The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suspended Ibikunle Amosun, Governor of Ogun State, and Rochas Okorocha, Governor of Imo State, from the party.
They were also recommended for expulsion from the party.
The decision to expel the duo has been recommended to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the APC.
The governors, who were both recently elected as senators on the APC platform, were accused of anti-party activities.
Both governors have been openly supportive of prospective successors who are not members of the party. For Amosun, he has publicly shown support for Adekunle Akinlade, Ogun governorship candidate of the Allied Peoples Movement (APM), while Okorocha has thrown his weight behind Uche Nwosu, his in-law and Imo governorship candidate contesting on the platform of the Action Alliance (AA).
Also suspended are the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Usani Uguru and the Director General of Voice of Nigeria, Osita Okechukwu.
