The All Progressive Congress Party has initiated moves to suspend Rochas Okorocha over the anti party activities he allegedly engaged.
According to source, Governor Okorocha’s spokesman, Mr. Sam Onwuemeodo, dismissed the claim yesterday, describing it as a rumour that had been in circulation for the past five months.
Okorocha have been at loggerheads with the Adams Oshiomhole-led NWC, following their differences over the governors’ insistence on the emergence of their preferred choices as APC governorship candidates in Imo and Ogun states.
Okorocha had backed his son-in-law, Mr. Uche Nwosu, as his successor, while Amosun backed a member of the House of Representatives, Adekunle Akinlade, as his successor. However, their failure to realise the goal of making them APC flag bearers forced them to other party platforms.
The brickbat between Okorocha and Oshiomhole was despite the fact that Okorocha was one of the strongest backers of Oshiomhole’s emergence as national chairman. Following his failure to emerge as APC governorship candidate, Nwosu was crowned as the governorship candidate of Action Alliance, AA, a party conceived by Okorocha 10 years ago to pursue his onetime presidential ambition.
The move to suspend Okorocha, Vanguard gathered, yesterday, is being spearheaded by Imo State chapter of the party and a reasonable proportion of the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, is now disposed towards it.
The ratification of the move would, however, be given by the National Executive Committee, NEC.Got a story? send it to us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
