OrderPaperToday – The crises in the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Imo state has taken another turn following the suspension of Governor Rochas Okorocha as the campaign leader of the Party in the state.

The suspension of Okorocha was confirmed by Lanre Issa-Onilu, the APC National Publicity Secretary, who accused the Imo Governor of anti-party activities.

“The APC had directed governors to take over the campaign of the party in the state. Where it has no governor, it directed governorship candidate to take over. Since Okorocha has displayed anti-party traits, you can’t expect him to be part of our strategic meetings again,” he said.

It is now expected that Senator Hope Uzodinma who is the APC gubernatorial candidate in Imo will now head the campaign in the state.

Recall that Okorocha has repeatedly vowed to work towards the election of his son in-law, Uche Nwosu, who is the governorship candidate of the Action Alliance (AA), ahead of Hope Uzodinma of the APC.
