Victor Giadom takes over as acting National Chairman of the APC , says I have the backing of NWC
Deputy national secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Victor Giadom has taken over as the Acting National Chairman of the party.
His appointment comes after an order of the Court of Appeal, on Tuesday, affirming the suspension of Mr Adams Oshiomhole as APC National Chairman.
“I have taken over based on previous Court order empowering me to do so. Giadom told a news conference in Abuja”.
He however also cancelled the Edo State governorship Primaries.
Ruling on the interlocutory appeal filed by Comrade Oshiomhole, the appellate court upheld the decision of the Federal Capital Territory High Court delivered by Justice Danlami Senchi which in March ordered the suspension of Oshiomhole as well as restraining him from parading himself as the National Chairman of the party.
In a unanimous judgement in the first appeal delivered by Justice
Eunice Onyemanam, the court held that the FCT High Court had territorial jurisdiction to have entertained the suit as it did.
The court also withdrew his rights and privileges as National Chairman of the party including his security details.
The appeal court predicated its decision on the ground that Comrade Oshiomole as the first appellant is based in Abuja while the APC also has its national headquarters in the capital city.
