Nigerians have taken to social media to react to the African Action Congress, AAC, announced the suspension of its national chairman and 2019 presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, and nine others over alleged corruption and abuse of office.
The party then appointed Leonard Nzenwa, as the new national chairman.l — whom Sowore later expelled in a statement.
According to the party, Sowore’s “deliberate inability to convene or hold the constitutionally mandated quarterly meetings of the National Executive Committee and other organs of the party.”
In their reactions, some Nigerian Twitter users said the news of the suspension was a diversionary tactic to the Audio leaked indicting Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN) governor, Godwin Emefiele, just a day ago.
A day after Sowore’s Sahara Reporters exposed monumental fraud at Nigeria’s apex bank, they got a clown to suspend him from his political party.
These looters got jokes.
