APC Leadership Crisis: Appeal Court Adjourns Hearing of Oshiomhole’s Case


BY VICTOR BUORO, ABUJA – The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, on Monday put off the earlier scheduled hearing in the appeal filed by the embattled National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

The three man panel of justices of the court led by Justice Stephen Adah which sat to hear other cases later rose announcing that another panel will be constituted to hear Oshiomole’s appeal.

But in a surprise move, a female staff of the court announced in the courtroom that was filled with both pro and anti-Oshiomhole’s supporters that the court has elected to hear Oshiomole’s appeal on a later date to be communicated to parties later.

The announcement caught and left parties in a frenzy surprise against the backdrop of the expectation of the constitution of a new panel,

The Court of Appeal last week sent notices of hearing to parties in the appeal filed by Oshiomhole. Following the development, Oshiomhole and his supporters, who were in court as early as 8:00 am, met with their team of lawyers on their next action and possible legal steps to pursue.

However, Oshiomhole in a brief chat with journalists outside the court room, said that he would await the Appeal Court’s decision in the matter.

The embattled National Chairman of the ruling APC is appealing an order of an FCT High Court restraining him from parading himself as National Chairman of the Party pending the outcome of the case instituted against him.
