucky Okorakpo as State Chairman or member of PRP. The Delta State Chairman of PRP is Mr Paul Otu.

“If in doubt, clarification regarding the activities of PRP in Delta State should be obtained from the National Secretariat of PRP, Abuja. Finally, we want to warn that if Mr. Lucky Okorakpa or any unauthorized person or group of persons impersonate our party for any reason whatsoever, we shall not hesitate to take lawful action to institute criminal charges of impersonation and fraud.” statement threatened.
