According to the Committee, the suspension on Governor Rochas Okorocha came to it as a rude shock.
At a press briefing in Owerri on today, the presidential committee condemned the suspension of Okorocha, saying the act was done by a cabal. It also wondered why the party would suspend what it described as one the ‘major financier of the party.”
The presidential committee said the suspension was a ploy to disorganise Ndigbo ahead of the 2023 presidential election believed to be the turn of the zone to produce a president for the country.
The Presidential committee were led by the Director of Inter-Party Affairs, South East; Robert Ngwu, National Legal Adviser; Ejikeme Ugwu and Director, Political Matters; Comrade Maxwell Okoye.

However, the Presidential Committee threatened legal actions on the APC if the suspension is not lifted. According to the committee: “Okorocha’s suspension came to us as a rude shock. There is no way a cabal can suspend a major financier of the party. We give the NWC and the national chairman 48 hours to reverse the suspension without delay else, we will resort to legal and mass action against the leadership of APC.
“The suspension is aimed at disorganising Igbo ahead of 2023. Oshiomhole cannot wake up and suspend a major financier of the party. We plead with Buhari not to allow some few individuals to rubbish his friends because we know that Okorocha is a good friend of the president.”
