The party warned other people engaging in such act to desist or face the full wrath of its constitution.

The suspended members react

Responding to the suspension, Oriaku in a chat with The Nation, said:

“APC has a process of disciplining members, who engage in anti-party activities.
“From the letter or mail, Oriaku was not accused of any tangible thing, just as he was not invited or written on any matter at all.
“His only crime is that he is in court over the authentic governorship candidate of the party in Abia State.”
