There is controversy at the National Secretariat of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the Deputy National Chairman (South), Senator Abiola Ajimobi and the Deputy National Secretary, Chief Victor Giadom are both dragging the chairmanship seat of the party.
While the Deputy National Chairman, Senator Abiola Ajimobi, via a release signed by his Special Adviser, Communication and Strategy, Bolaji Tunji, called on stakeholders to continue to observe the peace as he assumes position as acting National Chairman of the APC, Honourable Victor Giadom has also announced he has taken over.
Meanwhile, the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) has announced that Senator Abiola Ajimobi still remains as the Acting National Chairman of the party.
However, a letter signed by Chief Oluwole Afolabi, ESQ, lawyer to Honourable Giadom, said “our attention has been drawn to a Statement purportedly issued by the Publicity Secretary of the APC to the effect that Senator Abiola Ajumobi is to act as the National Chairman of APC following the suspension from office of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by the Court of Appeal.
“We wish to state that the statement must have been issued in complete ignorance of the order of the FCT High Court issued on 16th of March, 2020, by Hon. Justice S.U Bature in Suit No. FCT/HC/M/6447/2020 to the effect that Chief Victor Giadom is to act as the National Chairman of the party due to the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman.
“The order was given the same day that the Court of Appeal earlier gave Oshiomhole a temporary respite by staying the execution of the said order suspending Oshiomhole. Now that the Court of Appeal has affirmed the order of suspension, it is only proper that the Order recognizing Chief Victor Giadom is implemented.
“Consequently, we have written to all law-enforcement agencies to implement the said order and any one who attempts to parade himself/herself other than Chief Victor Giadom as the Acting Chairman of the APC would be facing contempt of court proceedings.”
