The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the African Action Congress (AAC) has suspended Omoyele Sowore as the National Chairman of the party. The decision was made known this morning Monday May 13th at the party’s NEC meeting in Abuja.
The party says Sowore was suspended for alleged anti-party activities, failure to convene NEC meeting and financial misappropriation.
A new acting national chairman, Leonard Nzenwa, has immediately been sworn-in.
The committee also announced that the suspension of Sowore and other members of his executive took effect from March 27th and it is to last for six months except overturned by a National Convention of the party.
