The All Progressives Congress has suspended the Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun; and his Imo counterpart, Rochas Okorocha.
The two men were suspended for alleged anti-party activities at the National Working Committee meeting held on Friday in Abuja. The decision was reached at the NWC meeting in Abuja on Friday.
The meeting is still in session as of the time of filing this report.
The committee also recommended the governors expulsion from the party. Also suspended are the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Usani Uguru; and the Director General of Voice of Nigeria, Osita Okechukwu.
Governor Okorocha contested for the Imo West Senatorial District seat while Governor Amosun contested that of Ogun Central in the just-concluded elections.
Both governors won the poll in their states, although the returning officer in Imo State said he declared Okorocha the winner “under duress”.
Okorocha is supporting his son-in-law and candidate of the Action Alliance (AA) in Imo, Uche Nwosu, to succeed him as governor, as against the APC candidate, Senator Hope Uzodinma.
On his part, Amosun is against the candidature of APC’s Dapo Abiodun in Ogun and is giving his support to the candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), Adekunle Akinlade.
Before he won the election, President Muhammadu Buhari had during his campaign visited Imo and Ogun States where some drama played out over the choice of candidates.
The atmosphere was tense at the rally in Ogun State where some supporters allegedly loyal to APM pelted the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole, while he was addressing the gathering, forcing him to end his speech abruptly.
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had mocked the APC following the incident, while the ruling party vowed to sanction Governor Amosun after the elections.
