The Rivers State Executive Committee of the All Progressives Congress on Wednesday suspended the party’s Chairman, Chief Emeka Beke, and the Legal Adviser, Iheanyichukwu Azubuike.
Special leader of the party’s executive committee in the state, Chike Eyinda, who led other members to a media briefing in Port Harcourt, disclosed that the duo were suspended over alleged anti-party activities and financial misconduct.
According to The PUNCH, Eyinda said the activities of Beke and Amaechi had adversely affected the party in the last couple of years, culminating in its dismal outing in the just concluded general election.
He said, “We, the members of the State Executive Committee, therefore resolve as follows: That Chef Emeka Beke, the chairman of the APC in Rivers State, is hereby suspended indefinitely for anti-party activities, gross misconduct, and financial mismanagement pending the outcome of an independent committee of inquiry as may be set up by the party.
“That until the outcome of the committee of inquiry, Mr. Omiete Eferebo, the deputy chairman assumes the office of the acting chairman with immediate effect.
