The Governor of Imo State, Rochas Okorocha, has said that he has sacked the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, from the ruling party.
Okorocha, during an interview on Sunday Politics, a programme on Channels Television, accused the APC Chairman of engaging in anti-party activities, by “destroying” the party.
He said: “I just heard Media reports that I have been suspended from the party. I think Adams is seeking relevance and looking for attention. He does not have such powers to remove somebody, without following the due process. If he is joking, which I think he is, I also have decided to sack him myself.
“So, I have sacked him from the party. If he thinks he can just stand up and say he has suspended me from the party I founded, without following the due process, in the same manner, I have sacked him from the party.
“I learnt that the reasons he adduced for my being suspended from the party, is for anti-party reasons. I think Adams is the biggest player of anti-party activities in the APC. The man has simply destroyed the party to a great extent.”
According to Okorocha, the APC had a “serious setback” in the just concluded Presidential election, offset only by the personality of President Muhammadu Buhari, and the love of Nigerians for him.
