Sowore Still National Chairman Of AAC – INEC

Omoyele Sowore is still the substantive National Chairman of the African Action Congress (AAC).

This position was made known by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

It would be recalled that the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the AAC had on  May 13, through a letter informed INEC that it had suspended Sowore and eight others over alleged anti-party activities.

But INEC through its Secretary, Rose Oriaran-Anthony, dated May 14, insisted that after reviewing the request, it had found that the requirements for the commission to recognise the meeting where the AAC NEC took the decision had not been met.

According to the electoral body, “The commission, after reviewing the content of the letter, has established the following: There is no documentary evidence that a meeting of the AAC NEC was convened by the National Chairman as required by Chapter 9 Section 59(a) of the constitution of the AAC.

“The party did not provide a 21-day notice of the NEC meeting as required by Section 85(1) of the Electoral Act 2010 (as amended). 

“There are no minutes or evidence of attendance of the AAC NEC meeting where the National Chairman and eight others were purportedly suspended.

“Accordingly, the Commission shall continue to recognise and relate with Mr Sowore Omoyele as the substantive National Chairman of the AAC.”
