The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has denied the widely reported suspension of former Imo Governor Senator Rochas Okorocha for alleged “anti-party activities”.
It said the purported letter of suspension addressed to Okorocha was forged.
The letter was purportedly signed by APC Caretaker Chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni and Secretary, Senator John Akpanudoehede.
Many media organisations had reported Okorocha was suspended by the APC for alleged anti-party activities on Tuesday.
But reacting to the development, APC Secretary, Senator Akpanudoehede, said the letter was fake.
“The letter is fake. It is not from us (APC). My signature was forged. The signature on that letter is copy and paste,” Akpanuduoehede stated.
The purported two-page letter with reference number APC/NHDQ/SP/19/022/41 dated 12th July, 2021 was titled: “Re: Notification of your suspension from the All Progressives Congress (APC) for gross anti-party.”
