APGA suspends South-East chairman

The All Progressives Grand Alliance has suspended its National Vice Chairman (South-East), Mr Ozo Okafor, over alleged anti-party activities.

In a communiqué released in Awka on Thursday, after an emergency meeting of its South-East Working Committee, the party said  Okafor’s activities were considered and found to be against its interest.

It said that the anti-party activities contravened Articles 21(1) (g) (k) (i) (n) and 22(1) (C) (d) (e) (h) and (h) of APGA’s Constitution as amended.

“Sequel to the self-induced crisis currently instigated by some members of NWC of APGA and spearheaded by National Vice Chairman South-East, Ozo Okafor, we resolve as follows:

“That Ozo Okafor is suspended as a result of glaring anti-party activities, which he has been engaged in and in total breach of Articles 21(1)(g)(k)(i) (n) and 22(1)(C)(d)(e)(h) and (h) of APGA Constitution as amended.

“That we the South-East Working Committee appoint Chief Smart Iheoma as the Acting National Vice Chairman, in addition to his position as Assistant National Publicity Secretary, pending outcome of report of our disciplinary committee,” the communiqué stated.

The party expressed confidence in Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra State as the leader of the party and Dr Victor Oye as its National Chairman for their commitment to the advancement of the party.

The communiqué was signed by eight members out of the nine members of the NWC in the zone.
