A three-man panel of the Appeal Court has upheld an earlier ruling by a High Court suspending Oshiomhole as APC National Chairman.
Adams Oshiomhole’s suspension as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has been upheld by the Court of Appeal in Abuja.

The appellate court held that Oshiomhole’s appeal was without merit.
The FCT High Court had, in its judgment in March, held among others that Oshiomhole could no longer function as the APC National Chairman having been suspended by his local branch, a suspension he faild to challenged before the party’s National Working Committee (NEC) suspended him.
