The national working committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended Ibikunle Amosu and Rochas Okorocha, governors of Ogun and Imo states receptively for alleged anti-party activities.
In a report monitored on TheCable NG, the NWC also recommended the expulsion of the two governors from APC to the national executive committee (NEC).
The NWC in a meeting on Friday in Abuja took the decision after allegations of “anti-party activities” were levelled against the two outgoing governors.
Amosun and Okorocha were both elected senators on the platform of APC on Saturday but they are backing their respective preferred governorship candidates from other opposition parties
The duo fell out with the leadership of the APC after failing to secure the gubernatorial tickets of the ruling party for their preferred candidates.
Okorocha had openly thrown his weight behind Uche Nwosu, his son-in-law since the latter failed to secure the APC governorship ticket.
Just like Okorocha, Governor Ibikunle Amosun had also made it known in the open that he will not support his party’s (APC) governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun but would rather ensure his preferred candidate Adekunle Akinlade, the gubernatorial candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM) wins the election.
