The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has dismissed the suit filed by a former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC Adams Oshiomole, challenging his suspension from the party.

A three-man panel of judges presided over by Justice Uchechukwu Onyemenam unanimously dismissed the appeal at the request of the former APC national chairman.


Oshiomole had approached the court seeking to challenge his suspension from the party by officials of his ward in Edo State.


At the resumed hearing of the suit, the counsel representing the former chairman informed the court of his client’s decision to withdraw the suit which originally sought a stay of execution on the judgment of the court affirming his suspension.


Other members of the three-man panel are Justice Mohammed Mustapha and Justice Muazu Lamido.


This comes after President Muhammadu Buhari appealed to all aggrieved members of the APC to withdraw all pending litigations in the interest of peace.


Justice Danlami Senchi of an Abuja High Court had given effect to the suspension of Oshiomole from his ward on the ground that the executives of Ward Ten in Etsako West Local Government Area of Edo State acted in line with the constitution of the party.
