Why AAC Suspended National Chairman Sowore, Others

The African Action Congress on Monday announced the suspension of its presidential candidate in the 2019 general election, Omoyele Sowore; and eight others, including its Deputy National Chairman (South West), Ogunlana Rotimi Jacob, for a period of six months over alleged anti-party activities.

Consequently, Dr. Leonard Ezenwa has been appointed acting National Chairman, while Abayomi Francis Olufemi has been named Deputy National Chairman.

A member of the AAC National Executive Committee, Mazi Okwy, who read the resolution of the party to journalists in Abuja, premised the party's decision against Sowore, Publisher of Saharareporters; and his executive, on alleged anti-party activities.

He said the allegation 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."

The committee also announced that the suspension of Sowore and other members of his executive takes effect from March 27 and it is to last for six months except overturned by a National Convention of the party.
