Ajimobi’s ‘elevation’, OYOINSIGHT.COM understands, came after the Appeal court had last night upheld the suspension of the party’s national chairman, Adams Oshiomhole.

But in a press release signed by lawyer to the party’s deputy national secretary, Victor Giadom, Chief Oluwole Afolabi, he insisted that the judgement that was upheld that led to the exit of Oshiomole said his client is to act as the national chairman of the party due to the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman.

The order, OYOINSIGHT.COM further recalls, was given the same day that the court of appeal earlier gave Oshiomhole a temporary respite by staying the execution of the said order suspending Oshiomhole.

Afolabi said that “Now that the Court of Appeal has affirmed the order of suspension, it is only proper that the order recognizing Chief Victor Giadom is implemented

PRESS RELEASE BY CHIEF OLUWOLE AFOLABI, ESQ

COURT RECOGNIZES VICTOR GIADOM AS ACTING NATIONAL CHAIRMAN OF APC

Our attention has been drawn to a Statement purportedly issued by the Publicity Secretary of the APC to the effect that Senator Abiola Ajumobi is to act as the National Chairman of APC following the suspension from office of Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by the Court of Appeal.

We wish to state that the statement must have been issued in complete ignorance of the order of the FCT High Court issued on 16th of March, 2020, by Hon. Justice S.U Bature in Suit No. FCT/HC/M/6447/2020 to the effect that Chief Victor Giadom is to act as the National Chairman of the party due to the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as the National Chairman.

The order was given the same day that the Court of Appeal earlier gave Oshiomhole a temporary respite by staying the execution of the said order suspending Oshiomhole. Now that the Court of Appeal has affirmed the order of suspension, it is only proper that the Order recognizing Chief Victor Giadom is implemented.

Consequently, we have written to all law-enforcement agencies to implement the said order and any one who attempts to parade himself/herself other than Chief Victor Giadom as the Acting Chairman of the APC would be facing contempt of court proceedings.

Kindly find attached the said Court Order.
Thank You,
CHIEF WOLE AFOLABI.
