The All Progressives Congress (APC) state chapter in Abia has expelled Uzo Azubuike, a former member of the House of Representatives who previously represented the Aba North and South federal seat.
Former Finance Commissioner Mr. Obinna Oriaku was also suspended.
Azubuike, who was previously the state’s commissioner for agriculture under Governor Okezie Ikpeazu’s administration before switching to the APC, and his finance counterpart, who also defected from the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), were both suspended by the APC for engaging in anti-party activities.
In a statement announcing their expulsion, the party claimed it used the “big stick” against the two members due to their “unrepentant and un-remorseful attitude despite warnings for them to abide by the party’s constitution, acts of disobedience and negligence in carrying out lawful directives of the party,” among other things.
The party issued a warning to others involved in similar behaviour to stop or face the full wrath of its constitution.
The suspended participants respond In response to the suspension
Oriaku told newsmen in a conversation that the APC has a procedure for punishing members who take part in anti-party actions.
As well as not being invited or written about in any way, Oriaku was not accused of anything concrete in the letter or mail.
His only offence is that he is in court fighting for the legitimate party candidate for governor of Abia State.
