A Federal High Court in Abuja has renewed the order empowering Chief Victor Giadom to act as the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for two weeks.
The court also empowered Comrade Mustapha Salihu, the APC National Vice Chairman (North East) to act as the National Secretary.
With this, it is becoming clearer that APC may not be able to field any candidate in the September 19 governorship election in Edo State.
Chief Victor Giadom had said yesterday, that he was the authentic Acting National Chairman of the APC, following a ruling of the Federal Capital Teritory High Court.
Giadom who is the party’s Deputy National Secretary said he was the highest ranking official following the ruling of the Court of Appeal on Tuesday, which upheld Oshiomhole’s suspension and declared all his actions since his suspension, null and void.
APC National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Isa-Onilu, had announced ailing Senator Abiola Ajimobi as the Acting National Chairman, being the Deputy National Chairman (South). But Giadom, who spoke through his counsel, Wole Afolabi, said consequent upon an order of the FCT High Court issued on March 16, 2020, by Hon. Justice S.U Bature in Suit No. FCT/HC/M/6447/202, “Chief Victor Giadom is to act as the National Chairman.”
