The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has rescheduled to an undisclosed date the today’s hearing on Adam Oshiomhole’s suit challenging his suspension as the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Chairman.
Recall that an Abuja High Court presided over by Justice Danlami Senchi had granted an order of interlocutory injunction stopping Mr Oshiomhole from parading himself as the National Chairman of the APC.
Last week, Mr Oshiomhole appealed the judgement and the court sent notices of hearing to parties in the appeal.
However, according to a report by The Nation, when parties got to court today, a panel of three Justices led by Justice Stephen Adah sat to hear other cases.
The panel later rose, with a promise that another panel will be reconstituted to hear Mr Oshiomole’s appeal.
Parties were, however, taken aback when, rather than having a new panel, a female official of the court announced to a packed courtroom that the court has elected to hear Oshiomole’s appeal on a later date to be communicated to parties later.
Mr Oshiomhole and his supporters, who have been in court since a little over 8 am, are currently meeting with their team of lawyers on what next steps to take.
As he exited the courtroom, with his supporters behind, Oshiomhole told journalists that he would await the court’s decision in the case.
