Following the Appeal Court’s ruling that sacked Comrade Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC yesterday, Chief Victor Giadom, the party’s incumbent Deputy National Secretary has come out to state that he should be recognized as the Chairman of the party.
This is as the NWC of the party had announced Senator Abiola Ajimobi, who is the Deputy National Chairman (South) of the party as its interim Chairman.
Victor Giadom in a statement by his counsel, Chief Wole Afolabi stated that, “Our attention has been drawn to a statement purportedly issued by the Publicity Secretary of the APC to the effect that Senator Abiola Ajimobi is to act as the National Chairman of APC following the suspension from office of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by the Court of Appeal.
”We wish to state that the statement must have been issued in complete ignorance of the order of the FCT High Court issued on 16th of March, 2020 by Hon. Justice S.U Bature in Suit No. FCT/HC/M/6447/2020 to the effect that Chief Victor Giadom is to act as the National Chairman of the party due to the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman.”
The recent development will further deepen the crises already faced by the ruling APC, which saw the Edo Governor, Obaseki resign his membership of the party yesterday.
