A federal high court sitting in Abuja, today ordered the suspension of the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, pending the determination of a substantive suit.

The judge Danlami Senchi, gave the order following an application of interlocutory injunction asking the court to suspend Adams Oshiomhole, having been suspended as a member of the APC by the party in Edo State.

The application which has Mr. Oshiomhole, APC as first and second respondents respectively was filed by an applicant, Oluwale Afolabi.

Mr Afolabi in his application dated and filed on January 16 had contended that Mr Oshiomhole is currently suspended by the party and has not challenged the suspension.

According to Afolabi,  Oshiomhole’s rights as an APC member is currently abated, therefore he cannot continue to act as chairman of the party. He argued that Adams Oshiomhole cannot continue to enjoy benefits from the APC, despite his suspension as a member of the party.

In his ruling on Wednesday, Justice Senchi held that the first and second respondents wrongfully kept Mr Oshiomhole as the national chairman of the party.

The court also ordered that Mr Oshiomole should stop parading himself as the chairman of the APC.

He urged the APC to desist from acknowledging him as the chairman of the party

The court has also given the APC orders not to grant Mr Oshiomhole access to the party secretariat.

Oshiomhole was controversially suspended by the APC in Edo State after he was suspended by the party’s leadership in his ward in the state.
