Appeal Hearing Postponed Indefinitely
The Court of Appeal, Abuja, on Monday failed to hear the scheduled hearing in the appeal by the National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.
The court had, last week sent notices of hearing to parties in the appeal.
However, on Monday, a panel of three Justices led by Justice Stephen Adah sat to hear other cases. Thereafter, the panel promised that another panel shall be reconstituted to hear Oshiomole’s appeal.
But a female official of the court later announced to a packed courtroom that the court has elected to hear Oshiomole’s appeal on a later date to be communicated to parties.
Oshiomhole and his supporters, who were in court were shocked at the decision of the court.
The embattled National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) told journalists that he would await the court’s decision in the case.
Oshiomhole’s appeal is against an earlier judgment of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), which among others, restrained him acting as the National Chairman of the APC.
