Oshiomhole: Court mandates suspension of APC National Chairman

The FCT High Court on Wednesday, March 4; issued an order restraining Comrade 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.

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.

This did not go down well with many members of the NWC and has caused in-fighting.

It was also alleged that over N15 billion was mismanaged by Oshiomhole during the run-up to the 2019 elections; which led to party members demanding accountability.

These allegations have fueled pro and anti-Oshiomhole rallies around the country.

The last rally in Abuja was reported to have turned out violent as critics and supporters collided in front of the party’s National Secretariat in Abuja.
