A member of the National Working Committees (NWC) member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has just told newsmen at the national secretariat of the party that Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, is no longer the national chairman of the party based on a ‘subsisting’ court order.
The party chieftain said he was working on a petition to the Director-General of the Directorate of State Security Services (DSS), Inspector General of Police and the Presidency among others.
The Northeast National Vice Chairman of the party, Comrade Saliu Mustapha from Adamawa state, who came out of the ongoing NWC meeting at the party house, told newsmen (angrily) that from the Oshiomhole’s ward to the state he (Oshiomhole) has been suspended.
Mustapha said until another court judgement overturns the subsisting court order, Oshiomhole remained suspended.
Blueprint had earlier reported that there trouble rocking the APC at the Tuesday ongoing National Working Committee (NWC).
“Unless I see the reversal of the court order suspending Oshiomhole as the APC national chairman, I won’t allow him to seat here as the party’s national chairman.”
When our correspondent who has been at the party house since 10 am visited the Adams Oshiomhole’s office at the last floor of the national secretariat, stern-looking security and other personal staff of the chairman did ask him to leave immediately.
Some members of the party including some serving governors were said to have openly called for the removal of former Edo state governor as APC national chairman.
