APC Suspends Amosun, Okorocha


The national working committee, NWC, of the All Progressives Congress, APC, has suspended the governors of Ogun and Imo states, Ibikunle Amosun and Rochas Okorocha over anti-party activities.

APC took the decision at its National Working Committee meeting held on Friday in Abuja.
The NWC of the party further recommended the expulsion of the duo from the party for brazen anti-party activities.
Both governors are supporting different candidates for the governorship election in their states.
Okorocha, who won a Senate seat as APC candidate, is backing his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu campaigning for Imo governor as candidate of Action Alliance.
Amosun, who also won a Senate seat as APC senator last week, is also supporting a member of the House of Representatives, Abdulkadir Akinlade, as governor as a member of the Allied Peoples Movement.
In Imo, APC has Senator Hope Uzodinma as its governorship candidate. Prince Dapo Abiodun is the candidate in Ogun.
Amosun was roundly criticised in February when he flooded an APC presidential rally in Abeokuta with APM supporters. The incident almost went awry as the APM mob nearly stoned President Muhammadu Buhari.

Also suspended are the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Usani Uguru and the Director -General of the Voice of Nigeria, Osita Okechukwu.
