The African Action Congress (AAC) has suspended Omoyele Sowore, its presidential candidate in the 2019 General Election.
Punch reports that Mazi Okwy, a member of the AAC National Executive Committee read the party’s resolution to journalists in Abuja on Monday.
Sowore and eight others, including its Deputy National Chairman (South West), Ogunlana Rotimi Jacob, were suspended for six months over alleged anti-party activities.
The party then appointed Dr. Leonard Ezenwa, the acting National Chairman, while Abayomi Francis Olufemi has been named Deputy National Chairman.
The allegation against Sowore bordered “particularly on inflow of illegal foreign funds into the party and personally retaining same in contravention of Section 225 (3)(4) of the 1999 Constitution (as amended), together with eight others.”
When contacted, the Head of Media and Public Relations, Sowore Campaign Organisation, Rachel Onamusi-Kpiasi said: “Leonard (Ezenwa) has been suspended from the party for anti-party activities for months and is in no position to suspend the national chairman;” adding, “I will send a fully formed press release shortly.”
