Again, Oshiomhole booted out of office

By Lubem Gena

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), News Headquarter is reporting.

It could be recalled that an FCT High Court had on March 4 granted an application by six members of the APC in Edo State suspending Oshiomhole from office.

Media reports monitored in Abuja on Tuesday evening indicates that, a three-member panel of justices led by the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem held that Oshiomhole’s appeal challenging his suspension was unmeritorious.


Our correspondent recalls that the judgement is coming on the same day Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State resigned his membership of the APC, after meeting with Prof. Ibrahim Gambari, the Chief of Staff (CoS) to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Villa.


Obaseki had met with Gambari over his disqualification from participating in the primary of the APC when the governors of the party who tried to save him hit the brick wall.

Governor Obaseki’s deputy, Hon. Philip Shaibu and many state lawmakers as well as local government chairmen from the South Western state also pledged loyalty to the governor by following suit.

The state is due to hold its gubernatorial election this year.
