A member of the National Working Committees (NWC) member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) says Comrade Adams Oshiomhole can no longer act as national chairman of the party when he stands suspended from party in his home state.
The Northeast National Vice Chairman of the party, Comrade Saliu Mustapha said there is subsisting’ court order to that effect.
He told journalists at the ongoing National Working Committee (NWC) holding at the national secretariat of the party in Abuja that Oshiomhole can no longer preside over party’s activities including a meeting of the NWC.
According to a report by The Blueprint Newspaper, Mustapha revealed that he was working on a petition to the Director General of the Directorate of State Security Services (DSS), Inspector General of Police and the Presidency among others.
The APC Northeast National Vice Chairman from Adamawa state, who came out of the ongoing NWC meeting at the party house, told newsmen (angrily) that from the Oshiomhole’s ward to the state he (Oshiomhole) has been suspended.
Mustapha said until another court judgement overturn the subsisting court order, Oshiomhole remained suspended.
“Unless I see the reversal of the court order suspending Oshiomhole as the APC national chairman, I won’t allow him to sit here as the party’s national Chairman.”
When our correspondent who has been at the party house since 10am visited the Adams Oshiomhole’s office at the last floor of the national secretariat, stern looking security and other personal staff of the chairman asked him to leave immediately.
Some members of the party including some serving governors were said to have openly called for the removal of former Edo state governor as APC national chairman.
