Imo State governor, Rochas Okorocha has made a mockery of his suspension from the All Progressives Congress (APC) by saying he has also sacked the party chairman, Adams Oshiomhole for anti-party activities.
Reacting to his suspension from the ruling party by the national working committee (NWC) of the party led by Oshiomhole, Okorocha said on Channels Television on Sunday that the chairman lacked the power to suspend him.
He boasted that, as a founder of the APC, he could say authoritatively that Oshiohmole was involved in anti-party activities.
The governor said, “I just heard from media reports that I have been suspended from the party (APC). I think Adams is seeking for relevance and attention,” he said.
“He doesn’t have such powers to remove somebody without following due process. I think Adams is the biggest player of anti-party in APC. The man has simply destroyed the party to a great extent.
“So, I have sacked him from the party. If he thinks he can just stand up and say he has suspended me from the party I founded, without following the due process, in the same manner, I have sacked him from the party.
“The candidate that Oshiohmole imposed on the party in Imo State lost his votes for the Presidential election and all the members of the coalition in Imo State worked for PDP.”
The NWC of the APC has on Friday suspended Ibikunle Governor ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State and Okorocha for “anti-party activities and asked the national executive committee (NEC) to expel the two “recalcitrant” governors from the party.
