Appeal Court returns Oshiomhole as APC National Chairman


A court of appeal sitting in Abuja has restrained APC from executing the judgement of a federal capital territory high court which ordered the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman of the ruling party.
.
.
On March 4, Danlami Senchi, a judge of the federal capital territory (FCT) high court in Abuja, had ordered the suspension of Oshiomhole pending the determination of a suit filed by one Oluwale Afolabi.
.
.
Afolabi had challenged the continuous stay of Oshiomhole in office despite his suspension by the Edo chapter of the APC.
.
.
But on Monday, Abubakar Yahaya, chairman of the three man panel of judges, ordered a stay of execution pending the hearing of an application filed by Oshiomhole.
.
.
Oshiomhole in his appeal, asked the court to set aside the suspension order.
At the resumed session, Wole Olanipekun, counsel to Oshiomhole, prayed the court to grant a motion ex parte staying the order of the lower court.
.
.
He said “time is of the essence” and the matter should not be left until tomorrow because “between now and tomorrow is like eternity.”
