The High Court sitting in Abuja, on Monday approved Chief Victor Giadom as Acting National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, ahead of the key emergency meeting of the National Executive Committee, NEC, of the party this Tuesday in Abuja.
Giadom, the party’s Deputy National Secretary, who is the highest ranking official, has been leading the party since the High Court in the FCT ordered Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to vacate office as National Chairman, following latter’s suspension by the party in Edo State, his home state.
It became almost obvious not long ago that President Muhammadu Buhari had withdrawn his support for Oshiomhole and tacitly encouraged his ouster ostensibly for his poor management of party affairs. Buhari is scheduled to attend the NEC meeting.
The Court of Appeal Monday said a panel of justices would be reconstituted to hear Oshiomhole’s appeal of the order removing him from office.
