The Court of Appeal, Abuja Division on Tuesday, dismissed the suit brought before it by the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomole, challenging his suspension from the party.
A three-member panel of Justices of the appellate court, presided over by Justice Uchechukwu Onyemenam, in a unanimous decision, yesterday dismissed the appeal following Oshiomole’s request to that effect.
The former APC National Chairman had approached the Court, challenging his suspension from the party by officials of his ward in Edo State.
Justice Danlami Senchi of a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja had given effect to the suspension of Oshiomhole from his ward on the ground that the executives of Ward 10 in Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State acted in line with the constitution of the party.
At the resumed hearing of the suit, the counsel representing the former chairman told the court of his client’s decision to withdraw the suit which originally sought a stay of execution on the judgment of the court affirming his suspension.
Other members of the three-man panel are Justice Mohammed Mustapha and Justice Muazu Lamido.
Oshiomhole’s action followed the appeal by President Muhammadu Buhari to all aggrieved members of the APC to withdraw all pending litigations in the interest of peace.
The National Executive Council (NEC) of the party had also dissolved the National Working Committee (NWC) of the APC.
It would also be recalled that the Appeal Court recently affirmed the suspension of Oshiomole as a member and National chairman of the APC, having upheld Justice Senchi’s decision in March this year, which ordered the suspension of Oshiomole as well as stopping him from parading himself as the national chairman of the ruling party.
