Adams Oshiomhole, has appealed the High Court’s judgement suspending him as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Recall that on Wednesday, a Federal Capital Territory High Court, Abuja had suspended Mr Oshiomhole as the chairman of the party.
Justice Danladi Senchi ordered that Mr Oshiomhole should remain suspended pending the determination of the substantive suit seeking his perpetual removal as chairman of the party.
Speaking reporters at the party’s National Secretariat, the acting National Secretary of the party, Victor Giadom, said the APC as a law-abiding political party will respect the decision of the court suspending Mr Oshiomhole.
In the appeal documents, Mr Oshiomhole faulted the “whole ruling” of the trial court which granted the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction.
The defendants in the case include Mustapha Salihu, the deputy chairman of the party (North-East).
Another defendant is the Edo State chapter chairman of the party, Anselm Ojezua, a loyalist of Mr Obaseki.
Others are Sani Gomna, Oshawo Steven, Fani Wabulari, Princewill Ejogbarado, the Inspector General of Police, and the State Security Service.
