The Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress on Saturday called on the National Chairman of the party , Adams Oshiomhole , to tender his resignation letter for suspending the governors of Imo and Ogun states .At a press conference in Owerri , the APC chairman in the state , Daniel Nwafor , said that the suspension of Governors Rochas Okorocha and Ibikunle Amosun was null and void .
Saying that the state chapter of the APC would not honour the “ purported suspension ” of Okorocha from APC, Nwafor said that the former governor of Edo state had outlived his usefulness in APC.
Describing Oshiomhole as a man who had no respect for the rule of law , Nwafor said that the APC national chairman was known for not obeying court orders and judgments.
According to Nwafor , the suspension of Okorocha did not follow due process .
He said that according to the APC constitution, the suspension of any member starts from the ward level and not from the National working committee .

Nwafor said “ I am here with the APC chairman from Ogboko ward where the governor hails from . There was no letter from the NWC to him to query the governor for any offence . The truth is that Oshiomhole is a man who has no respect for rule of law . He has a penchant for disobeying valid court judgments and orders .
“ We demand his immediate resignation from APC. Adams Oshiomhole has outlived his usefulness in APC. As a party , we will not honour that purported suspension . It is null and void and of no effect . Governor Rochas Okorocha remains the leader of APC in Imo state . ”
The state chairman said that APC in the state had no governorship candidate , even as he maintained that the APC governorship candidate in the state , Senator Hope Uzodinma , was not known by the party .
He said that available records by the party showed that Uzodinma was not a registered member of APC in his ward in Oru East Local Government Area of the state .DON'T MISS: Download Edujandon.com News app and get latest news updates directly to your phone!
