APC to Validate Oshiomhole's Suspension
The National Working Committee (NWC) of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has indicated that it would validate the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the party.
A Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court sitting in Abuja, had on Wednesday ordered Oshiomhole to step down pending the determination of the substantive suit seeking his perpetual removal.
The suspension order is sequel to a suit filed by the National Vice Chairman, North East of the party, Comrade Mustapha Salihu, a factional chairman of the APC in Edo state, Anselm Ojezua and others, seeking to remove Oshiomhole from office.
APC Acting National Secretary, Victor Giadom in his reaction to the suspension, said the party will as a law-abiding unit, respect the orders of the court.
While denying claims of an ongoing NWC meeting in the Aso Drive residence of the former Edo governor, Giadom declined comments on possible replacement for Oshiomhole.
Meanwhile, Police in about 10 patrol vans and an Armoured Personnel Carrier have been stationed around APC National Secretariat for the fear of outbreak of violence.
