2019: APC suspends Gov. Okorocha over alleged anti-party activities

By Abiola David

The Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended Governor Rochas Okorocha from the party over alleged anti-party activities.

Okorocha’s suspension came after he was seen campaigning for his Son in-law, Uche Nwosu, who is the governorship flag bearer of the Action Alliance (AA) during a campaign organised by the APC with President Muhammad Buhari’s, Aisha in attendance.

While announcing the suspension on Thursday in Owerri, the Caretaker Committee Chairman of the party in the state Prince Marcellinus Nlemigbo, said that a letter conveying the message has been sent to the National Chairman of the party.

He said, “A letter by the Imo State chapter of the APC signed by the chairman conveyed the suspension to the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole.

“We regretted that Okorocha who is the party’s candidate for Imo West Senatorial District has vowed to undermine the APC and its electoral interest,” he added.

He further noted that the reason for the governor’s suspension was to save the party from “machinations of Okorocha”, adding that, their prayer is that by his suspension he takes final decision and fully move to his party, the Action Alliance (AA).”
