The National Working Committee (NWC) of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Friday suspended governors Ibikunle Amosun and Rochas Okorocha of Ogun and Imo states respectively.
This as the NWC also recommended their expulsion from the party. The suspension, it was gathered, was not unconnected to the allegations of anti-party activities leveled against both governors.
Recall the duo had been at loggerheads with the APC National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole led NWC for supporting different candidates for the governorship election in their states against the party candidates.
Okorocha, who won a Senate seat as APC candidate, is backing his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu campaigning for Imo governor as candidate of Action Alliance.
Amosun, who also won a Senate seat as APC senator last week, is also supporting a member of the House of Representatives, Abdulkadir Akinlade, as governor as a member of the Allied Peoples Movement.
In Imo, APC has Senator Hope Uzodinma as its governorship candidate. Prince Dapo Abiodun is the candidate in Ogun.
