“That there are overwhelming evidence that are unchallengeable of anti party activities by His Excellency, Rochas Okorocha. 

“That His Excellency was openly and brazenly, sponsoring, financing,   campaigning for his son-in-law Uche Nwosu, who is the gubernatorial candidate of Action Alliance, AA” 

They cited some of the sections of their party’s constitution that said that the actions of Okorocha contravened article 21 (A) i-vi of APC constitution (October 2014 as amended) punishable under article 21 D (i) (g). 

“This is therefore the recommendation of the APC, Disciplinary Committee; that His Excellency, Anayo Rochas Okorocha, be expelled.”

The complainant is present while the respondent, His Excellency, Anayo Rochas Okorocha is absent. There is no letter on or on behalf of his Excellency explaining his absence,”
