High Court Restrains Victor Giadom From Parading Himself As Acting National Chairman Of APC 3

Justice F. A. Fiberesima gave the interim order on Friday in Suit No: PHC/360/2020 between Dele Moses with Azunda Wori (claimants/applicants) and APC, Adams Oshiomhole, Victor Giadom, Igo Aguma and Babatunde Ogala (defendants/respondents).

Justice Fiberesima in the order stated that Giadom was not a member of the APC National Working Committee (NWC).

The court also held that third defendant was not the deputy national secretary, acting chairman or national chairman of the party because he resigned to contest the 2019 general elections as deputy governor of Rivers State.

The state High Court further granted an order of perpetual injunction restraining APC from recognising or regarding Giadom, as either a member of NWC, or as a deputy national secretary, national chairman, or acting national chairman of APC.

The court also granted an order restraining the third defendant from issuing, signing or endorsing any document or correspondence to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), or any other body or institution in the capacity of national chairman, or acting national chairman of the party.

KanyiDaily had reported that the APC has been embroiled in a leadership crisis following the appeal court ruling that upheld the suspension of Adams Oshiomhole as national chairman of the party.

On Tuesday, Giadom had announced that he has taken over the leadership of the party after Oshiomhole’s suspension, dismissing the party’s announcement of the former Oyo governor, Abiola Ajimobi, as acting chairman.

However, the national working committee of the APC overruled him and appointed Hillard Eta, vice chairman of the party (south-south), to stand in place for Ajimobi who was “unavoidably absent”.
