Former presidential candidate Omoleye Sowore has been suspended as the chairman of the African Action Congress (AAC).
According to a statement by the party at the end of its ts National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting in Abuja on Monday, the suspension of Sowore and other members of his executive takes effect from March 27 and will last for six months except overturned by a National Convention of the party.
According to the NEC, Sowore is being suspended for alleged anti-party activities, financial misappropriation, and for his failure to convene NEC meeting.
The allegation against Sowore bordered “particularly on the 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.”
However, Leonard Nzenwa has been appointed as the new acting national chairman and has since been sworn-in.
