Why Governor Rochas Okorocha Was Suspended By Imo State APC

Senator Rochas

Gross anti-party activities have been identified as the reason why Imo state governor, Rochas Okorocha, was suspended by the state’s All progressive Congress (APC).

Okorocha’s suspension was announced on Thursday, January 18, as the party said he was seen campaigning for his son-in-law, a member of Action Alliance, during an APC campaign rally in the state.

The governor reportedly did this without recourse to Aisha Buhari, the wife of the president, who was present at the rally. A faction of the party in the state that suspended Okorocha said a committee was set up to investigate him and claimed his actions are in line with Article 21 (B) I-VI of the APC Constitution (October 2014 as amended).

The Imo State Caretaker Committee Chairman of the party, Prince Marcellinus Nlemigbo, said that a letter conveying the message has been sent to the National Chairman of the party.

 

“A letter by the Imo State chapter of the APC signed by the chairman conveyed the suspension to the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole. We regretted that Okorocha who is the party’s candidate for Imo West Senatorial District has vowed to undermine the APC and its electoral interest,” he said.

Nlemigbo added that the decision was to save the party from the “machinations of Okorocha”, with the expulsion giving him time so that he can fully move to his party, the Action Alliance (AA).”

Oshiomole Must Go – APC Young Stakeholders

Published

DG APC

The APC Young Stakeholders who protested at the Party Secretariat today has called on the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress Mr. Adams Oshiomole to forsake his position, adding that “Enough is enough! We are tired of the lackadaisical and weak leadership this man has given, he must go!”

The Convener of APC Young Stakeholders, Ahmed Adamu in a statement today enumerated the sins of Oshiomole as follows:

– Micromanaging the Party and weakening the other organs of the party: Oshiomole has made the APC a one man show, that borders around himself and himself alone. Nothing else works in the party without his control. The other organs of the party have become weak. From the secretariat, to the youth wing, all are dead, because he has made the party revolve around him.

 

– Zero accountability: The party has raised Billions and Billions of Naira from the sale of forms during the 2019 elections. Up to date, Oshiomole has not been able to account for these moneys, neither has he been able to show anything of worth in which he has spent the money on.

– Inability to manage internal crisis: Oshiomole has shown lack of leadership capacity to manage the internal issues of the party. While it is not new that there would be disagreements within the party, effective and determined leadership would ordinarily bring everyone together. These qualities, Adams Oshiomole lacks. Rather than be a unifier he has been a divider of the party. He has caused needless friction among members that has led to so much hate and anger in the party.

 

– Loss of States: Due to the incompetence of the Party Chairman, Adams Oshiomole, the Party has been on a loosing streak. He has created a lot of division in the states and through sharp practices encouraged by him, he has allowed fraud divide the party in states. This has led us to unfortunate losses in states. Under the incompetence of Oshiomole, we have lost Zamfara, Bacuhi, Sokoto, Adamawa, Benue and Oyo States. His recklessness and inability to manage the party is looking like we are up for more losses again.

– The party has become more divided under Adams Oshiomole. Members have been set against each other to become enemies and he has failed to provide the unifying leadership needed.

 

– The party has become ideologically directionless under Adams Oshiomole. He has refused to entertain any scholarly seminars, intellectual conferences to boost the party’s policy-making and ideological growth.

 

– The party today is home to several unresolved disputes – due to his immaturity and inability to provide leadership.

 

– Issues of Payment for Ticket: Several members of the party were defrauded by proxies of Adams Oshiomole who had collected money from him with the promise that they would be secured tickets and victories at the primaries. His proxies collected these moneys and it turned out that they were defrauded with no tickets.

 

Signed: Ahmed Adamu
