UPDATED: AAC Suspends Sowore As National Chairman

When A Country Is Rotten, You Cannot Fix It By Going To The Local Govt – Sowore

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the African Action Congress (AAC) has suspended Omoyele Sowore as the National Chairman of the party.

This was announced at the party’s NEC meeting in Abuja, on Monday.

Sowore according to the NEC is being suspended for alleged anti-party activities, failure to convene NEC meeting and financial misappropriation.

A new acting national chairman, Leonard Nzenwa, has immediately been sworn-in.

The committee also announced that the suspension of Sowore and other members of his executive took effect from March 27 and it is to last for six months except overturned by a National Convention of the party.

In reaction, Sowore in a statement on Monday announced the suspension of top members of the party and expulsion of Nzenwa.

In the statement, which he personally signed as “national chairman’ of the party, Sowore described those suspended as “misguided individuals”.

“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,” the statement read.

“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,” the statement read in part.

  34. The PDP said that its premise is based on the fact that a judicial officer of Bulkachuwa’s standing “must not only be above board but be seen to be above board at all times”.
