The Action Alliance, AA, has suspended its Imo State governorship candidate, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu, on allegations of insubordination, anti-party activities and mismanagement of party funds. The party also threatened to dissolve all of its structures in Imo – from Ward to State.
Addressing newsmen in Abuja on Monday, the National Chairman of the party, Chief Kenneth Uneze, fumed that the activities of the former Imo guber hopeful have serially undermined the principle of party supremacy and have divided its members in Imo State.
Chief Uneze further stated that the Action Alliance was a core signatory to the CUPP arrangement which has subsumed the interest of the party to the CUPP pact. He regretted that Nwosu who he alleged was in the know of all that even before joining the party could drag another component unit of the CUPP which is the PDP to court.
“This is a crisis we have tried to manage in-house for a while now. We have tried to make Uche Nwosu sees reasons to keep faith with the CUPP pact. But he has refused. As a party, we are bound by morality and good conscience to honour our words. This is why the NWC has decided to suspend him, and has recommended his expulsion to the NEC,” Uneze said.
The party Chairman also vowed to dissolve the party in Imo State if some of its functionaries continue to disobey the party.
His words, “It is absurd that Uche Nwosu has chosen to recruit a handful of our members in Imo State to disobey directives of the party. It should be stated in clear terms that any further acts that entail subversion of the will of the party shall have all the structures of the party – from Ward to State – in Imo dissolved.”
