The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has reacted to the suspension of Omoyele Sowore as the chairman of African Action Congress (AAC)
The commission said AAC failed to show any “documentary evidence” that a meeting was called by the chairman as required by the party’s constitution.
It also found that the mandatory 21-day notice that should be circulated to members ahead of such critical meeting was not issued.
The commission also said records of the purported meeting, including minutes, where Mr Sowore was removed, were unavailable.
“The commission shall continue to recognise Sowore as national chairman,” the electoral body concluded.
