Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has declared that he has sacked the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, for “anti-party activities”.
The National Working Committee of the APC, on Friday had suspended Okorocha, along with Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State; the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Usani Uguru; and the Director-General of the Voice of Nigeria, Osita Okechukwu.
But Okorocha, during an interview on Sunday Politics on Channels Television, said Oshiomhole did not have the power to remove a party member.
“I just heard media reports that I’ve been suspended from the party. I think Adams is seeking relevance and looking for attention. He doesn’t have such powers to remove somebody without following the due process. If he is joking, which I think he is, I also have decided to sack him myself.
“So, I have sacked him from the party. If he thinks he can just stand up and say he has suspended me from the party I founded, without following the due process, in the same manner, I have sacked him from the party.
“I learnt that the reasons he adduced for my being suspended from the party is for anti-party reasons. I think Adams is the biggest player of anti-party activities in the APC. The man has simply destroyed the party to a great extent,” he said.
