The All Progressives Congress, APC, has suspended Senator Rochas Okorocha over anti-party activities, 9NEWS NIGERIA reports.
In a statement made available to 9NEWS NIGERIA, the ruling party, APC said Rochas Okorocha has been engaging in anti-party activities for a long time.
9NEWS NIGERIA reports that the former governor of Imo State, Senator Rochas Okorocha earlier said that he gave the name: All Progressives Congress (APC) to the ruling party.
The Senator and Presidential hopeful, who spoke at the National Secretariat of the party in Abuja on Tuesday when he led the Imo APC pioneer group to meet with members of the Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, also posited that any Congress conducted in Imo State outside the Chief Daniel Nwafor-led state caretaker executive would be illegal.
According to him, Nwafor Exco has won all the cases against its dissolution to the Appeal Court and has not been overturned.
Okorocha, who was in the company of Sen. Ifeanyi Ararume, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, Sir Jude Ejiogu, Hon. Pascual Obi, Hon. Ugonna Ozuruigbo, Hon Kingsley Uju, Hon. Dan Nwafor, Dr. Chidinma Uwajimogu, Barr. Steve Asimobi, Chief Stanley Nzekwe, amongst others, decried the treatment the pioneer APC members are receiving in Imo State.
He called on the Caretaker Committee to make sure that the party was restored back to its dignity in the state.
