The national chairman and presidential candidate of the African Action Congress, AAC, Mr Omoyele Sowore has his dismissed his purported suspension by members of the National Executive Committee of the party, describing the action as misguided.In a counter move, Sowore swiftly announced the expulsion of the party’s National Secretary, Mr Leonard Nzenwa, who was named as the acting National Chairman of the AAC by the NEC of the party on Monday.
He further announced the suspension of all those who participated in the Abuja meeting where he (Sowore) was purportedly suspended from the party “until investigations reveal the extent of their involvement”. He accused those in attendance at the NEC meeting of the AAC, where he was suspended, as being induced by financial reasons and anti-progressive politics.Sowore, in a statement personally signed by him, said, “It has come to the notice of the office of the Chairman of the African Action Congress that a group of suspended members, induced by financial reasons and anti-progressive politics, gathered in Abuja today, 13th May, 2019, and purportedly held a NEC meeting.
“These members, led by Leonard Nzenwa, former national secretary, who was suspended for financial impropriety and anti-party activities, have demonstrated by their actions that they have never been, and have never shared, the core beliefs that those of us in the African Action Congress hold.
“Leonard Nzenwa is hereby expelled from the party, and the misguided individuals who participated in the Abuja meeting are suspended from the party until investigations reveal the extent of their involvement”, he said.
