BREAKING: Oshiomole reacts to Suspension as APC Chairman, reveals next move


Embattled former chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Adams Aliyu Oshiomole has reacted to his suspension following an order from the Court of Appeal in Abuja on Tuesday.

Oshiomole, who has been facing severe criticisms over the resignation of his successor and current Edo state governor, Godwin Obaseki from the party following his disqualification from contesting the Guber Primaries. Oshiomole and Obaseki have been at loggerheads over the latter’s second term ambition.

However, in a statement on Tuesday night, signed by his spokesperson, Victor Oshioke, Oshiomole disclosed that he has engaged lawyers to appeal the judgement. The statement, obtained by POLITICS NIGERIA, read;

“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.”

“Expectedly, many fake news will by flying all over social media, merchandising concocted scenarios as privileged information. We call on the general public to ignore such sensational stories, remain calm and be rest assured that everything is under control. There is absolutely no cause 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.”

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.

POLITICS NIGERIA gathered that an FCT high court order issued on March 16th declared Giadom as the national chairman of the party should Oshiomole be suspended.
