Chief Victor Giadom, acting national secretary of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has stated that the party would adhere to the courier which suspended the party’s national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole today.
Recall News Nigeria reported that Oshiomhole was on Wednesday, March 4, suspended as the national chairman of the ruling APC by a Federal Capital Territory high court in Jabi.
Oshiomhole had been asked to step down pending the determination of the substantive suit seeking his removal as the APC chairman.
Justice Danlami Senchi who presided over the matter gave the order
Reacting, APC said it will respect court order suspending Oshiomhole as the ruling party’s national chairman
Recall that Oshiomhole had earlier been suspended by the Edo State chapter of the ruling party in the state.
Oluwale Afolabi in his application dated and filed on Thursday, January 16, named Oshiomhole as the first respondent, while the APC is the second respondent.
Afolabi went on to note that Oshiomhole who is currently suspended by the party has not challenged the suspension and cannot continue to function as the party’s chairman.
The governors were said to have sponsored a phoney survey that would establish false information accusing Oshiomhole as the primary cause of the ongoing crisis in Edo state.
A former speaker of the state House of Assembly, Thomas Okosun and former spokesman to Governor Godwin Obaseki, John Maiyaki, in a statement in Abuja said that the two southwest governors were working with Governor Obaseki on the plot targeted at gathering alleged false information that would be used to plot the removal of Oshiomhole as the party’s national chairman.
