- The embattled APC chairman's resumption trailed a March 16 appeal court judgement that reinstalled him to his position
- The former Edo governor has been in the eye of the storm after he was suspended by an FCT high court in Abuja on March 4
Embattled national chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole, against all odd dared aggrieved members as he resumed office on Tuesday, March 17.
It has been a tough time for Oshiomhole since he was suspended by a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) high court from parading himself as the national chairman of the party amid growing allegations of high-handedness.
Legit.ng recalls that Oshiomhole had been suspended as the chairman of the ruling party in a judgement delivered by Justice Danlami Senchi on Wednesday, March 4.
The former Edo governor was told to cease from further calling himself the national chairman of APC pending the determination of the suit filed before the court seeking his removal.
Oshiomhole, who already filed an appeal suit before the court, came out victorious on Monday, March 16, as a Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja stayed the execution of the March 4 order of the FCT court which had restrained him from further acting in that capacity.
The three-man panel of the court, led by Justice Abubakar Datti Yahaya was unanimous in granting the reliefs contained in an ex-parte motion argued on Monday by the lead lawyer to Oshiomhole and the APC, Wole Olanipekun (SAN).
According to Daily Trust, Oshiomhole arrived at the national secretariat of the party on Tuesday to resume work.
Mustapha Salihu, the national vice-chairman (northeast), was also present at the secretariat.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the crisis biting hard on APC hit the crescendo as a move by the appeal court to hear the verdict challenging Oshiomhole was put off on Monday, March 16.
It was reported that Oshiomhole and his loyalists were reported to be at the court premises as early as 8 am on Monday, to know his fate but the panel to preside on the judgement led by Justice Stephen Adah rose up minutes after beginning the hearing.
