Court approves acting national chairman for APC

The High Court Monday approved Chief Victor Giadom as the 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 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 Adams Oshiomhole to vacate office as National Chairman following his suspension by the party in Edo State, his home state.

It was reported that President Muhammadu Buhari had withdrawn his support for Oshiomhole and tacitly encouraged his ouster following his poor management of party affairs.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.
