All Progressives Congress (APC) has announced the suspension of the Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, and his Imo counterpart, Rochas Okorocha.

The duo were suspended for alleged anti-party activities at the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting held on Friday, March 1 in Abuja.

The committee further recommended the expulsion of both governors from the party.

The suspension comes as a result of the different situations in Ogun and Imo states with the duo supporting candidates who aren’t from the APC for the governorship election in their states.

Eze Felicitates APC, Uzodinma, as Apex Court Throws Ihedioha, PDP out of Douglass House

…Commends Buhari over Judicial Independence,

,,,,,Describes Amaechi as a Unifier, Catalyst for National Development

As legal experts, commentators, political watchers, opinion leaders and even laymen continue to make their minds bare on the Supreme Court Judgement of Tuesday, 14 January 2020, which sacked the PDP-led government in Imo State and declared candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Senator Hope Uzodinma, as winner and duly elected governor of the state, a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress and former National Publicity Secretary of the defunct New Peoples Democratic Party (nPDP), Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, has felicitated the new state governor, HE., Senator Hope Uzodinma, the APC family and the entire good people of Imo state over the ruling.

Describing the verdict as one of the best things that has happened to the South East States, the party chief said Imo is set to hive a sigh of relief from the highhandedness and maladministration of the sacked government which had for the few days it held sway, kept the state in the dark and deprived the people meaningful and purposeful governance.

In a statement made available to media houses, Chief Eze said Senator Uzodinma is efficiently equipped with the requisite leadership tools to drive genuine development in Imo state and turn her into a beacon of all possibilities and all that is good for all mankind.

While commending the leadership and members of the All Progressives Congress in Imo state for their peaceful disposition in the face of provocations, especially the illegal overthrow of duly elected local government council chairmen in the state by the ex-PDP government, Chief Eze said God has once again shown that He rules in the affairs of men through the Supreme Court Judgement which added credence and affirmed the claims of  Uzodinma and the All Progressives Congress.

Eze tasked the people of the S’East state to give maximum support to Sen. Uzondinma as he assumes office as the executive governor of Imo state, opining that the APC is ready to turn the state into a development haven.

He counselled those misinterpreting the judgement and misinforming and inciting the public to do themselves some good, by reaching out to copies of the verdict and furnish themselves with the necessary information for proper understanding of the courts reasoning for arriving at the decision, averring that such attitude is unwholesome and contrary to every recognised standards of civilised behaviours, international ethics and decorum.

Eze opines that with IMO and Bayelsa States in APC kitty the dream of taking the South South and South East regions back to the centre is becoming very feasible come 2023. I therefore plead with His Excellency, Senator Hope Uzodinma to discard the idea of any form of probe of the past administrations while pursuing his goal and vision of reconstruction, rehabilitation and recovery but most importantly unite all the Imolites and carry along all sections of the State. Any form of probe will be a distraction to this government as we have to bring smiles to the faces of Imolites as soon as possible.

Chief Eze, a media stalwart, commended the Nigerian government under the headship of President Mohammadu Buhari, for giving the judiciary a free hand to operate. He said the judiciary has faired better under the APC government and will only improve in the business of justice delivery for public good.

While hailing the Minister of Transportation, Rt. Hon. Chibuike Amaechi for making the country proud in his uncommon drive for national development, Eze tasked S’South and S’East leaders to unite and project a common front for national integration. He described Rt. Hon. Amaechi as the pride and light of the Southern region who must be supported to do more for the common good of the two regions. He commended the efforts of the Transportation Minister towards the victory of the APC in Bayelsa and again, in Imo state.
