Top chieftains of the All Progressive Congress, APC in Imo State Senator Ifeanyi Araraume, Senator Hope Uzodinma and Senator Osita Izunaso have taken on Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha calling for his expulsion from the party.
The demand is coming amidst deepening crisis in the Imo State chapter of the All Progressive Congress, APC over congresses.
In a petition to the National Chairman of the party, John Odigie Oyegun, the trio and other stakeholders in the party called for the re-positioning of the APC to secure the South East States in 2019, praying that for the party to secure victory it has to do away with Okorocha.
They also called on President Muhammadu Buhari to declare a state of emergency in the State as a measure of stopping further violence in the State.
“This attempt to drag the state into further violence in the face of a non-existent state assembly only points to the complete breakdown of an already non-existent governance for which the state of emergency envisaged in the Section 305 of our Constitution is to be declared” they stated
Those who signed the letter on behalf of Imo APC stakeholders include Senators Ben Uwajimogu, Hope Uzodinma, Ifeanyi Araraume, Osita Izunaso, Hon. Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, Hon. Mike Ohia and Hon. Austin Chukwukere.
