The Presidential Support Committee has suspended three of its members over the ultimatum given to Adam Oshiomhole, the Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, to lift the suspension on the Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha.
Chemberline Adiaso, the South East Zonal Coordinator of PSC, announced this in a statement on Friday in Umuahia, Abia State.
The suspended members are Robert Ngwu, Director, Inter Party, South East; Ejikeme Ugwu, National Director, Legal Matters; and Maxwell Okoye, Director, Political Matters, South East.
Adiaos said the suspension letter was signed by Gideon Sammani, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Political Matters and Facilitator of PSC.
He said the members were suspended for breach of directives and regulations guiding the PSC.
The APC National Working Committee had suspended Okorocha over alleged anti-party activities.
Adiaso said they were suspended over a publication entitled: “Presidential Committee gives Oshiomhole 48 hours ultimatum to lift Okorocha’s suspension.”
According to him, their action is totally unacceptable and disrespectful to organs of the party, which is against the laid down rules and regulations guiding the affairs of PSC and constitution of our party.
“You are by this communication advised to retract this unauthorised publication within 72 hours, failing to do so will lead to expulsion,” the letter stated.
Adiaso said he had earlier dissociated himself from a recent news conference in Owerri, Imo State, where the suspended members allegedly issued the ultimatum.
He said anyone who questioned the authority of the NWC was also questioning the powers of President Muhammadu Buhari as the leader of the APC.
