Adams Oshiomhole is fighting the battle of his life after being removed as Chairman of the All Progressives Congress.
The suspended National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has fought back after being suspended yesterday by a court in Abuja.
Oshiomhole has now filed for a stay of execution.
Commenting on the issue, the spokesperson for the suspended national chairman, Simon Ebegbulem, said, “We have filed for a stay of execution and appealed the order. Comrade Adams Oshiomhole remains the national chairman.”
Oshiomhole appealed against the order for his suspension on Wednesday.
He filed four grounds of appeal before the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal, praying for an order setting aside the interlocutory injunction issued by Justice Danlami Senchi of the FCT High Court.
In the notice of appeal filed in his name and that of the APC, the appellants contended that the judge “arrived at a wrong conclusion” in his ruling and it “occasioned a miscarriage of justice”.
The appellants also argued through his lawyer, Mr Damian Dodo (SAN), that the judge in his ruling prejudged the substantive case by erroneously delving into the issue of his performance of the duty of his office as the national chairman of the party at the preliminary stage.
They added, “The trial court determined the motion for interlocutory injunction without recourse to triable issues which ought to have been discerned from pleadings.”
Oshiomhole also said the court relied on “extraneous construction and speculation to overrule the appellants’ contention that the disruption capable of being occasioned by the grant of the interlocutory injunction outweighed the inconvenience to be suffered by the first to the sixth respondents.”
