The governor of Ondo state, Rotimi Akeredolu, has dismissed the reports claiming that the verdict of the Court of Appeal which upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as APC national chairman was celebrated in the state.
The appeal court on Tuesday, June 16, upheld the suspension of Oshiomhole as the chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
There were allegations that the verdict was celebrated as a welcome development in Ondo state. Governor Akeredolu has, however, said the allegations are untrue.
He added that the goal of the sponsors of the report was to create disunity among APC members in the state.
The Ondo state governor said those behind the report wanted to pitch him against the leadership of the APC whom he said he has a good relationship with, The Nation reports.
Legit.ng gathers that Akeredolu made the denial through his commissioner for information and orientation, Donald Ojogo, who described the report as mischievous.
He added that the authors of the report did not have any pictures to show where the alleged celebrations took place in the state.
Governor Akeredolu said he has confidence in the APC National Working Committee and National Executive Committee at resolving outstanding issues in the party.
Meanwhile, Oshiomhole, the suspended national chairman of the 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.
He, 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.
