ACN overrules suspension of national officer by Rivers Exco

Party says suspension violates its constitution.

The National Executive Committee, NEC of the Action Congress of Nigeria, ACN has overruled the suspension of a national officer by the Rivers State Executive Committee, saying the suspension violates the party’s constitution.

In a statement issued in Abuja on Thursday by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said going by the ACN Constitution, no state executive committee can suspend any national officer of the party.

”In view of this, the status quo remains and we enjoined all our members to allow peace to reign. If anyone has any grievances, the Constitution of the party is clear on what to do,” Mr. Mohammed said, threatening to sanction any member who fails to adhere to the party’s stand on the suspension.

Meanwhile, the ACN has warned its members in Rivers State to desist from rumour mongering that is capable of tarnishing the image of the party’s national leadership.

The party warned that disciplinary action will be taken against members found to be deliberately spreading such rumours.

    This is Bola Tinubu in action and in his real elements. Without carrying the Rivers ACN Executive along he simply sat down in a meeting with Amaechi somewhere in Ikeja Lagos and thereafter imposed Amaechi as the new leader of ACN/APC in Rivers State. And the result is the protest resignation of Dr Abiye Sekibo. I have always said that one of the real threats to the doomed APC merger is the fact that Bola Tinubu is a dictator operating a one-man party ACN while Muhammudu Buhari is also a murderous dictator operating a one-man party CPC. How can two “powerful” dictators work harmoniously together in the doomed APC merger; two captains in one boat? two kings in one palace? It just will never work; perish the thought.
