The embattled National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Mr Adams Oshiomhole, has got a temporary reprieve as the Court of Appeal in Abuja ordered a stay of execution of an FCT High Court’s order suspending him from office as the party’s National Chairman.

In a ruling delivered by a three-man panel of the appellate court led by Justice Abubakar Yahaya, the order of the court was stayed as sought by Oshiomhole.

The court ruled that the order would remain binding pending the hearing of Oshiomhole’s motion for interlocutory injunction scheduled for Friday.

Persecondnews recalls that Justice Danlami Senchi of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Jabi, Abuja, had on March 4 gave an order suspending Oshiomhole and to stop parading himself as chairman.

The party members were also restrained from recognizing or addressing him as such and that Police should bar him from entering the office.

The Appeal Court also restrained the respondents including the Police and the Department of State Services from further giving effect to the suspension order.

Justice Yahaya made the order after an ex-parte application by Oshiomhole’s lawyer, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN) seeking an order for a stay of execution of the lower court’s order.
