The Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, who is accused of anti-party activities, has been removed as the state coordinator of the campaign council by the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The decision followed the recommendation of the disciplinary committee set up by the Imo APC over allegations of anti-party activities levelled against the governor and others.
Recall that Mr. Okorocha has been working to realize the governorship ambition of his for his son-in-law, Mr. Uche Nwosu, who is the candidate of the Action Alliance – against the APC candidate, Senator Hope Uzodinma.
Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the APC National Publicity Secretary said on Sunday that Governor Okorocha could not be part of the party’s strategic meetings since he had publicly worked against the party’s interest.
He said: “The APC had directed governors to take over the campaign of the party in the state.
“Where it has no governor, it directed governorship candidate to take over. Since Okorocha has displayed anti-party traits, you can’t expect him to be part of our strategic meetings again.”
