The crisis within the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) appears to have deteriorated in recent days, with a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court ordering the removal of its National Chairman, Adams Oshiomhole. Oshiomhole however fought back by obtaining a Federal High Court order from Kano halting his removal. It will be recalled that Mr. Oshiomhole had been suspended from the party by his Ward in Edo State in November 2019 and a vote of no confidence was also passed on him by 18 Local Government Chairmen of the party in Edo State. These formed the basis for the suspension order made by the court. Mr. Oshiomhole has been unable to resume duties as the Police has sealed off the National Secretariat of the party in Wuse, Abuja over the conflicting court orders. The APC Chairman has come under immense pressure to resign over the diminishing fortunes of the party in Rivers and Zamfara States in the last general elections, as well as the election of David Lyon in Bayelsa State, which was upturned by the Supreme Court. The party’s National Secretary speaking on the suspension, stated that the party would abide by the order of the court which suspended Oshiomhole.
