The committee said that the suspension was ordered to disorganise Ndigbo ahead of the 2023 presidential election believed to be the turn of the zone to produce a president. The Presidential committee were led by the Director of Inter-Party Affairs, South East; Robert Ngwu, National Legal Adviser; Ejikeme Ugwu and Director, Political Matters; Comrade Maxwel Okoye. APC NWC had suspended Governor Okorocha over alleged anti-party engagements.
PSC had also threatened legal actions on the party if the suspension is not lifted within the stipulated period .
Presidential Committee disclosed that : “Okorocha’s suspension came to us as a rude shock. There is no way a cabal can suspend a major financier of the party. We give the NWC and the national chairman 48 hours to reverse the suspension without delay else, we will resort to legal and mass action against the leadership of APC.
“The suspension is aimed at disorganising Igbo ahead of 2023. Oshiomhole cannot wake up and suspend a major financier of the party. We plead with Buhari not to allow some few individuals to rubbish his friends because we know that Okorocha is a good friend of the president.”
However, orders for a lift of the Suspension immediately.
