AAC Abandons Sowore In DSS Detention; Sacks Him As The National Chairman
While Mr Omoyele Sowore is cooling chest in the detention of the Department of State Service (DSS), his party, The African Action Alliance (AAC) announced his expulsion from the party.
Sowore who was the party’s presidential candidate in the 2019 general election was expelled along with 28 other National Officers.
The African Action Alliance (AAC) on Friday, in Owerri, the Imo State capital, announced the expulsion of its National Chairman, Mr Omoyele Sowore, from the party.
Before his sack, he was the National Chairman of the party. His sack may not be unconnected with his current travail, his call for a revolutionary protest to address the insecurity and bad governance in the country.
The party took the decision at the National Convention of the party at Rockviw Hotel in Owerri.
Dr. Leonard Nzenwa was announced as the new National Chairman.
Chief Emeka Ezeife moved the motion and was seconded by Nasiru Abdul Rahman.
The AAC accused Sowore of bringing disrepute to the party through his call for revolution.
Dr. Nzenwa said the former Chairman was trying to change the party through unconstitutional means.
“The AAC is poised to take over power in 2023 through the ballot and not through any unconstitutional means. We acknowledge the constitutional rights of citizens to peaceful protest against government but we are aware that this constitutional right does not include the right to resort to unconstitutional take over of the government of the country or any part thereof.
“We as law party dissociate the party from any move to unconstitutionally topple the government and any individual who may have done that in the name of the party did so without our consent and clearly did not do so in the name of the party or on its behalf,” Nzenwa said.
The new Chairman lashed the former Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi for using the party to cause trouble in Rivers State, saying it’s not in alliance with any party.
He boasted that the party was capable of winning elections in Rivers without assistance from anyone.
