Adams Oshiomhole, the suspended National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), commented on the verdict of the court of Appeal that upheld his suspension.
Oshiomhole, who appeared as a guest on TV on Wednesday, June 17, said he accepted the verdict.
However, he said that his lawyer will advise him on what further actions to take.
“We thank their Lordships for their decision. In our democracy, the court is an independent body of state power.
“When they make that decision, it is not for you to decide whether you will obey or not. I accept their judgment in a good way.
“My lawyers will advise, after studying the court’s decision, what the next course of action will be.
So for now, I will just thank their Lordships for their judgment and look forward to my lawyers on what should be the next line, if there should be another next line of action,” he said.
Globalgistng previously reported that Oshiomhole’s removal from the post of national Chairman of the APC was upheld by the court of Appeal in Abuja. In addition, Oshiomhole broke the silence about the desertion of his successor, Governor Godwin Obaseki from APC.
The APC Chairman also promised that the ruling party would go to court over inconsistencies in Obaseki’s certificate if the PDP nominated the Governor as its standard-bearer in the upcoming elections.
“Fortunately, it was the PDP that exposed him in 2016.
PDP filed a lawsuit in the Federal Supreme court, reinforcing each segment of forgery in its certificate.
The APC just managed to avoid this because the PDP filed an application out of time and the case was struck off.
Now the case has life, so when they put it out, we will be in court to accept what the PDP has sued against him, with the additional evidence we now have against him. So we can’t wait for the PDP will put him as their candidate,” said Oshiomhole.
