Despite the several health conditions of the former governor of Oyo State, Abiola Ajimobi, the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) name the immediate past governor as its acting chairman yesterday.
Haba Naija confirms that the decision of the APC NWC comes after the Court of Appeal affirms the suspension of its National Chairman, Adams Oshiomole in Abuja yesterday.
In a statement issued by its National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Oniu on Tuesday night, the Apc expresses it has received the news indicating the Appeal Court has upheld the suspension of the Party’s National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole by an FCT High Court pending the determination of the substantive suit.
The statement reads as thus; “Guided by advice from the Party’s legal department in line with the provisions of Section 14.2. (iii) of the Party’s constitution, the Deputy National Chairman (South), Sen. Abiola Ajimobi will serve as the Party’s Acting National Chairman.
“According to Section 14.2. (iii), of the APC constitution, the Deputy National Chairman, North/South “Shall act as the National Chairman in the absence of the National Chairman from his zone”, the APC NWC stated in its statement.
A lot of Nigerians begin to wonder if the newly selected acting chairman of the party would be able to function despite his severe health condition.
