Adams Oshiomhole, the suspended national chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has commented on the verdict of the Court of Appeal which upheld his suspension.
Oshiomhole who appeared as a guest on Channels TV on Wednesday, June 17, said he has accepted the verdict.
Legit.ng gathers that the suspended APC chair, however, said his lawyer will advise him on the next action to take.
“We thank their lordships, they have given their judgement. In our democracy, the court is an independent arm of government.
“When they hand that judgment, it is not for you to pick whether you will obey or not. I accept their judgement in good fate.
“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.
Earlier, Legit.ng reported that the suspension of Oshiomhole as the national chairman of the APC was upheld by the Court of Appeal in Abuja.
Also, Oshiomhole has broken silence on the defection of his successor Governor Godwin Obaseki from the APC.
The APC chairman 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.
