The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Wednesday, March 4, has suspended the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.
Justice Danlami Senchi, ordered Oshiomhole to step down pending the determination of the substantive suit seeking his perpetual removal as the APC chairman.
Meanwhile, there is a mild jubilation in the camp of Edo State governor, Godwin Obaseki after they heard an Abuja High Court suspended Oshiomhole as National Chairman of the party.
Recall that, the Newsflash247 had earlier reported that the political crisis rocking the APC in Edo State on took a new twist as Governor Godwin Obaseki called for the arrest of the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.
The request for Oshiomhole’s arrest was contained in a petition submitted to the Inspector-General of Police and Director-General of the Department of State Services by the Edo State deputy governor, Philip Shuaibu.
The petition claimed that the APC National Chairman had consistently breached the peace of Edo State by ignoring lawful orders of constituted authorities.
Governor Obaseki had in a viral video recently vowed to deal with Oshiomhole if he keeps disrupting activities of Edo APC.
The former labour leader was instrumental to the emergence of Obaseki but fell out with the governor shortly before he declared his re-election bid.
