Senator Rochas Okorocha of the APC has been suspended from the party for anti-party activities and insulting President Muhammadu Buhari.
According to a letter received by Peoples Gazette from the party’s Imo State chapter dated July 12, 2021, Mr Rochas was suspended for anti-party activity.
“This is to inform you that the All Progressives Congress (APC) Party’s National Working Committee (NWC) has ratified your suspension by the Imo State Chapter of our great party for anti-party activities,” the letter said.
The ruling party accused Mr Rochas of “Continuous discrete meetings with the opposition party both at the state and national level, working in opposition to the APC-led government in Imo state, and flagrant public abuse on the person and office of the President, Federal Republic of Nigeria (an APC-led government).
“This 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 the party’s constitution,” the APC said.
