The row between Rochas Okorocha of Imo state and Adams Oshiomhole took a new turn on Sunday, as the governor said he has sacked the chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), for anti-party activities.
Okorocha said this on a Channels TV programme – Sunday Politics, while reacting to his suspension by the APC National Working Committee. He noted that the Oshiomhole lacked the power to suspend him.
Continuing, he said, as one of the founders of the APC, he could say that Oshiohmole was involved in anti-party activities.
“I just heard from media reports that I have been suspended from the party (APC). I think Adams is seeking for relevance and attention,” he said.
“He doesn’t have such powers to remove somebody without following due process. I think Adams is the biggest player of anti-party in APC. The man has simply destroyed the party to a great extent.
“So, I have sacked him from the party. If he thinks he can just stand up and say he has suspended me from the party I founded, without following the due process, in the same manner, I have sacked him from the party.”
Okorocha also accused Oshiomhole of imposing Hope Uzodinma, APC governorship candidate in Imo on the party.
“The candidate that Oshiohmole imposed on the party in Imo State lost his votes for the Presidential election and all the members of the coalition in Imo State worked for PDP,” he added..
