A Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court in Jabi has ordered suspension of the National Chairman of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.
The Judge, Danlami Senchi, gave the order following an application of interlocutory injunction asking the court to suspend Oshiomhole, having been suspended as a member of the APC by the party in Edo State.
The suspension is to stand pending the determination of a substantive suit.
The application was filed by an applicant, Oluwale Afolabi.
Oshiomhole and APC are first and second respondents respectively.
According to Afolabi Oshiomhole is currently suspended by the party and has not challenged the suspension.
He argued that Oshiomhole’s rights as an APC member is currently abated and he cannot continue to act as chairman of the party.
In his ruling on Wednesday, Justice Senchi held that the first and second respondents wrongfully kept Oshiomhole as the national chairman of the party.
The court also ordered that Oshiomole should stop parading himself as the chairman of the APC pending the determination of the suit.
Hearing of the substantive suit has been fixed for April 7, 2020.
