APC can’t suspend me

Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, has made it clear that he cannot be suspended from the governing All Progressive Congress, APC.
Okorocha is the Chairman of Progressive Governors Forum, an assemblage of APC Governors in Nigeria.
He said never at any time was he suspended or expelled from the party as the APC never contemplated doing that and would not have any reason to think about that.
Reacting to media reports of his imminent suspension from the party, Okorocha through a Statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Sam Onwuemedo, said there is no faction in Imo APC as only one APC exists and led by Hon. Daniel Nwafor as Chairman and himself as leader of the party.
Part of the statement reads “There is also no faction in Imo APC. There is only one APC in the State with Hon. Daniel Nwafor as the Chairman and Owelle Rochas Okorocha as the leader. Any other group Claiming to be a faction of Imo APC must obviously be a gang of 419ers or league of fraudsters who are experts in issuance of dud cheques and collecting billions for jobs not done.
“The only contentious issue in Imo APC is that the National Chairman of the Party, Mr. Adams Oshiomhole imposed a known PDP member in the State on the Party as its governorship Candidate, and by so doing, pushing the party and its members to a very tight corner especially when it comes to the issue of marketing a Candidate.
“If Mr. Oshiomhole didn’t want the preferred Candidate of members of the Party in the State, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, for any reason, and if he actually meant well for Imo APC, he would have taken one of the Guber Aspirants that formed the Coalition who are known members of the Party, and who is also from Owerri zone since that was the reason some of them in the coalition claimed that made them to leave the government.
