Nwolu Obiajulu

Ousted National Chairman of the All Progressive congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has expressed his lack of animosity over the Appeal Court ruling that removed him as the ruling party’s leader.

Oshiomhole has said he accepts the judgement in food faith and will seek the advice of his lawyer on the next action to be taken.

According to him, “All my life has been that of struggle. People always oppress me, harass me and the court has always come to my aid even my being governor is courtesy of the court.

“So the judgment, I accept it in good faith and my lawyers will advise having studied the judgment what will be the next line of action.

“In our democracy, the court is an independent arm of government. When they hand out judgment, it is not for you to choose weither to obey or not.
“I accept their judgment in good faith, I am a product of judiciary.”

He dismissed the claims of Victor Giadom who had declared himself as the party’s Acting National Chairman saying that the judgement of the court did not disband the National Working Committee (NWC) and constitution of the APC. Therefore, decisions of the NWC are valid.

Oshiomhole said that Giadom lacked the authority to reverse the report submitted by the committee which screened candidates for the primary in Edo state, Nigeria which had been approved by the NWC.

He accused some party members of brewing conflict in the party for selfish interest.

He said, “The Court of Appeal did not suspend the NWC and constitution of the party.

“As I was told and read in the media, about 16 out of 20 members of NWC took some decisions to ensure that all attempt to scuttle the forthcoming primary in Edo was not successful.

“They went ahead to appoint primary election committee that will conduct the election and ensure that it is done creditably.

“They appointed a governor to chair the panel as the returning officer with other eminent members of the party that have been given that assignment by the NWC today.

“I was not there because of the court order I have to stay away.

“But my advise to my brother is about common sense. If the chairman is absent, it should be deputy chairman. In the absence of deputy chairman, it is the vice chairman. How does a deputy secretary come in. As we speak, we have a secretary working late hours to ensure that the secretariat functions.

“I think that my brother, Victor Giadom, want to take our party to Rivers State where they created so much problems.”
