Earlier today, it was reported that the founding national chairman and the presidential candidate of the Action Alliance Congress, AAC, Mr. Omoyele Sowore has been suspended by the National Executive Committee, NEC, of the party for financial misconduct and his failure to convene the constitutionally backed up quarterly meeting of the party.
The NEC of the party went ahead to appoint a replacement of Mr Sowore in the person of Mr. Leonard Ezenwa.
In a swift reaction, Omoyele Sowore responded by suspending the persons that announced his suspension including the man nominated to take over his position as the nation chairman of the party.
In a statement signed by Omoyele Sowore, he said that the persons that signed his purported suspension are no longer memebers of the party as they have been suspended by the party .
His exact words;
“It has come to the notice of the office of the Chairman of the African Action Congress that a group of suspended members, induced by financial reasons and anti-progressive politics, gathered in Abuja today, 13th May, 2019, and purportedly held a NEC meeting.
“These members, led by Leonard Nzenwa, former national secretary, who was suspended for financial impropriety and anti-party activities, have demonstrated by their actions that they have never been, and have never shared, the core beliefs that those of us in the African Action Congress hold.
“Leonard Nzenwa is hereby expelled from the party, and the misguided individuals who participated in the Abuja meeting are suspended from the party until investigations reveal the extent of their involvement.”
