Oshiomhole: We Will Obey Court Injunction-APC

The All Progressives Congress (APC), has revealed that it will respect the decision of the Abuja High Court which suspended its national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.

The party’s decision was made known by the acting National Secretary of the party, Victor Giadom.

Speaking during a news conference at the APC headquarters in Abuja on Wednesday, March 4, Giadom stated that 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.

Recall that the court on Wednesday issued an order; restraining Adams Oshiomhole from parading himself as the National Chairman of the ruling APC.

In his ruling, JusticeSenchi 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.
