APC Saga: Oshiomhole Elated As Court Sets Aside Suspension Ruling

Adams Oshiomhole has been reinstated by a Federal High Court In Kano as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The court In Kano set aside Wednesday’s ruling of the FCT High Court which suspended Oshiomhole as the leader of the ruling party.

In his judgement on Thursday, Justice Lewis Allagoa on Thursday ordered the Nigeria Police Force to vacate the national headquarters of the APC in Abuja.

The judge also ordered the police and Department of State Service (DSS) to provide security for the former Edo State Governor to resume in his office.

As at the time of filing this report, it is unknown whether the court has the jurisdiction to set aside the previous ruling and who filed the case before the court in Kano.

Recall that Justice Danlemi Senchi of the Federal Capital Territory High Court had ordered Oshiomhole to stop parading himself as the party’s national chairman.

According to the judge, Oshiomhole has been suspended by his ward and should restrain from functioning as the National Chairman of the party pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit, which is seeking his perpetual removal as the APC chairman.

However, hours after the court granted an order of interim injunction restraining him from being the APC chairman, Oshiomhole appealed the judgment at the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division.

In the notice of appeal filed on four grounds, Oshiomhole faulted the court ruling and sought an order of the appellate court to set aside the ruling of the trial court.
