This was disclosed in a statement signed by APDA national secretary, Emeka Okengwu, on Tuesday in Abuja.

Similarly, the Shittu-led NWC also announced at a seperate meeting that Dokpesi and his loyalists have been sacked from the party.

At the NEC meeting which was held at Riez Hotel in Abuja yesterday the stakeholders said that the tenures of the NWC members had expired since June 14 this year in line with the constitution of the party, adding that the meeting of yesterday complied with the party's Constitution as well as the provisions of the Electoral Act (as amended).

According to Premium Times, the party statement reads: "The newly registered political party, the Advanced Peoples Democratic Alliance National Working Committee has suspended Raymond Dokpesi, Dan Nwanyanwu, and Mainasara Ilo for unlawful gathering in the name of the party and violating the constitutional provision of the party for holding illegal National Executive Council meeting sacking the National Working Committee of the party".

Addressing journalists shortly after the meeting, the new National Chairman, Mr. Illo pointed out that the former NWC failed to organise a proper meeting to either extend their tenures or elected news officers in line with constitution of the party when their tenures expired.

The opposition party also accused Dokpesi of constituting an illegal Board of Trustees. Eguabor emerged as the National Publicity Secretary of the party.

Earlier in the morning, Dokpesi and some members of the party had gathered at what they called NEC meeting and pronounced the interim committee under Shittu leadership, sacked.

He went on to appeal to the public to disregard their announcement because they were agents of another party trying to destroy the emerging alternative party that would "give Nigerians a better life".

Meanwhile, Dokpesi was at the inauguration of the new committees constituted by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday evening in Abuja.
