Unbelievable: APC has a new Chairman, albeit an interim one. Senator Abiola Ajimobi, a former governor of Oyo state, is the new man. An Appeal Court has upheld the earlier suspension of Adams Oshiomhole by a lower court. Crazy things happen: the disqualified governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, who had since resigned from APC could make it back. Everything depends on how Senator Ajimobi is sneezing.
Mr Oshiomhole was earlier suspended by the APC in Edo State in what is part of his battle with the state governor, Godwin Obaseki.
A Federal High Court also ruled that his suspension was legal and ordered Mr Oshiomhole to stop parading himself as APC national chairman.
The suspension was initially lifted after the appellate court granted a stay of execution of the high court’s order.
The appeal court on Tuesday, however, ruled that Mr Oshiomhole’s suspension was valid.
This throws a new twist into the Edo APC crisis as the party prepares for the governorship election.
Earlier on Tuesday, Mr Obaseki announced his resignation from the APC.
