Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha has stated that he has sacked the chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, from the party for anti-party activities.
Okorocha made this known in reaction to reports that he has been sacked by the National Working Committee of the APC for anti-party activities.
Speaking on Sunday Politics, a programme on Channels Television, Okorocha said:
“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.”
He went on to accuse Oshiomhole of imposing Hope Uzodinma, APC guber 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 said.
