Former Governor of Edo State, Adams Aliyu Oshiomole, has been suspended by the Court of Appeal as the All Progressive Congress National Chairman.
Former Chairman of the All Progressive Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomole has finally reacted to his suspension after the Court of Appeal in Abuja gave the order on Tuesday.
Comrade Oshiomole has been facing some criticisms over the resignation of the current Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki from the APC party after his disqualification from contesting in the Guber Primaries.
Adams Oshiomole and Godwin Obaseki has been having some dispute of Obaseki desire to go for a second term as Governor of Edo State.
However, according to statements from Adams Oshiomole’s spokesperson, Victor Oshioke, Oshiomole has called on his lawyers to appeal the decision made by the Court of Appeal.
Victor Oshioke said, “Today the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja passed judgement on the purported suspension of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as a member of APC by three former Exco members of APC Ward 10, Etsako West Local Government Area, Edo State. In the said judgement, the Appeal Court upheld the decision of the lower court.”
“Lawyers for Comrade Adams Oshiomhole have immediately set in motion processes to appeal the judgement in the coming days. It is pertinent to state categorically that today’s judgement does not invalidate decisions and actions taken within the top echelon of APC at any time before now.”
He also said that as expected, many fake news will be going all over the social media, spreading news that are not true as unique information. He also called on the general public to not take heed of such fantasies, sensational stories that are not true. He also urged them to stay calm, and be rest assured that everything is under control and there are no causes for alarm.
“We are conscious of the anxiety out there, and we will do everything possible to ensure that the truth prevails in this case.”
Adams Oshiomole has been replaced with Former Oyo governor, Abiola Ajimobi. He would hold the position in an acting capacity.
However, Ajimobi’s appointment has been challenged by a court order from the Deputy National Secretary and a member of the party’s National Working Committee, NWC, Victor Giadom.
The Federal High Court has declared Victor Giadom as the national chairman of the party should Oshiomole be suspended.
