African Action Congress (AAC) has suspended its former presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, and eight others for a period of six months.
A member of AAC National Executive Committee, Mazi Okwy, announced the party’s resolution to journalists in Abuja on Monday.
Also suspended is its deputy national chairman (South West), Ogunlana Jacob.
Okwy said their suspension was based on alleged anti-party activities “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.”
He also said that Leonard Ezenwa has been appointed acting national chairman, while Abayomi Francis Olufemi has been named deputy national chairman.
