APC Imo Committee Removes Okorocha As Campaign Coordinator
This is coming few days after the Mathew Omegara chaired committee summoned Okorocha and six others to appear before it.
Okorocha’s removal as campaign coordinator was confirmed by the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu.
He disclosed that the party’s decision followed the recommendation of the disciplinary committee set up by the Imo APC over allegations of anti-party activities leveled against the governor and others.
According to Punch, he said: “What has happened in Imo shows that the APC means business. Once they have complied with all the rules, no problem. When they bring the recommendation to the NWC, we will look at it.”
“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.”
“The party should be appreciated that it is possible to query a governor and recommend him for suspension,” he added.
