The National Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Oye has described his suspension by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party as null and void.
Oye made this revelation in an interview with the in Awka on Tuesday.
He said it had become a tradition in the party that each electioneering period, some people would want to steer trouble to cause confusion for personal interests.
Oye reassured APGA faithful that he remained the national chairman of the party and urged members to disregard the announcement, describing it as inconsequential.
The Eastern Updates gathered that his suspension came barely 24 hours after the party cleared the former Governor of the Central Bank, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo and three others while disqualifying five other aspirants from the party’s June 23 governorship primaries.
‘It’s what we see in every primary election, so am not perturbed. If this were in more civilised climes, these people will be arrested and jailed.
‘There is a procedure and you have to give INEC a notice to be able to convene a meeting of a National Working Committee (NWC). It is the chairman of the National Executive Committee that convenes NWC. So, my purported removal is laughable and rubbish.
‘These people do not exist and I am surprised that people are giving it publicity. What they did is media sack. Those people do not exist and they should be dealt with,’ he said.
The APGA NWC on Tuesday announced the suspension of Oye and appointed Mr Jude Okeke as acting National Chairman of the party.
