The removal of Adams Oshiomhole from office of National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been canceled, according to the report of TheNation.
The newspaper reports on Saturday, June 20, that Oshiomhole suspension was overturned by the leadership of the APC in the ward 10 Estako Western local government area of Edo state.
Before, It was reported that Oshiomhole commented on the verdict of the court of Appeal, which upheld his suspension from office.
Oshiomhole, who appeared as a guest on TV on Wednesday, June 17, said he accepted the verdict.
The suspended APC chair, however, said his lawyer will advise him on the next action to take. “My lawyers will advise having studied the judgement, what the next line of action will be. So at this point, 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.
In another report, Oshiomhole has broken silence on the defection of his successor Governor Godwin Obaseki from the APC.
He also vowed that the ruling party will go to court due to the discrepancies in Obaseki’s certificate should PDP field in the governor as its flagbearer in the forthcoming election.
“Fortunate enough, it was the PDP that exposed him in 2016. PDP filed a case at the Federal High Court amplifying every forgery segments in his certificate.
APC just managed to escape that because PDP filed out of time and the case was struck out.
“Now, the case has life, so, when they field him, we will be at the court to adopt what PDP filed before the court against him with additional evidence we now have against him. So, we can’t wait to have PDP field him as their candidate,” Oshiomhole said.
Meanwhile, the President of the eighth Senate, Abubakar Bukola Saraki, congratulated Governor Obaseki on his defection to the people’s Democratic party (PDP).
Referring to Obaseki’s choice as a step in the right direction, Saraki thanked the PDP governors and the party’s Edo branch at all levels for their unity and cooperation, especially in welcoming the Governor.
Moreover, in the statement of its press service, made at the disposal of Globalgistng.com Saraki noted that what is happening now with Adams Oshiomhole “is the moment of truth”.
