According to John Akpanudoedehe, the secretary of the APC caretaker committee, the suspension of the embattled Senator did not come from the ruling party.
“It has come to the attention of the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) that a fake letter of a purported suspension of Senator Rochas Okorocha from the party is circulating in the public space,” he said.
“Fifth columnists and forgers have obviously taken advantage of the unfortunate and recent leaks of our official correspondences with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to copy and paste forged signatures of the CECPC Chaiman and Secretary on equally fake letters.
“The APC does not currently have a “National Working Committee” as stated in the fake letter, but a Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) which has been saddled with the mandate to reposition, unite and strengthen our great party.”
He added that the letter “is a figment of the imagination of fifth columnists”, and urged members to ignore it.
Okorocha has been at loggerheads with Hope Uzodimma, current governor of Imo, leading to altercations between government officials and supporters of the lawmaker.
