The letter from the disciplinary committee, was made available to newsmen in Owerri, and was signed by the committee chairman, Matthew Omeghara and Secretary, Mr Kevin Ugwu. It read in part: “The committee has patiently and painstakingly listened to the overwhelming evidence of Prince Ikechukwu Unegbu, and examined all electronic and media materials tendered and admitted in evidence against His Excellency Rochas Okorocha, in which the governor was accused of anti-party activities and found as follows. “That there are overwhelming and incontrovertible evidence of anti-party activities against Governor Rochas Okorocha. “That Okorocha is openly and brazenly sponsoring, financing, campaigning for his son-in-law, Uche Nwosu, who is the gubernatorial candidate of Action Alliance, (AA)” Citing sections of the APC constitution, the letter read: “The action of His Excellency, Anayo Rochas Okorocha, contravenes article 21 (A) i-vi APC constitution (October 2014 as amended) punishable under article 21 D (i) (g). “This is therefore the recommendation of the APC, disciplinary committee that His Excellency, Governor Rochas Okorocha, be expelled from our great party.” Meanwhile, the chairman of the party, Daniel Nwafor, said the Caretaker Committee set up by Adams Oshiomhole is an illegality, as such every activity of the committee is illegal. Nwafor said: “You do not build something on nothing. There is no way an illegal contraption can create anything legal. So I urge you to discountenance the Caretaker Committee, the Disciplinary Committee and their so called recommendations. It is an exercise in futility. “Meanwhile the Caretaker Chairman, Marcons Nlemigbo and the National Chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole already have their dates with the court and they will have to tell the court where they derived their authority to violate a subsisting judgment of court affirming our executive as the authentic leadership of the APC in Imo State.”]]>
