The Action Alliance (AA) has suspended its candidate in the March governorship election in Imo state, Uche Nwosu
Nwosu, who is the son-in-law to the former Governor of Imo State RochasOkorocha, was accused of insubordination, anti-party activities and mismanagement of funds.
The party’s National Chairman, Kenneth Uneze, made this known while addressing journalists in Abuja.
Uneze alleged that Nwosu had serially undermined the principle of party supremacy and also divided its members in Imo.
“This is a crisis we have tried to manage in-house for a while now. We have tried to make Uche Nwosu sees reasons to keep faith with the CUPP pact. But he has refused. As a party, we are bound by morality and good conscience to honour our words. This is why the NWC has decided to suspend him, and has recommended his expulsion to the NEC,” he said.
“It is absurd that Uche Nwosu has chosen to recruit a handful of our members in Imo state to disobey directives of the party,” he said.
The party chairman also threatened to dissolve AA in Imo if its members continue to disobey the party.
