The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole is now a topic of discussion in the Twitter community.
This is because he has been restrained by a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Jabi, Abuja from acting in the capacity.
In a ruling on an application for an interlocutory injunction on Wednesday, Justice Danlami Senchi, held that Oshiomhole should cease to occupy the position pending the determination of the substantive suit.
In his ruling, Justice Senchi opined that the APC was wrong to retain Oshiomhole as its National Chairman even when he is under suspension as a member of the party.
He, therefore, ordered Oshiomhole to stop parading himself as the National Chairman of the party and directed the party to cease acknowledging him in that regard.
The judge also restrained the party from allowing Oshiomhole to access the party secretariat henceforth.
See some of the reactions that followed the court judgement.
APC is gradually crumbling and @MBuhari is acting unbothered because he has nothing at stake come 2023. Why should Oshiomhole and Obaseki’s issue gets to this stage?

I hope you people are happy that Oshiomhole has finally been sacked by court? I have his direct number and can reach him whenever I want. How many of you have the same opportunity?
Oshiomhole has nothing to lose. pic.twitter.com/2Gwe0AaXjo

Court suspends Oshiomhole as APC chairman
I’m beginning to think the Courts are assuming the powers they don’t have. Judges will soon start arrogating to themselves the powers to appoint party chairs. The powers to discipline party officers are internal displinary mechanisms!

Oshiomhole is unshakable, Obaseki and Co can only try their best to dislodge him, but to their greatest surprise they will never succeed. Those few men against Adams are obviously not loyal to the APC party and its course, they are good for nothing, good looking bad eggs.
