Why Appeal Court upheld embattled Oshiomhole’s suspension as APC Chair

Embattled Oshiomhole.

In the midst of his do-or-die political fight with his state governor, Mr Godwin Obaseki, the Court of Appeal in Abuja has upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In a judgment delivered on Tuesday evening, the three-man panel of the court dismissed Oshiomhole’s appeal against an earlier judgment of a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and held that his appeal was without merit.

It will be recalled that the FCT High Court had, in its judgment in March, held among others that Oshiomhole could no longer function as the APC National Chairman having been suspended by his local branch, a suspension he failed to challenge before the party’s National Working Committee (NEC) suspended him.
