The party also removed the wife of the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu’, Bianca Ojukwu as a member, alongside others.
The decisions were taken on Tuesday in Awka as the party held its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, which followed the expiration of the four-year term of the members of the BOT.
Labaran Maku, who is the National Secretary of APGA, made this known as he spoke to newsmen on Tuesday after the meeting disclosed that new BOT members to replace Obiano and Ojukwu were going to be nominated ahead of the National Convention of the party for ratification.
According to him, “The party has picked May 31 as for its National convention at the Prof Dora Akunyili women development centre in Awka, Anambra state
“The Ward and Local Government Congresses of the party would hold on the 19th and 21st of May, followed by the State and Zonal congresses on the 23rd of May.”
