After pushing Governor Godwin Obaseki from participating in the primaries leading to the governorship election of September 19, 2020, the Appeal court sitting in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja on Tuesday upheld the suspension of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
His sack is coming days after he tactically organised the disqualification of Obaseki from the APC guber race in Edo state. The primaries has been fixed for June 22, 2020 in Benin City, the Edo state capital.
The Cable is reporting that the judgment was delivered by a three-man panel of the court of appeal which unanimously agreed on the suspension of the chairman from office.
The judgment was delivered by Mohammed Lamido, the judge dismissed Oshiomhole’s appeal as lacking in merit.
The ruling came when the chairman is facing serious issues with Obaseki and the Nigerian people who are aggrieved over his action against the governor of Edo state.
Following the disqualification of Obaseki, the governor had decided to defect to the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) to pursue his governorship ambition.
