Fact Check: Was Okorocha Sacked From APC?

A letter that circulated on social media and other news outlets, purportedly announcing the suspension of the former Imo State Governor, Owele Rochas Okorocha is fake.

This was disclosed by Sen. John Akpanudoedehe, National Secretary, APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC), in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.

According to him, the letter was the handiwork of individuals who were prepared to cause crisis within the party.

Rochas Okorocha

“It has come to the attention of the APC National Secretariat that a fake letter of a purported suspension of Sen. Rochas Okorocha from the party is circulating in the public space.

“Fifth columnists and forgers have obviously taken advantage of the unfortunate and recent leaks of our official correspondence with the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

“They now `copy and paste` forged signatures of the CECPC Chairman, Gov. Mai Mala Buni and Secretary on equally fake letters,” he said.

Akpanudoedehe said that the APC did not currently have a National Working Committee (NWC).

The APC scribe called on the discerning public to be wary of fifth columnists and imposters pursuing selfish agenda within the party through fake news.

He also urged the media to always rely on its well known and official communication and publicity channels to get accurate information on the activities of the party.
