The Chief Jude Okeke-led National Working Committee of the party slammed Soludo with the suspension on Wednesday.
The former CBN governor is aspiring for the governorship seat in Anambra under the platform of APGA.
The National Publicity Secretary of the Okeke-led faction, Ikechukwu Chukwunyere, while briefing newsmen in Abuja on Wednesday, said the party decided to suspend Soludo for anti-party activities.
According to Chukwunyere, the decision to suspend Soludo, who is a governorship aspirant of the party, was taken late Tuesday night at the meeting of the Party.
Stating that Soludo was suspended because his activities were threatening the unity of the party.
He added that the NWC also applauded the members of the party in Anambra State who thronged to the Ward offices across the 326 Wards in the state to elect the three-man Ward delegates who would elect the Governorship candidate of the Party on 1st July, 2021 in line with the provisions of the Party Constitution, INEC Guidelines and the Electoral Act.
