Breaking: AAC Expels Sowore, Announces Replacement


The African Action Alliance (AAC) on Friday announced the expulsion of its National Chairman, Mr. Omoyele Sowore from the party. The party took the decision at the National Convention of the party currently going on at Rockview Hotel, Owerri. Sowore was replaced by Dr. Leonard Nzenwa.


According to Dailytrust, 28 other national officers of the party were also expelled. In May, the party had suspended Sowore over alleged financial misappropriation. He was suspended, alongside eight others, during a special NEC meeting held in Abuja on Monday, May 13, 2019, with Leonard Nzenwa, the party's national secretary, immediately sworn in as acting chairman.


The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, however, refused to honour the suspension, stressing that the action failed to comply with the law.


The expulsion is coming barely a day after the Department of State Services secured a court order granting it permission to detain Sowore for 45 days. Sowore is the organizer of the Revolution Now protest.
