AAC Suspends Sowore, Eight Others

The African Action Congress has announced the suspension of its National Chairman and presidential candidate in the 2019 general election, Omoyele Sowore; and eight others, including its Deputy National Chairman (South West), Ogunlana Rotimi Jacob, for a period of six months over alleged anti-party activities.

Consequently, Dr. Leonard Ezenwa, erthswhile National Secretary has been appointed acting National Chairman, while Abayomi Francis Olufemi has been named Deputy National Chairman.

A member of the AAC National Executive Committee, Mazi Okwy Ibeh, who read the resolution of the party to journalists in Abuja, premised the party’s decision against Sowore, Publisher of Saharareporters; and his executive, on alleged anti-party activities, corruption and failure to call for the statutory national Executive Committee Meeting.

He said the allegation bordered “particularly on inflow of illegal foreign funds into the party and personally retaining same in contravention of Section 225 (3)(4) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), together with eight others.”

But when contacted, the Head of Media and Public Relations, Sowore Campaign Organisation, Rachel Onamusi-Kpiasi,  said “Leonard (Ezenwa) has been suspended from the party for anti-party activities for months and is in no position to suspend the national chairman;” adding, “I will send a fully formed press release shortly.”
