Why we want Okorocha, Amosun out of our party-APC reveals

The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has given reasons it did not only suspend Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun, and Rochas Okorocha, his Imo counterpart, but also wants them expelled from the party.

The party in a statement on Friday, by its national spokesman, Lanre Issa-Onilu, explained that the two governors have been engaging in anti-party activities

Issa-Onilu said Osita Okechukwu, director-general of the Voice of Nigeria (VON), and Usani Usani, minister of Niger Delta affairs, were also being suspended for same purpose.

He further revealed that the Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu, was also queried for alleged anti-party activities.

“The national working committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended the Governor of Ogun state, Ibikunle Amosun and the Imo state governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha for anti-party activities,” he said in a statement.

“The NWC has also taken a decision to recommend the expulsion of the suspended individuals to the national executive committee (NEC) of the party.

“The NWC has also issued a query to the governor of Ondo state, Rotimi Akeredolu over his glaring anti-party activities, which greatly affected the fortunes of our candidates in the recently-conducted presidential and national assembly elections in the state.

“The party reviewed the serial anti-party activities of the concerned individuals before and during the last presidential and national assembly elections in their respective states and resolved to enforce party discipline in line with our constitution.

“The NWC noted how the suspended members have continued to campaign openly for other parties and candidates that are unknown to our great party, even while they have constituted themselves to opposition to APC candidates in their respective states.

“We wish to reiterate that any member of our party who takes any action solely or in line with the directives of the suspended members to undermine our party’s candidates in the coming governorship and House of Assembly elections would face disciplinary actions,” the statement read.

Issa-Onilu, therefore asked members of APC not to heed to directives of the suspended members.

Okorocha and Amosun are working to ensure APC governorship candidates in their respective states are defeated in the coming March 9 governorship and House of Assembly elections.

While Okorocha is backing his Chief of Staff and son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, who is the governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) to be his successor in Imo, Amosun is doing everything to ensure his anointed governorship candidate of Allied People’s Movement (APM) wins
