The Human rights activits was issued a suspension the National Executive Committee yesterday for corrupts practices.

The suspension was announced yesterday in Abuja the capital teritory by the NEC in Abuja who also replaced Omoyele Sowore with Leonard Nzenwa as the new National Chairman.

Read AAC official statement below:

“Since our party was registered, fellow party men and women, it has failed to hold the constitutional mandatory meetings. Huge monies, millions of naira and dollars have not properly been accounted for, particularly, hundreds of millions of dollars raised for our party’s presidential candidate.

“Allegations of foreign funds which were allowed to flow into the party in contravention of the provision of the 1999 constitution and the Electoral Act and were utilised by the party’s presidential candidate and certain individuals without knowledge of the party have been clearly established by all. We cannot be seen to be doing what the people we’re criticising are doing.”

Reacting to this, Sowore said it was actually the members led by Nzenwa that were suspended and not him.

His statement reads:

“These members, led by Leonard Nzenwa, former national secretary, who was suspended for financial impropriety and anti-party activities, have demonstrated by their actions that they have never been, and have never shared, the core beliefs that those of us in the African Action Congress hold.”
