The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has suspended former Imo state governor, Senator Rochas Okorocha.
A suspension letter dated July 12, 2021 and signed by Mai Mala Buni and John Akpanudoedehe, national chairman and secretary of the APC caretaker committee, said he was suspended for anti-party activities.
According to the letter, the decision to suspend the senator representing Imo west was in line with the Imo state chapter of the party resolution and results from the former governor’s involvement in “anti-party activities.”
Okorocha was also accused of abusing the office and person of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The letter addressed to Okorocha read;
“This is to communicate to you, the National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Party ratification of your suspension by the Imo State Chapter of our great party for anti-party activities.
“The suspension follows after the recommendation by the Imo State Disciplinary Committee set up to investigate allegations of gross anti-party activities against you, which is in line with Article 21 (B) I-VI of our party’s constitution.
“Below are the anti-party activities on which the investigation and subsequent suspension were relied upon. Continuous, discrete meetings with the opposition party both at the state and national level.
“Flagrant public abuse on the person and office of the President, Republic of Nigeria (An APC-led government).”
