The High Court in the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, on Monday approved Chief Victor Giadom as Acting National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Giadom is Oshiomhole’s rival the national chairmanship of the since he was sacked by the court and the party’s Deputy National Secretary, who is the highest ranking official.
He has been leading the party since the High Court in the FCT ordered Comrade Adams Oshiomhole to vacate office as National Chairman following his suspension by the party in Edo State, his home state.
There are indications that President Muhammadu Buhari has since withdrawn his support for Oshiomhole and tacitly encouraged his ouster following his poor management of party affairs.
It was gathered that President Buhari is scheduled to attend the NEC meeting scheduled for week by the rival leadership.
The Court of Appeal Monday said a panel of justices would be reconstituted to hear Oshiomhole’s appeal of the order removing him from office.
President Muhammadu Buhari, after meeting with governors elected on the platform of the APC Monday, was said to have approved postponement of Tuesday’s scheduled meeting of the party’s National Executive Committee (NEC).
