Appeal court ruling: Oshiomhole remains suspended as APC national chairman
A three-man panel of the court of appeal has affirmed the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
In a judgment delivered by Mohammed Lamido, a judge, on Tuesday, the three-man panel dismissed Oshiomhole’s appeal for lacking in merit.
The panel’s decision followed the decision of an Abuja high court in March 2020, which had ordered the suspension of Oshiomhole as national chairman of the APC.
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.
