More drama is unfolding in the African Action Congress (AAC) as the it seems the centre can no longer hold and everything is therefore falling apart.
The party unfortunately has been in the news quite recently for all of the wrong reasons.
First it was the Rivers State gubernatorial election drama where the Minister of Transporattion, Rotimi Amaechi had declared few days to the election, the adoption of the party’s gubernatorial candidate as the official party being supported by the ruling All Progressives Congress for the election after the party eventually lost in the bid to have its candidate fielded for the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Omoyele Sowore, embattled national chairman of the African Action Congress (AAC) has announced the suspension of Leonard Ezenwa, the former party secretary for anti-party activities.
The suspension is contained in a press statement signed by Omoyele Sowore, chairman of the party on Monday.
Ezenwa was earlier in the day announced as the new national chairman after the party said it had suspended Sowore for alleged corruption.
Sowore said: “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.”
