Stay off Imo State, APC women warn Oshiomhole



Stay off Imo State, APC women warn Oshiomhole

A faction of Imo State All Progressives Congress (APC) women leadership, loyal to Governor Rochas Okorocha, has sent a warning to the national chairman of the governing party, Adams Oshiomhole, over the suspension of the governor.

Oshiomhole who announced the suspension of Okorocha last week was accused of taking the sole decision of suspending the governor who is the senator-elect for Imo West without recourse to procedures.

The women led by Theresa Ohanuha staged a protest on Sunday to drive home their request.

The women afterwards issued a communiqué at the end of the protest.

The communique read: “These actions of Oshiomhole negatively affected the outcome of the recent presidential election in Imo.

“The suspension of the Imo West senator-elect, Governor Rochas Okorocha, on the basis of anti-party activities is unacceptable.

“We are sure that Mr. President is not aware of these events.

“We, the APC women in Imo State, respectfully appeal to Mr. President to call Oshiomhole to order.

“Oshiomhole is unnecessarily attacking Okorocha because of the jealousy that he single-handedly ‘built the party’ in the South East.
