The state chapter of the APC had already announced the suspension of the governor a few days ago.
However, the APC NWC confirmed the suspension on Sunday, premising its decision on Okorocha's anti-party activities.
Okorocha has vowed to work in the interest of the governorship ambition of his in-law, Uche Nwosu, who is the candidate of the Action Alliance (AA), against Hope Uzodinma of the APC.
Confirming the suspension, Issa-Onilu said: “The APC had directed governors to take over the campaign of the party in the state. Where it has no governor, it directed governorship candidate to take over. Since Okorocha has displayed anti-party traits, you can’t expect him to be part of our strategic meetings again.”
From Issa-Onilu's remarks, it is expected that Uzodinma will now head the campaign council in Imo State. SHARE THIS STORY USING ANY OF THE BUTTON BELOW ⬇ PLACE YOUR TEXT ADVERT BELOW ⬇⬇⬇
