Oshiomhole: APC pledges to respect court’s injunction to suspend national chairman

The All Progressives Congress (APC) says it will respect the decision of the Abuja High Court suspending Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the party.

This decision was disclosed by the acting National Secretary of the party, Victor Giadom.

Giadom stated this while addressing a news conference at the APC headquarters in Abuja, on Wednesday, March 4.

According to him, the APC is a law-abiding political party and remains committed to obeying court orders.

He disclosed that the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party would meet soon to deliberate on the challenges facing the APC.

Meanwhile, a team of policemen has taken over the national secretariat of the ruling party in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The security operatives said they were at the secretariat to prevent any breakdown of law and order following the suspension of Oshiomhole by the court.

The FCT High Court on Wednesday issued an order; restraining Adams Oshiomhole from parading himself as the National Chairman of the ruling, All Progressives Congress, APC.

In his ruling, Justice Senchi Danlami gave an order of interlocutory injunction restraining Oshiomhole from parading himself as the National Chairman of the APC; pending the hearing and determination of the substance suite.

Indeed, the former governor has been in the eye of the storm lately; as he was recently suspended by his party at his Ward, Local Government and State levels.

It was on this premise the injunction application was grounded.

Allegations that triggered his suspension include; alleged highhandedness, misappropriation of funds and disregard for the rule of law.

After surviving major judicial upsets in Zamfara and Rivers State during the buildup to the last elections; which totally knocked them of the ballot; the APC has been battling with internal Unity, especially in its National Working Committee (NWC).

It was alleged that Adams, single-handedly appointed a National Secretary for the party without any constitutional backing.
