The Justices Danlani Senchi-led court on Wednesday suspended the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Oshiomhole.
The Court had ruled that the former governor of Edo State should step down pending the determination of a suit seeking his removal as APC National Chairman.
However, one of the applicants identified as Oluwale Afolabi, revealed why some aggrieved members of the party want Oshiomhole out of office.
Afolabi while speaking with newsmen in Abuja, said the APC National Chairman was taken to the court because he can’t remain in office after he was suspended from his ward.
According to Afolabi: “Well, we came with the order because we believe in the rule of law, that is simply the reason why we are here to make sure that the constitution is respected.”
“Our contention is very simple; that Oshiomhole was suspended by his ward and if you are a suspended member, you can’t rip the benefit of full membership.”
“So all we are saying is that his rights as a member of APC are in abatement to the very minimum. So we just wanted the court to give voice to what people at his local ward have said.”
