The NWC has also recommended their expulsion from APC to the national executive committee (NEC) for ratification.
The decisions were taken at the NWC meeting on Friday afternoon in Abuja where allegations of “anti-party activities” were levelled against the governors.

While Amosun is seeking to install his candidate, Abdukadir Adekunle Akinlade on the platform of the Allied Peoples Movement, APM, Okorocha is supporting his in-law, Uche Nwosu who is the flagbearer of the Action Alliance, AA.
